IELTS Listening Sentence Completion Strategies

  • Look through the sentences before you start to get an idea of what you will be hearing.

  • Pay particular attention to the words that come before and after the gap to help you notice when the word is spoken.

  • Try to guess what may go in the gap - is it a place, name, number, or something else?

  • Remember that the words you see in the sentence may be synonyms of the words from the audio, so you may be listening out for words with similar meanings.

  • Write the exact words, phrases or numbers that you hear in the gap on your question paper.

  • Always check the word limit - your answer will be marked wrong if you exceed the number of words allowed.
