Hi everyone, June 17th, 2017.
IELTS Academic.
Vancouver, Canada.
Section 1
A phone call between a man and a woman. The woman is seeking information to find out what is the closest library to where she and her family just moved to. She inquires about the opening and closing times, what type of clubs and amenities are available for her children and also what the library has to offer for people of her age.
Section 2
A report on the background information on the fairy tern bird. Questions are in relation to the type of habitat it lives in, it’s predators and what is causing the number of this type of bird to decrease.
Section 3
A woman is getting a personal shopper. What changes does the personal shopper make? What did the woman gain from the personal shopper?
Section 4
Match the description to the name of the big retail stores given, by hearing what they have to offer to their customers.
Task 1:
2 bar charts based on the Australian hotels for one month in 2009. One shows the cost per night for a room and the other shows the percentage of rooms that were occupied during this month. You are asked to explain the bar chat.
Task 2:
All large companies should provide sports and social facilities to the local community. To what extent do you agree or disagree? Discuss and explain your idea’s and reasons.
My listening is not until later this afternoon and I cannot remember the reading all too well as it was one of the first parts of the assessment. I just vaguely remember it was in relation to magnetic therapy and scientific studies.
I hope this helps someone out there. I know that this website really helped me prepare for my IELTS. Thank you very much for creating this website, Atul.
