IELTS Listening: English Names

In IELTS Listening Section 1, it is common to be asked to listen for English names.

This lesson will test you on your ability to listen and write down English names. After the answers, I’ll give you a list of tips to help you understand how to listen for names in IELTS Listening Section 1.

UPDATE 2017:  Capital letters are not marked in IELTS listening or reading so don’t worry about them. See this page for more info:

Are you good at spelling? Do you know your English names? Let’s see…

  1. Nazreen Farha says

    Hi Liz thanks for your videos. This section was interesting and informative. Perhaps one new thing I learnt is the pronunciation of Ms. Because I always thought it was the same as Miss

    • I’m glad it was helpful. I think many people confuse Ms and Miss with pronunciation.

  2. Hi Liz,

    Thanks for the useful tips.
    May I ask if space is needed between letters of initials? I mean J.K. Rowling or J. K. Rowling in this case. I am taking the computer-based test and that’s why I am concerned.

    Thank you.

    • I generally don’t use dots and do put a space between initials: J K Rowling. It isn’t a rule, but it does make it very clear.

  3. Wong Yoke Peng says

    Hi Liz,
    Should be J.K.Rowling or J.k.Rowling?

  4. Hi! May I ask how do I distinguish Ms and Miss in IELTS Listening? Thank you

  5. Dr. Mehreen says

    Will there not be a full stop ( . ) after Mr. Mrs.

    • Dots after titles are optional.

      • Which one is Correct: 1) MR. TROY. 2) Mr. Troy 3) MR TROY

        • the use of capital letters in the listening test does not impact whether the answer is correct or incorrect. As long as the actual answer is right, no matter how you write it, it will be marked right. This does not apply to the writing test where capital letters are marked as part of the marking criterion of Grammar.

  6. Sidhanth says

    Thank You Liz !!! Everything on your website is super useful and it really helped me get a 7.5 band score within a span of 15 days, despite being on a 9-6-6 full time job.

    God bless you, take care.

  7. Iheoma says

    Hi Liz, you videos are very helpful. Hope to watch more videos on names.

  8. Hello,
    Thank you for video. Just a doubt, you mentioned multiple times in your answers for listening that capital letters are not important, however, here you are saying to put capital letters to not lose a point. I would appreciate if you could clear it up for me.

    • Capital letters are useful in the paper based test to avoid complications with handwriting. That’s all.

  9. Tobi says

    Thanks Liz.
    I love your videos. Very insightful.

  10. Kolawole Abiodun says

    Greetings Liz.
    I wish you quick recovery

  11. Kolawole Abiodun says

    Hi Liz,
    Thanks for the listening tests.
    Pls can you post a video that will show you pronouncing all the alphabets from A to Z and laying emphasis on some letter that sometimes sound confusing. This will be quite helpful. Thanks

    • I’ll definitely add this to my list of videos to make. Unfortunately, it will take time because I’m too sick to make videos. But I’m sure one day I’ll get back to making videos and this will certainly be one of them.

      • I hope you get well soon dear. Thank you for all your efforts, I really appreciate it.

      • Ijiola Titilope says

        Get well soon

      • Lem Punay says

        Hi, Ms Liz. How have you been lately? I’ve been listening to all your videos and reading your posts one by one. I am an English Teacher and I find all the information you’ve been posting to be so helpful and easy to understand, especially for non-native English speakers. I have learned so many things from the tips you’ve provided in your blogs. I appreciate all of it, I’ve never seen errors in spelling or even missed words even in your long posts. I can say you’re a good proofreader as well and you really carry the real sense of being a good, effective teacher. Thank you for all your hard work! Good health to you!

      • Amosun-Akindele R. Oyenike says

        You are a blessing to myself and many others, and for this reason, I PRAY AND WISH YOU MIRACULOUS RECOVERY. May the universe be kind with you. Even after having my required band score, I would definitely love to read, listen and learn further. Thanks for all you do ma’am.

