Preparing for the IELTS Listening Test needs lots of practice. I had a pretty hard time finding enough for my students. In the end I found a brilliant set buried on ebay which was not the first place I would have looked for ESL materials. IELTS Tutorials have a great little ebay shop where you can download everything you need instantly for fast IELTS preparation and they are not expensive at $9.99 (current price as I write) for the lot (especially considering how much you will save on hours of lessons by doing it yourself!). The Audio Listening Test includes:
Audio materials in different formats (monologues, dialogues with 2 speakers, dialogues with 3 and more speakers)
Tape scripts for the audio materials
Training Questions to the audio texts
Answer keys to all training questions
A variety of training audio materials in different English language accents.
I think other Advanced students would benefit from these during their course too. Unlike CPE and ECPE Prep materials I have found that IELTS materials offer a lot more explanation and practical advice on how to tackle the test.
