IELTS Listening section 1
The very first thing to do for the beginner is to get used to the rhythm and melody of English, which is significantly different from Thai. Go to the sites given below and put in the earbuds or just leave the speaker on. You don’t have to pay attention to what you’re listening all the time. Just let the rhythm and melody of English sink in.

As for IELTS examination, there are 4 sections in the Listening Skill test. As you may guess, it starts off with the easiest one, which generally comprises 10 items about general conversation on general topics. By ‘general’ I mean something you expect to hear in everyday context, for instance: traveling schedule, booking accommodation, delivery service, and study class information.
For this first section, pay special attention to the followings :
1. Spelling – be prepared to write down a group of letters spell out by the speakers. It’s usually a specific name such as a person’s name, a city, or a university.
2. Numbers – this may come in form of room number, address number, bus number, postcode, product code, goods price, or service fees.
3. Date and time – Make sure you can ‘decode’ the date format and time format quickly and correctly. Find out how to read out the dates and times in English.

4. Place – Make sure you know whether the speaker is referring to a street, a city, a country, or a type of accommodation. The best trick is to identify them by using the preposition.
You’ll have enough time to read the questions before the audio starts. So read the questions carefully and you’ll know what you are looking for. Watch out for the trick lines. Make sure you get the right answers. Here are some links to sample of IELTS Listening test.

Speaking part 1: Introduction and interview
IELTS interview session lasts for approximately 15 – 20 minutes. Don’t worry! I guarantee that it’s much less dreadful than a job interview, or a university admission interview for that matter. The key point is not about the validity of the answers but it’s about the accordance of the answers to the questions/topics and the continuity of the conversation.
The interview usually begins with a self introduction. This is not limited to family and education records. You can talk about your personality, your hobbies, or, even better, about the purpose of taking the IELTS exam.
Then the interviewer will ask you a series of questions concerning general information of yourself such as accommodation type, neighborhood, your school/university, best friends, special interests, or even your favorite foods. I know it’s like one in a hundred probability to get these topics but it’s okay to be prepared. May be you are the lucky one. Here is a link to the list of potential topics for IELTS Speaking test part 1.