        • Thank you so much for your kind comment. I appreciate it. And well done getting your required score 🙂

  12. Kech says

    Hi Liz ,pls you only posted tips on multiple choice listening questions,pls what about the other parts and practice questions of the listening section like the – map completion ,diagram labeling , form completion ,note completion,flow chart completion,sentence completion ,summary completion,short answer questions,table completion . Please

    • Did you go to the main Listening section of this website?? You’ll find loads of practice lessons for many types of questions. Use the RED Menu Bar at the top of the website.

  13. Md Abu Yosuf says

    Hi Liz,
    Watching your lecture its very nice and very useful for me. I learning lessons from your video. Thanks a lot.

  14. Hello Liz, thank you for the lessons. They have been very helpful. I’d like to know if adding a dot (.) after writing Mr or Mrs is appropriate, as written for Dr.

  15. Tanuja Susarla says

    Hi Ma’am ,
    All the videos , practice tests and tips are very useful.
    However I have a doubt about the name “Sean” ; There are a few names which has the same pronunciation as “Sean” but spelled as “Shawn” and “Shaun”. Is there a way to find out the correct spelling to use for the names “Shawn & Shaun” unless they spell it?
    Example – Shawn Mendas & Shaun murphy.

    • If there are multiple spellings for names, IELTS will make sure that it is spelled out letter by letter. For example, “Sara without the h at the end”.

  16. Anirban says

    Hello Liz,

    For the initials, does it matter to use period & space after the initial letter or the title? Will it be considered as right or wrong if I omit the period or the space?

    1: J. K. Rowling
    2. JK Rowling
    3. J K Rowling
    4. Mr Sean Fergus
    5. Mr. Sean Fergus

    Are all of these correct?

    Warm regards & thanks,

    • They are all fine.

      • victoria says

        Hi liz i find your videos explanatory and understanding.
        in aspect of the name spelling can names all be spelt all in capital it correct

        • Writing is capital letters is useful when you are taking the paper based test because handwriting needs to be clear and easy to read. For the computer based test, this isn’t an issue and you can choose capitals or lower case.

      • victoria says

        I mean
        JOHN SMITH
        J.K. ROWLING

        Is this format correct

  17. Arneet Kaur says

    Thanks for your informative videos Liz!
    Is it correct that I can type the whole name in capital letters in a computer delivered test, MR SEAN FERGUS, for example?

  18. Hi Liz, thanks for the lesson. Is there anything wrong in having a dot after the titles such as Mr. John, Mrs. Grace, or Ms. Sophia?

  19. Manpreet says

    It is very helpful thanks a lot mam 😇😇

  20. Rudmila Islam says

    I have just started preparing for IELTS. As I have my test coming up in just 22 days, I felt anxious. But your lessons are helping me a lot more than I predicted. Thank you so much for all your efforts and hard-working.
    I had a little question. While writing down names with Titles, should we use a full stop right beside it? Suppose, should we write ‘Mr. Sean Fergus’ or ‘Mr Sean Fergus’? Actually, in my high school back in my country, we used a full stop right beside titles.
    Thanks in advance.

    • You can use or not use the dot as you wish. It makes no difference in modern English and in IELTS.

  21. Phuong Dao says

    Dear Liz,

    Thank you for your lessons. They were very clear and helpful.
    I hope you can make more video about listening Postcode in IELTS.

    Best regards,


  22. Laraib Fatima says

    Hey Liz,

    I am following Cambridge Book for my listening practice and the question was ” Which underwater animal does Michelle say is the noisiest communicator?

    the answer was”shrimp” on the back (answer’s list)
    But i had written “Shrimp” with S capital would it be consider wrong ? Please confirm it to me.

    • I always recommend using all capital letters: SHRIMP. This is easier for the person marking the test.

  23. VAISHNAV K says

    Hi liz
    Thank you for your tips and helps me a lot.
    well i have a doubt
    can we write all the answers in listening in Capital letters?

