IELTS Listening Exercise 21 – Multiple Choice Questions 1

Difficulty level: Easy

Multiple choice questions in the listening test are always difficult. I can think of four reasons for this:

  1. There’s a lot of information in the question choices, so there’s a lot to think about while you’re listening.
  2. Some of the choices might be similar.
  3. All of the choices might be mentioned in some way.
  4. Synonyms or paraphrasing may be used instead of the words that you see in the choices.

Here’s a good example from Cambridge IELTS book 10, page 12.

Multiple Choice Questions

Which TWO facilities at the leisure club have recently been improved?

A) the gym
B) the tracks
C) the outdoor pool
D) the indoor pool
E) the sports training for children

Which two answers did you choose? Did you experience any of the four difficulties that I mentioned above?

Practice IELTS listening exercises more and more to improve your listening skills. On the real test, you will hear the recording only once and listening questions get increasingly difficult.
