The IELTS Listening test takes about 30 minutes, plus extra 10 minutes to transfer your answers to the answer sheet. You will hear four recorded monologues and conversations. Sections 1 and 2 are based on everyday social context and sections 3 and 4 are connected to training, education and academic interest. You will get 40 questions and probably the first thing you should do is to get used to the types of question that can appear on the test. Good luck!
