In the IELTS listening test, there are often test questions that ask candidates to spell names of people or places. This requires candidates not only to be very familiar with the 26 letters of English, but also to master their accurate pronunciation. If your own pronunciation is not accurate, it will affect the accuracy of listening. For example, the letter “G” in “Gill” is often misheard by candidates as “J”, and the letter “W” is often misheard by candidates as “double”.
In the IELTS listening test, information related to numbers often appears, such as phone numbers, time, date, etc., and candidates are required to grasp and write down these information as quickly as possible.
This post to train people’s names, place names, numbers and information related to numbers through daily dialogues and reports. The purpose is:
- Help candidates to be familiar with common names of people, places, numbers and information related to numbers in daily life, and be able to accurately spell out names of people and places in actual communication, and record numbers and related information.
- Cultivate candidates’ ability to listen and memorize through letter spelling and number exercises, and change the practice of only listening but not writing. Candidates are advised to repeat or silently read the names of people, places and numbers during the practice of this unit. This can deepen the impression and help to remember the relevant information accurately.
