IELTS Listening Practice - Transportation Museum

Posted by on April 11, 2014

Grow your IELTS and TOEFL listening comprehension skills by listening to the audio portions below and then completing the answers. We recommend listening to the audio once and then trying to answer the questions. If you can't answer all the questions then listen to the audio a second time. Then, check your comprehension by reading the script. Look for words, phrasal verbs and grammar patterns that you don't know or don't understand. Write these words and phrases down and look them up in a good dictionary.


When you are satisfied with your performance check out some of our other Listening Comprehension Exercises.
