Make sure you practice listening to English and Australian accents. Even though this is an international test, it was made by the British Council.

Check where the questions are. Maybe the questions are on the back of the paper.

If you miss a question during the listening test, move on.

Technical or academic words are not usually paraphrased.

30 Minutes

Write answers on the question paper while you listen. When the test ends get 10 minutes to copy answers onto the answer. Use a pencil for this.

Check if the headphones are working if the test center has headphones.

Write the words you hear in the test so it is easier to answer questions. The question will have different wording.

Watch out for word limit. If you are asked to complete a sentence using two words and the answer is ‘study English’, then ‘learning how to speak English’ would be the wrong answer.

海外旅行に行って英会話が出来ると旅行が楽しくなります。英語圏ばかりではないけれど、 フランス語もイタリア語も似ている単語があるし、少しでも会話ができると外国人とコミュニケーションがとれます。街の中の広告とか、お店の看板を読むことができると、街を歩く時でも迷わずに済みますし、行動範囲も広がります。
