Preparing for listening exams can be fun! Remember that the more you listen to English, the better you will be at listening tests and exams!
  • Listen to anything you can outside class in English. Songs, TV, films, video clips, the radio, podcasts... anything you are interested in.
  • Watch films in English with subtitles in English. If you listen and read English at the same time, this will help you hear the difference between the spelling of a word and its pronunciation.
  • Listen to songs and read the lyrics as you listen. Check out sites online where you can listen to songs and read the lyrics.