  24. Dos Reis says

    Hi Liz, your tips are very useful. I used to not give my attention to the questions, instructions and panic and just focused on the reader/tapes and sometime made a wrong spelling, but after listening to your tips which makes me lots of sense and change my mindsets to more concentrate and focus. Hope your tips are going to help me to overcome my target band score of at least 6 or 6.5.

    Thanks for your patient and wish you have lots of good luck!

  25. Shashank Pradhan says

    Hi Liz,

    First of all thank you so much for your efforts. I have a question, suppose I would write initials as J K Rowling, without giving dot in between J K will it be considered as right answer?

  26. Indira says

    Hi Liz.
    Thanks a lot for your worthless efforts.
    Could you amswer to my question?
    If I wrote Mister instead of Mr. is it a mistake?

  27. Hi Liz! Thanks for all the knowledge that you have taught us.
    I am confused about this sentence;

    If they hadn’t interviewed participants face to face, they could have used a much bigger sample size.

    Can we understand ”they were interviewed face-to-face” from this sentence?

    • Correct. It means people were interviewed face to face, but if that choice had not been made, they could have had a bigger sample size.

  28. Yolanda says

    Hi Liz,

    Please confirm if the second initial in Rowling’s name in your video tutorial for names is actually written as a small letter k or a capital letter k? For people with two or three first names are the initials written in capital letters too in the IELTS listening test?

    • They are all capital letters. My writing isn’t clear. This is a good lesson for you all to learn about writing during the paper based IELTS test – make your writing clear.

  29. Ali Hasan AL - Burom says

    Thanks a lot for your great efforts exerted.

  30. Rabiya says

    Hi liz,
    This lesson is very helpful for me,
    Thanx for this video. U make me understand very clearly👍

  31. Kiranjot kaur says

    Thanks so much Liz !
    You are best teacher
    Your all videos are improving extremely helpful for me

    • I’m glad they are useful 🙂

      • Thilini Semasinghe says

        Hey Liz.. I did my ielts last week. And they said the word “Gold Coast” which is a place in Australia. However I didn’t know the word and I wrote “goal coast” since that’s how I heard it. They didn’t pronounce the word as well. Since it’s a proper noun, are they not supposed to spell out that word? You didn’t hear the “d” in gold because it is not pronounced when linking with a word that begins “c”. The “d” tends to melt into the “c” sound. Linking sounds is a normal part of spoken English and something that you learn at a higher level.

        • The two words are common words in the English language. They would not spell out a word unless there are two ways of spelling it or it is an uncommon name.

  32. Rashmi Munasinghe says

    Great Tips ! Thanks a lot for sharing these Liz!

  33. Hi Liz,

    I like the way you have organized the lessons.
    I have a question regarding initials. While using initials, I mentioned J K Rowling than J.K. Rowling. Is it necessary to use dots while mentioning it?
    Similarly, do we need to use it while we write titles such as Mr., Mrs.?


  34. Viviana Schwengber says

    I love your videos and this blog. Thank you so much, they´re very helpful.

  35. winona says

    I got all correct:
    Thanks a lot, a very useful tip.

  36. memo says

    Hello Liz
    Is it possible to provide us with a list shows the most common names of people in Ielts because I’m Egyptian man and I’m not familiar with these names

  37. Mina Moeini says

    Dear Liz,

    You are great. 🙂


  38. Uzair Mehmood says

    Hello Liz,

    Shouldn’t there be a dot after Mr and Mrs? Miss and Ms will not have dots but Mr and Mrs are abbreviations. You only used a dot after Dr.


  39. Eugene Ndungutse says

    Hello Liz,

    Thank you for your help on tips and training videos, they are much important to all ielts trainees.

  40. ManMan says

    Hi Liz, thanks for all you do. Could names in the listening test be written in all capital letters like you have advised beforehand, for example, JOHN SMITH or must it be written in the standard form – John Smith?

  41. Sandeep says

    Thank you Liz!!

    I never knew about this. Thanks a ton!

  42. Andres Jaramillo says

    You´re lessons are really useful, thank you so much.

  43. Priya says

    If the questions says’ no more than three words’ and the answer is 10th january, should we write the number in words.. Ten january?

