The listening section of the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is designed to assess your ability to understand spoken English in a variety of contexts. The listening section is divided into four parts, with a total of 40 questions.
Part 4 of the listening section consists of a monologue or a lecture, typically on an academic or technical subject. You will be asked a total of 10 questions about the monologue or lecture, and you will have 10 minutes to listen to the recording and answer the questions.
In this part of the test, you will be asked to understand the main points of the monologue or lecture and to identify specific details, such as names, dates, or definitions. You may also be asked to understand the purpose of the talk or to make inferences about the speaker’s intentions or attitudes.
Part 4 is typically the most challenging part of the listening section, as the monologue or lecture may be long and complex, and the speaker may use advanced vocabulary and technical terms. It is important to pay close attention to the speaker’s words and to take notes as needed in order to understand the content of the talk.
It is also important to manage your time effectively during this part of the test, as you will only have 10 minutes to listen to the recording and answer the questions. You may want to use the pause button or the replay function to review certain parts of the recording if needed.
