The ••••••• •• ••• • best preparation for Listening Young Kim NTV Congty TNHH Nhan Tri Vi~t ~ NHA XUAT BAN TONG HQP THANH PHO HO CHI MINH 4 As far as I know, students of English usually find listening the most difficult. Personally, listening is a very necessary skill in real life. It is easy to master if its sub-skills can skillfully be applied when listening . Concerning IELTS, the Listening test tends to select authentic materials from real life and academic contexts, which is essential for daily communication and especially for those who are planning to study in an English-speaking environment. Understanding this situation, I have tried to work out user-friendly material to facilitate English learning, especially helping English learners to improve their listening skill more effectively. Our practical step-by-step guide to test practice as well as important skills presented and explained will certainly meet your expectations and bring success to your coming IELTS test.

Summary Completion Your task is to complete a summary. Generally, you have to fill in the gaps in a short paragraph which summarises the main ideas of one part of the talk or the entire talk and this summary is a paraphrased text. You will, therefore, need to have a good understanding of the overall meaning and main points of the section summarised, rather than a detailed understanding of the text. www.nhantriviet.com PART 1 27 3. Sentence Completion There is a slight difference between note or summary completion and sentence completion. In this type, the gaps can come at the beginning, in the middle, or at the end of the sentences given. 4. Table/Form Completion In this task type, candidates are required to fill in gaps in an outline of one part or of all of the listening text.
