Improve your listening skills with BBC podcasts!

Make good use of the BBC website, where you can listen to lots of interesting radio programmes and podcasts on a wide range of diverse topics very similar to the ones in Part 4 of the IELTS Listening test.

If you don’t have much time to practice, try out the excellent 6-minute English episodes where you can listen to two people discussing a variety of subjects - some more serious than others! During the conversation they also explain the meaning of less common words so it’s a great way of increasing your range of vocabulary too!

In the latest episode, Rob and Alice discuss what is at the centre of the earth’s core. Why not give it a listen and see if you can answer this question:

How big is the Earth’s inner core? Is it the size of…

A: the moon
B: the planet Jupiter
C: the planet Mars
