The Listening test consists of 40 questions to be answered in 30 minutes. Test takers will listen to four recorded test sections and answer the accompanying questions. Each recording is heard only once.

The 4 sections of the Listening Section are as follows

Section 1 is a conversation between two people set in an everyday social context (e.g. a conversation in an employment agency).

Secion 2 is a monologue set in everyday social context (e.g. a speech about a tourist site).

Section 3 is a conversation set in an educational or training context between two main speakers (for example, discussion between two university student’s, perhaps guided by a tutor).

Section 4 is a monologue set in an educational or training context.
