Good listening practice for IELTS

Unread postby Paul E » 15 Aug 2008, 15:36

It’s not easy to get listening practice but Wikipedia has an archive of spoken articles – useful for this and pronunciation practice. See it at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Spoken_articles.

There are lots more good links at http://www.activeielts.com.

Cheers

Yup, it can be tough finding quality IELTS listenings. I have been scouring the net and have set up a wiki for my students with all the quality material I could find (20+ listenings). If you want go have a look, it's all completely free and open access. You can find it at Dominic Cole's IELTS Resources http://ilsielts.wetpaint.com

There are 12 complete Academic IELTS practice tests here: http://www.ielts-exam.net/index.php?option=com_content&task=category&sectionid=15&id=35&Itemid=64

I haven't checked them all but the first 2 are very well done.

Thanks for the great links for IELTS Listening practice. Since practice is so important when preparing for the IELTS Exam, I am always looking for interesting places for my students to gain experience.

I recently found a great website that has podcasts with written words, so students can listen and read the words at the same time: http://www.breakingnewsenglish.com/podcast.html

Also, there are some free IELTS Listening Practice Tests at: http://www.canadavisa.com/ielts/free-pr ... tests.html
I love being an ESL tutor! It is always fun and interesting!