    • It’s best to use digits for numbers rather than words. Any spelling mistake will mean the answer is marked wrong. The instructions, when the answer is a number, will always say “No more than three words and/or a number” OR “No more than three words and/or numbers”.

      • BELAL says

        Liz isn’t 10th itself is considered as a one word?

        • Don’t confuse writing with listening. All numbers in IELTS writing are counted as words because examiners are counting words. However, instructions in IELTS Listening allow for numbers to be counted as numbers: “No more than one word and a number”. So, January 10th is one word and one number. It is important that you don’t take one black and white rule to cover everything in IELTS and instead learn to apply rules when appropriate.

  44. Thanks for sharing these videos, it really benefits.
    Well done

  45. Ross Koh says

    Thank you Liz, may I know if spacing is required between initials? Thank you!

    • AS long as your answer is easy to read and it is written clearly, it’s fine. There are no fixed rules. Just don’t squash your letters together too much or make it difficult to read.

  46. Goodluck says

    Thank you Liz,
    Please I will like to know if punctuations after a title or an initial is looked into?

    • It is optional.

      • Noufal says

        Is it possible for me to write the Names or address in the worksheet ( question sheet) while hearing itself. Mean may be spelling the words right, so is it possible to do note it the same time?

        • You can write all over the question paper. The examiner never sees it. It is thrown away as soon as the test is completed. So, make all the notes you want on the question paper. This applies to reading, listening and writing.

  47. Elizabeth Adrah says

    Thanks so much. This is really useful


    Dear Liz,

    Thank you so much, that is easy to understand your lessons, It is helpful for me.



  49. Thanks liz .God bless you

  50. Hi Liz,
    Realy helpful for me, your pronunciation is very clear, I can understand easily.
    Thank you so much for this video.

  51. It has been a wonderful experience to go through the tips taught by Liz. She is doing awesome job. The most impressive part of her teaching is her originality. she herself writes on the white board and talks very enthusiastically. i just wish her all the success in future.

  52. Moyosore says

    Hey Liz, I just took a practice listening test where the answer was “CAFÉ” but I wrote “CAFE”.

    Am I right or wrong?

  53. Liz, thank you so much. You make ILETS listening easy to hit band 8 to 9.

  54. Kushaldeep Singh Sandhu says

    Thankyou Liz . Your tips have taught me a lot

  55. Pavan Kumar Raparthi says

    Hi Liz,

    I have a query, which one is correct in the below words




  56. Hi Liz,

    I just had a course for Ielts, they told me that now they do not take points or mark a question as wrong if you forget the capital letters. They are not part of the score.

    Is that correct?

    Thank you, your lessons are very helpful

    • IT is always best to write your answers for reading and listening using all capital letters.

  57. Thank you Liz for your videos. I have one question. You spelled Hilary with one L, will I be marked wrong if I spell HI(LL)ARY and MITCHE(LL)

    • If the spelling or name is not common, any differences will be highlighted for you or the name will be spelled completely. If it is a usual common name with usual spelling, it probably won’t be spelled.

  58. Charles says

    Thank you very much Liz. I improve each time I watch your lecture videos.

  59. You’re the best IELTS tutor.I’m proud of you.God bless you.

    • Ricardo says

      I fully agree, just I am a little disappointed not having found you before and just 2 weeks my IELTS test occurs, but hopefully it won’t be too late!!!!

  60. Akor Enemona John says

  61. Dear Liz,

    Should we write it with a dot following Mr or just Mr

    thanks once again for your devotion to teaching IELTS
    having watched your video on IELTS listening: English Names, may I know whether dots will be required to separate initil=als as in ‘JK Rowling’?

  71. Huong Nguyen says

    Thank you so much teacher Liz

  72. You are a great teacher of ielts. I watch all your YouTube videos and follow all tips which are working in my every module…..Thanks Liz

  73. Adetuase Christiana says

    Found this very useful, please I don’t mind have more of it to practice.
    Thanks Liz.

