FCE Listening Part 4 Tips

This is what I believe is the best technique to follow for this part of the exam:

1. Ignoring the a,b,c options, read all the questions and underline the key words.

2. The first time you listen, avoid ‘distractors’ (words deliberately trying to make you choose the wrong answer) by covering the a,b,c options. DO NOT LOOK AT THEM.

3. Decide what you think is the answer during the first time you listen. STILL DO NOT LOOK AT THE OPTIONS.

4. Before the recording begins the second time. Look at the a,b,c options and see if one answer matches what you’ve written.

5. Confirm your answer the second time you listen.

Remember you can watch me using this technique with real practice examples from sample papers in the video above.
