The Listening test takes around 30 minutes. Each Listening test includes four sections with 40 questions. The Listening test is recorded on a CD and is played ONCE only. The Listening test is the same for both Academic and General Training tests.
There are four sections:
Section 2 is a monologue set in an everyday social context (e.g. a speech about local families).
Section 3 is a conversation between up to four people set in an educational or training context (e.g. a university tutor and student discussing an assignment).
Section 4 is a monologue on an academic subject (e.g. a university lecture).
