This lesson is a picture multiple choice. It is one of the most difficult types of listening questions in your IELTS listening test. This particular listening lesson is similar to the type of question you might get in Section 4 – the most difficult section in the test.
The listening practice below is mainly aimed at students who are band score 7 and above. For students under band score 7, you can use this listening exercise to improve your vocabulary and listening technique when I post the answers tomorrow. Now prepare both question and picture options before listening and answering the question.