  74. Navpreet Kaur says

    Hi Liz,

    I have always followed your videos. One thing I want to know is that in IELTS listening “CV Hotspot” is considered as three words or two words. I had given the test on 1 st November, 2018, in which they asked to write answers in two words only. I wrote hotspot because I thought CV are two Alphabets. Is it correct or CV hotspot would have been correct.

    • I have never seen any instructions where they ask you to write two words. The instructions are always “two words and/or a number(numbers)”. The letters CV count for one word – you can see they are together.

  75. Sarah Ezekiel says

    Hello Liz
    Thank you so much for the test, I took the test and I got all correct. However I have a number of questions I would like to ask
    Firstly, I noticed you didn’t put a full stop at the end of the Mr, but you did put a full stop at the end of Dr.
    I did put a full stop at the end of mine (Mr. , Mrs.) is this in anyway wrong and would I be marked wrong in the real IELTS exam

    Secondly, I noticed the initials you wrote was J.k. with a small letter “k”. The second letter in the initials does it have to be a small letter or a capital letter. And I also noticed the full stop at the back of the “k” is it necessary for one to put the full stop?

    • In your test, you should be consistent with your dots after a title. You ether use them or don’t use them – choose one. That was actually a capital “K” – my writing isn’t clear.

  76. Thank you, Liz, you are a new ray of hope for me please keep on doing this thank you a lot. with a lot of good wishes.

  77. Vinayak Nilajkar says

    Hello Mam,
    The above video for names was done in 2014 where in tips you place emphasis on capital letters to be used careful. Now I see on your website updated in 2017, you have mentioned we can go with all capital letters for listening and reading. Kindly confirm about use of capital letters and on my observations.

    Vinayak N

  78. Tesfalegn Bogale says

    Thank you very much Liz!! I am learning a lot from your videos

  79. Mohamed Adam says

    You’re a stunning teacher…
    I would like to ask a question, can I capitalize all the letters of the name or only the first one, in case I’m using all capital letters in all my writing.

    Thanks in advance

    • If you use all capital letters, it means each letter is capital. They will ALL BE WRITTEN IN CAPITAL LETTERS. Avoid using all capital letters for the writing test.

      • Hi Liz,

        I see in your comment above you have mentioned to avoid using all capital letters for writing. However other comments below you have recommended to use all capital letters for writing and reading test. I am confused now.

  80. Shekhar Iyer says

    I got all correct.

  81. Onyinyechukwu Uloaku Okeahialam says

    It was very useful,Liz thanks so much.Please i need more lessons on this too

  82. Chinmay Panchal says

    Hi Liz,

    Thank you very much for your useful tips around all sections in lELTS. I apologize to ask this repeated question but just wanted to clarify regarding the use of capital letters v/s small letters. It is fine to right everything in small letters for both listening and reading section right as long as Names or Proper nouns start with capital letter?

  83. Waleed Arafa says

    Thank you so much for your marvelous site!
    But I’m very confused about using capital letters in listening and reading tests!
    at the top of this page you wrote: “UPDATE 2017: Capital letters are not marked in …..”
    does this mean ALL CAPS is NOT considered correct answer?

    • It means you don’t have to worry about capital letters. It is good to use all capital letters for your answer.

  84. Neha Menon says

    I wrote ‘Simmon Brambling’ instead of ‘Simon’. Will that be correct?

  85. Deep kamal says

    Thank you liz😊

  86. Thuy says

    I really love your lesson. Thank you so much!

  87. zasid says

    Hi Liz,

    Lovely lesson, absolutely bang on! and cracking

    is Dr correct way to write or is Dr. correct way or both are ok? Notice dot in the end
    same goes for Mr /Mr. or Mrs /Mrs. etc

    • There is no requirement to use a dot. It’s completely your personal choice.

  88. Mamata Vichare says

    Hi Ma’am Thank you for the tips. Just want to know, in the answer no. 4 is it correct to write J K Rowling instead of J k Rowling.
    Waiting for your reply

  89. SANTHI says

    Than you Mam for the names listening. If it is possible to send more listening i am happy to practice all the excerise.

