IELI Placement Test

Listening Comprehension

Time: 30 minutes   Number of questions: 30

This part of the test has two types of questions. First, you will hear short conversations between two people. After each conversation, you will answer multiple-choice questions about what you heard the speakers say.

For example, you hear:

Woman: "Pardon me, can you tell me where I can buy some stamps?"
Man: Yes. You need to go to the post office in the administration building. It’s on the first floor.
Woman: Great! Thank you for your help.
Man: You're welcome.

You see:

What does the woman need help with?
A. Finding money to buy stamps.
B. Learning the time the administration building opens.
C. Meeting the man to take her to the post office.
D. Finding the place to buy stamps.

Choice D is the correct answer. You should mark D on the answer sheet because it is the correct answer.

Second, you will hear two lectures that are five minutes each. While you listen to the lecture, you will answer several multiple-choice questions.
