IELTS Listening Exercise Answers
Here are the Keywords
Think carefully = Reflect, pause for a moment and think
what they can contribute = what it is they’re bringing to the course
Show an example of their own film work = We would like to see moving image work if possible = ideally
The other answers were there to trick you!
Students when they are applying really need to reflect, pause for a moment and think “what it is that they’re bringing to the course” or whether they want to go with it. We want to see evidence that they do have some experience of thinking of telling stories visually. We don’t need to see a great deal. They shouldn’t panic about the quantity but they should reflect on what they have got that can show their talent and their creative ability. “Ideally, we would like to see moving image works”, but if an applicant had not have the chance to do that then they are welcome to show us drawings, photographs animations any work that is thinking about telling stories over time.
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.
Practising different types of IELTS Listening questions separately will help you to develop specific techniques for that kind of questions, and therefore get a higher IELTS Score on Listening test.