  90. Dalia says

    Hi Liz,
    I am a bit confused, do you mean that i can write all my answers either they are names or not in capital letters?
    Also do you mean all the word in capital letters or only the first letter.
    thanks a lot!

  91. Hannah says

    Hey Liz,

    first of all thank you very much providing us with your amazing videos. Unfortunately, I have only one week to study so I am very depending on your videos.

    I have read in another comment that it is allowed to write words in capital letters. Now I am wondering if it´s going to be marked when I write the answers of the listening part in capital letters while the answers of the reading part not.

    Thank you for your help.


      • You mentioned that we must stay with our choice! Is that about listening answers or reading answers or both together? In other words, would it be wrong if I write ALL the answers for listening in capital but ALL the answers for reading in lowercase?

        • Why would you choose that? Write all your answers for listening and reading with capital letters.

          • Thanks for your reply.

            Just because it usually takes more time to write words in capital letters as we are not used to it.

            • For the listening test, you have 10 mins to transfer your answers – that is plenty of time using capital letters. For reading, using capital letters means you will be careful when you copy words from the passage to the answer sheet.

  92. Ezeoha Coleth says

  100. kingsley konyeha says

    Hi,I enjoyed the practise video for name. I would like to receive more video.

  101. Hi,
    That’s so kind of you to share all this info with us.
    How important is Hyphen and spacing in IELTS? I mean that once for example I wrote “keep fit” instead of “keep-fit” or I wrote “new town” instead of “Newtown” or similary, “door to door” instead of “door-to-door” and “bankroad” instead of “bank road”. I’m getting confused. Would you please help me with it? Thank you.

    • This is about learning compound nouns. Some are written as one word, some as two words and some using a hyphen. You need to learn the list. You can google this online.

  102. Thank you liz..
    I can see that in the video .. capital letters are not marked??
    What does it mean?
    you mean the capital letters at the beginning of the names??

  103. mohd yousif says

    thank you its really useful ,i loved.

  104. Hi Liz
    I have a question
    If I write J K Rowling instead of J.K.Rowling is it correct?Both are correct? or I have to use a full stop at initials?

  105. Hi Liz ,
    Thanks a lot for your help and your very useful website
    I’ve a Q
    in terms of listening section, if I wrote the half of the correct answer, will it be right?
    Ex : if the correct answer is( global temperature) and I write (temperature) , am I right ??
    also in the common names question , the people say their full name but spells only their first name and I wrote the first name is it right?
    Ex : in the audio he said ” Hi, I’m Kevin Smith , k-e-v-i-n ” so i wrote in the answer only Kevin …is it right??
    It is the first time for me to study for IELTS , hope to complete

    • Your answer is either 100% correct or it is wrong. There are no half points awarded in listening. If you are asked for a name, you must write the full name.

  106. I’m not sure if I should post it in here. Could you confirm if the questions/answers for listening comes in order as the record is played?

    • The questions will come in the order of their numbers. Question 1 first, question 2 second etc.

      • Thank you Liz,

        Well I actually wanted to know if the answers for the questions comes in the order as the recording is played.

        Eg. Answer for question 1 comes in the first part of the recording and answer for the last question of section comes in the last part of the recording.

    Hello Mam…. your way of teaching is awesome and your voice is melodious….i daily watch your lessons…Mam i have a problem in reading…how can I improve my reading?

  115. martina says

    Do i have to write the full stops when writing for example J.K: ? If yes, shoul I write them in space ?

  116. I have a question. When IELTS spell the name, if they say “wt”, sometimes it is spelled “wt”, but can be “tt”. How can I tell the difference ?

    • “w” is pronounced “double you”. So, “WT” is pronounced “double you tee”. But “TT” is pronounced “double tee”. Can you see the difference?

    Is it correct to write only JK instead of J.K.

    • Sure. You don’t need to use dots. I use them sometimes just to make it easier to read.
