Review the format of the IELTS listening test.
In this section, we look at how knowledge of a subject and the context can help you to understand listening passages and answer IELTS listening questions.
Learn how to use the topic to predict words and content in listening exercises.
Many words have more than one meaning but often you may not be familiar with all of the different meanings of a word. The context, however, can help you decide which meaning is intended. Practice here.
Sometimes we might know the stem of a word and be able to work out the meaning by recognising prefixes and suffixes. Practice this skill here.
Write about anything related to this topic here and share your sentences from the previous lesson.
More practice guessing meaning through context.
You do not need to guess the meaning of every word in order to understand a listening passage. Practice deciding which words are most important to understanding here.
