Can you suggest please a good book to help me with listening?


Hi Thanks for the question! The ‘Official Cambridge Guide to IELTS Students Book with Answers’ is an excellent self study book which covers all aspects of the test. Also wherever possible, choose something for listening practice where you have the option of seeing the words written down. This could be as a transcript from one of the practise test papers, subtitles or, if it’s a song, the lyrics. Play a short extract and try and write down what you hear. Pause this as many times as you need. Check by listening again and identify where you made mistakes, was it a word you didn’t know or maybe it was the pronunciation? remember native English speakers use weak forms and connected speech. Check out the last section of our listening masterclass for more information.
