Prepare the questions below by underlining keywords and paraphrasing before you listen to the recording.
Reading City Travel Information
1. How long is the journey from Heathrow to Reading by express bus?
2. On the intercity from Paddington, which stop is Reading?
3. How frequent is the Paddington intercity train?
- About 1 hour
The length of time is given “it takes….”. IELTS will try to confuse you by giving two numbers in the same sentence – one number is the length and the other number is the frequency.
- First stop
- Each hour / every hour
The frequency is given “running each hour”. You need to listen for the frequency not the length of the journey.
You notice I put capital letters at the start of my answers – you don’t need to use them but you will not be marked down if you do. Capital letters are not marked 2017. See the IELTS Exam FAQ page
