Listening Practice: Gap Fill exercise

One of the questions asked in the IELTS exam for listening test is a gap-fill exercise in which you are supposed to answer in NO MORE THAN THREE WORDS. There is a clear instruction regarding this. So, always read the instructions carefully and notice what is the word limit for answers.

When you’re doing a gap fill exercise, it is quite essential that you read the summary quickly before the audio begins. Quickly go through the summary for the gap-fill exercise and try to predict the answer. There may be some occasions when you may clearly guess the answer from the other words around the gap.

It is also recommended that you underline some of the keywords in the text to help you find the answer when you hear the audio.
