IELTS Listening Question Types Form Filling

Form Filling is a type of question that is often tested in the IELTS listening test. It can appear in any of the four listening sections. The basic question type is Form Filling or Table Completion. This type of question requires candidates to fill in information on a form based on what they have heard. The information is usually presented in a logical order or in a specific format, and understanding these formats will help candidates to solve the questions correctly.

There are 15 exercises in this post, and the content is selected from various dialogues in daily life scenes abroad, such as hotel reservations, bank account opening, application for library cards, application for various training courses, etc. The purpose is to help candidates understand and become familiar with the question types. This post improves students’ practical listening ability through daily conversations.

Filling in the blanks is an exercise that combines listening and writing. This unit helps students improve the accuracy of capturing information and enhance their ability to take notes quickly by filling in various forms.

Candidates are advised to carefully read the questions and sentences in the form before listening, and develop the habit of carefully reviewing questions. Learn to look horizontally and vertically at the existing information on the chart and the information that needs to be filled. Learn by reading:

  1. What are the topics that will be listened to?
  2. How much do you know about this topic?
  3. What information did you get from the form?

Know what you want before listening, so that you can find the required information in a targeted manner during the listening process, and accurately grasp the information to be recorded and fill it in the correct column.

After the recording starts to play, the examinee should follow the content of the listening. When you hear the information to be filled in, such as person’s name, phone number, place name, time, etc., you should quickly and silently read it, that is, repeat the information you hear, to help yourself quickly write down the information. Repetition is one of the effective ways to help memory. When capturing information, digital information such as phone numbers, time, etc. can be recorded in Arabic numerals, and months, professional names, etc. should be recorded in some common abbreviated forms as much as possible, which can speed up the recording speed. When you have time to transcribe the answer at the end, change the abbreviation to full spelling.
