· Listening

IELTS Listening sẽ có rất nhiều phần Filling the gap (điền từ vào chỗ trống) đặc biệt là chiếm gần trọn cả section 1 và section 4.

Ở section 1, lời đọc chậm và rõ ràng rất dễ kiếm trọn 10 điểm phần này nếu tập trung nghe lời thoại giữa hai nhân vật. (Mẹo nhỏ là học thuộc kỹ bảng chữ cái, số đếm và số thứ tự)

Tuy nhiên Section 4 không dễ dàng như vậy, thông thường sẽ là một bài luận hay diễn văn tập trung về một đề tài. Các câu được paraphase rất nhiều, đan xen với các từ vựng mới với mục đích gây nhiễu. Do đó việc nghe HIỂU là vô cùng quan trọng, cần khái quát nội dung bài Listening trước để tránh bị hụt thông tin. Thêm vào đó, tốc độ đọc rất nhanh nên bạn tránh dành quá lâu cho một câu hỏi. (Mẹo nhỏ là không cần viết quá hoàn chỉnh câu trả lời, mà chỉ viết ký hiệu, vì bạn có đến 10 phút cuối để viết lại sang giấy trả lời - Answer sheet).
