  • What's up guys! So if you like many English  learners out there are interested in applying to a  

  • university or getting a job in an English-speaking  country then oftentimes it is not enough to simply  

  • state on your resume that you are an intermediate  or advanced speaker of English you're going to  

  • actually need to certify your level of English and  this is exactly what the IELTS exam does for you  

  • it accurately assesses the test taker's ability to  speak in English and it also tests on all four of  

  • the key areas of the language and these of course  are reading, writing, speaking and listening

  • Now if you're like most learners out there then  you probably think studying for a test like this  

  • sounds pretty boring, right? But today we're  gonna make it a ton of fun we're gonna focus  

  • on the listening part of the exam with some  scenes from the tv series Friends but before  

  • we get into that there's some things that you  should probably know about the exam so at the  

  • listening section of the IELTS exam you will be

  • tested with four specific types of recordings and you will have to answer 40 different questions  what this means of course is that you can train  

  • your listening to improve your comprehension for  those four specific types of recordings. However,  

  • in my opinion, when you do this you're simply  fine-tuning your skills to be able to respond  

  • to and be prepared for those types of recordings  however first you're going to need to work on kind  

  • of the fundamental base of your listening which  the best way to do this is by constant exposure  

  • to the language with that said all that we  do on this channel is to help you to improve  

  • your English comprehension and understand your  favorite series movies and natives in real life

  • the problem here is that if you use subtitles it  can kind of turn more into a reading exercise and  

  • of course you won't have this luxury on the actual  IELTS exam but it can be a good bridge from taking  

  • you from the point of not being able to understand  anything to later being able to understand even
