I have a score of 523 in CET-6. Reading and writing are well prepared and practiced, but my listening comprehension is very poor. I took the test in August. I am worried now. How can I improve in one month?
Many roast ducks pay too much attention to learning in the IELTS listening session, instead of mastering certain skills! Let me share with you how to quickly improve IELTS listening skills and how to improve IELTS listening scores in a short period of time. , I hope to help everyone. 1. Pay attention to the transition IELTS listening is very cunning. I often say an answer before and change my words immediately, so be sure to pay attention to the words but, however, or sometimes say a plan first, and then immediately say probably it is better to. .. Then the answer becomes the latter again. In addition, pay attention to some key words such as so, now, which means that you may have to talk about the information of the next topic. 2. Don’t stay and hesitate. Maybe you will often encounter such a situation. Suddenly there is a topic that you don’t hear clearly. Don’t panic at this time. Don’t hesitate to write a little bit of the scattered information you hear. Next to the question, then immediately go to the next question. After all the listening is finished, when you go back and copy the answers, analyze which answer is the most likely based on the little information you recorded. If you stay and hesitate on that topic, you may miss the information on the next few topics. 3. Focus on listening. Some students like to listen to English when doing laundry or doing other things. They think this habit is not very good. Because over time, when you really do IELTS listening, you will not be so focused. It should be in a quiet environment, take a notebook, listen attentively, and record the vital information at the same time. 4. Emphasis on shorthand ability and skills. I think shorthand ability is also very important, because when you do listening, you often hear a message and write it down quickly, but when you finish writing, you find that the next message has been missed. Usually, you should practice your shorthand skills. For example, when listening to foreign language news, try to write down all the key sentences. Write fast and practice English even pen writing. In addition, I suggest that you only write the first two letters or its abbreviation when you hear a message, and then listen to the next message immediately. But sometimes when a sentence requires you to fill in two faiths next to each other, it is best to listen to the sentence and then write the two pieces of information on it. How to use time efficiently in IELTS listening: IELTS listening does not always hear the answer? It may be that the synonymous substitution has not been reviewed. Many students in IELTS listening are always waiting for the recording based on the topic, but there is still no effective information after waiting until the next space has passed. This situation is often expressed in another way of synonymous or synonymous sentences in the recording. IELTS Listening Test Sections 1 and 2 test the necessary skills for survival in an English-speaking country. Including: accommodation, transportation, entertainment, health, shopping and so on. Main test points: understand the key points in the real information. Sections 3 and 4 test the training or curriculum issues that students may encounter during the study abroad, including: lectures, group discussions, meetings, and academic issues with other students discuss. Candidates should pay attention to the main points in this part, but also pay attention to details, the meaning of cultural background words, and understand the issues of academic discussion. The question types of the four parts are different. However, there are no more than three question types for each part. Sometimes, there is only one question type for one part. The difficulty of listening will gradually increase from one to four parts. Candidates can record their answers in the test book during the listening process, and have 10 minutes to copy the answers at the end of the listening tape. Generally speaking, the listening part of the test will be collected immediately after the recording is finished. The IELTS test is different from the general test. It has a total of 40 minutes, 30 minutes of listening time and 10 minutes of transcription time. So how to use the IELTS listening test time efficiently and reasonably? First, let’s talk about how we can use the 30-minute listening time. During this time, we have to complete the four steps of reading, guessing, listening, and writing. Before each exam, a recording about the exam requirements will be played. For candidates who are already familiar with the exam requirements, they can use this recording time to read SECTION 4 questions. Because SECTION 4 is the most difficult of the four SECTIONs, and 10 questions appear in one go without a pause in the middle, so use this time to read some questions first, which can reduce the burden in the future. When you hear the words SECTION 1, start reading the SECTION 1 questions again. At the beginning of each recording, there will be about 30 seconds to read the questions. Candidates should take the time to read and guess the questions, and listen attentively during the playback, try to obtain the missing information, and make quick records. After the end of each SECTION, there will be about 30 seconds of checking time. It is recommended that candidates keep the check answers in the 10 minutes of transcription answer time and use this 30 seconds to read the next SECTION. Then, let’s take a look again, what should we pay attention to in this 10-minute answer time. Ten minutes to transcribe the answer can be said to be more than enough. Since there is such a long time, candidates should make good use of it and try to perfect the answer as much as possible. When transcribing and checking the answers, pay special attention to the following points: the capitalization of names, place names, days of the week, month and some proper nouns and the singular and plural subjects of the spelling nouns are consistent. The spelling of currency symbols abbreviations and whether the dots for abbreviations are consistent. The tense of the verb and the expression of the voice date are generally accepted, such as 8th August or August 8th. Remember: if the question mentions NO MORE THAN THREE WORDS, if the candidate’s answer is more than 3 words, you must Those who are deducted, even if it is a or the. Remember: IELTS listening answer requires correct spelling of words and correct grammar. However, IELTS words are basically high-frequency words, which can be spelled in British or American style. Proper nouns will be spelled out on the tape. Before the beginning of each section, the tape will mention the speaker, location, and general content. This passage is not in the test booklet. Please pay attention. And will tell them the question number to pay