This is most students’ favourite task as you have 50% chance of getting each question right! But, you want to get 100% right, so read these tips to help you.
  • Before you listen predict if the sentence is true or false. Listen to confirm.
  • Underline the key words or information in the sentence.
  • Try changing the sentence into a question. It might help you listen for the right information. For example:
    True or False: Cassie likes extreme sports. Change the sentence into a question: Does Cassie like extreme sports? Yes or No?  Then listen for key information to confirm answers.
  • Key information is usually stressed.
  • Do you get negative points for wrong answers? If not, always answer all the questions, even if you guess. You have a 50% chance of being right!
  • Do you have to correct the false sentences? If so, make notes while you listen and write the correct sentence after you listen. Check the grammar, spelling and punctuation carefully after you listen, not while you listen.


How well did you do in the exercise? Have you ever done a listening exam with this type of question?

Hi congnguyenhnn! There's no audio on this page, just tips for listening. To practise your listening, go to Listening (in the Skills section). Best wishes, Joanna (LearnEnglish Teens team)

Actually, listening part is not my weakest especially true or false section but sometimes I hesite with answer in section with multiple choose because all "answers " are disscused during conversation and you must listen very carefully in order do not skip anything that refers to right choose.
