Language level

Intermediate: B1


I heard that we can write all the answers in CAPITAL LETTERS in the listening test . Is it correct ?

Hi barun.9yk,

Yes, that is correct. Answers for the listening paper can be written in capital letters or lower case.

You can find advice on the listening paper here. You'll also find a lot of other advice, information and practice materials on that site, which is the British Council's main site for IELTS candidates.


Best wishes,

Hello Manickavignesh,

I'd suggest you consult TakeIELTS (for example, the Listening test advice page), which has this kind of information, plus lots of useful advice and even some free practice materials.

All the best,

Very good tips for listening, Thanks.

I like thanks

I have problems with spelling, I do a lot of spelling mistakes, even if I learn those words later hesitate about it is spelling and anyway make it. What can I do in order to improve my spelling ? what can help me ? Thank you beforehand for your respond.

Hello llkhomjon,

I always wrote words that were difficult to spell a dozen times in a row to learn them, but everyone is different. In addition, there are lots of different ideas about how to improve your spelling. Some methods will probably work better than others for you, so I'd suggest you do a little bit of research (e.g. you could search for 'improve spelling'). Look at three or four pages with ideas and then try some of those ideas. When you find one or two that seem to work better than others, use them!

Good luck!

All the best,

I would like to know why I can't access to any IELTS mock listening. This week I was doing the IELTS mock listening: American Literature and now I can't find it, nor the other three mocks in any website.