attention to. Note: Only one, two, and three parts are interrupted, and the fourth part is not. Also, there are only examples at the beginning of the first part, so please note that candidates only have one chance to listen to the tape. All IELTS listening questions are listed in tape order, so candidates can know how to choose. Moreover, candidates have half a minute to check the answers after each part, but it is recommended that candidates use this time to look at the questions in the next part. IELTS test: basic exercises of listening practice materials + set of exercises, balance exercises 30 minutes a day is sufficient. Basic exercises: you can use Listen to this as a blueprint for the first and intermediate levels of English, and 20 or less in 40 courses-elementary listening For more than 20 questions within 40 channels-Intermediate Listening Note: You can repeat the exercises and fill in the set of questions with a pencil: I strongly recommend Cambridge Books 3 and 4, which are the closest to the real questions in the market. Note: Correct the answer after listening. , But you have to listen to the answer repeatedly or you can’t judge and then look at the answer. Note that the words that have appeared on the Cambridge question are the key points you have to recite: Don’t listen to it before going to bed at night!! Then how to improve in a short time IELTS listening score? Although the IELTS listening test has many factors that are conducive to score points, generally speaking, it should be scored, but from a practical point of view, apart from personal English proficiency problems, a small number of test ducks cannot understand the recording, and most of the IELTS students’ confusion is mainly concentrated In the following three points: 1. I can’t keep up with the rhythm, I’m still thinking about this sentence, and the recording has gone to the next sentence; 2. The left ear goes in and the right ear comes out, and I clearly hear it. When I lower my head to write the answer, because I have to Taking into account the recordings that were still playing, God forgot the answers that were just thought up just now; Third, I understood all the listening content, but I just did the wrong question. The above three points can all point to the same reason, that is, candidates lack the necessary test guidance and have not yet figured out how to take the IELTS listening test. The key to IELTS listening is not “listening”, but “leak”: the vocabulary of IELTS listening test is not complicated, the grammar is not advanced, and there are no difficult phrases and uncommon expressions, and the topics involved are all familiar and easy for students. Understandable. Roast ducks have repeatedly stumbled on their listening. The key is that there is a wrong guiding ideology at work, and that is: if you want to test your listening well, you must hear every word. The result is a high level of mental stress, and the nerves are tightened throughout the whole process; I dare not let go of any word, the brain is overloaded; I pay too much attention to the recording, and ignore the test papers and test questions; because of this, the content of the recording is ” All treatments are treated equally”, regardless of priority. Therefore, once IELTS listening has special situations such as increased speech speed, long sentences, continuous reading, swallowing, changes in intonation, and the speaker’s laughter, the roast duck will often panic and affect its performance. What roast ducks need to remember is that you are listening, not translating. There is no need to listen to words one by one, there must be trade-offs. Use the time difference to make a good prediction. Take an IELTS listening test in December last year as an example: Section 1 is a fill-in-the-blank test, which is about booking a farewell party. The title has suggested the key points that need to be paid attention to, such as: Which room, estimated number of people, seat, layout, company name, post code, contact, contact number, additional request, when listening to the recording, focus on these key points, and combine them with the title Irrelevant “nonsense” leaked. Section 2 is still a fill-in-the-blank question. The test is garbage collection. You can also predict the points to be investigated according to the prompts of the question, and then focus on finding the key words. You can relax and listen to the rest of the dialogue part of the recording and “leak” the past. Section 3 is a multiple-choice question + matching question, let’s talk about it separately. Multiple choice questions are one of three choices, one of which is: In .X magazines view, whats the biggest concern to oil supply? A. The large amount of oil used everyday. B. The increasing dependence oil related products. C. The length of time passed from the peak of oil production. Similarly, before listening to the recording, make a pre-judgment, A is talking about daily consumption, B is talking about dependence, and C is talking about the duration after the peak of production. The next step is to pay attention to the paraphrase (synonymous substitution) in the recording. A may be consumption, B may be a single source, and C may be since. Listen with questions and options, and be targeted. The matching question is given a trend chart with coordinates on the horizontal axis, similar to the following: letters are marked in places such as wave crests and troughs, and candidates are required to find corresponding information. For roast ducks, graphic questions may be relatively unfamiliar, but predictive techniques can still be used. According to the characteristics of each curve, such as the highest point, the lowest point, stability, turning, etc., pay attention to the expression when listening to the recording. Numbers and changing words, such as peak, lowest point, fluctuate, remain the same, after…grow, dip, etc. This type of topic requires sensitivity to numbers and changes, and requires more targeted training at ordinary times. Section 4 is about filling in the blanks, testing robotics company and camera development. Since the title itself has already given a lot of information, similar to section 2, find the keywords in advance and wait for the corresponding information in the recording to appear. In summary, in addition to studying hard and practicing hard, roast ducks must pay attention to the characteristics of the IELTS listening test and adopt targeted test-taking skills. The summary is as follows: 2 points of IELTS listening comprehension need to be noted: 1. Force yourself to understand every word and never miss any word 2. The whole process is nervous and no breathing time is left. Finally, the IELTS listening must be able to listen, even more. Will miss (omitted), allocate one’s attention reasonably, don’t be overly nervous; be good at starting from the topic, grasp the key information; use the time difference between listening questions, first look at the questions and make predictions.
