ISE III Trinity Listening Exams – Teachers Edition


ISE III Independent Listening Task Instructions



  • Practise listening to recorded English — you are tested on listening to recordings, so watch films and television in English, listen to English podcasts or news programmes, watch English videos on the internet and practise in and out of study time.
  • Practise taking notes while you listen — try to only write the most important information like key ideas, opinions and facts.
  • Listen to discussions and speeches where the content is abstract and implied rather than factual.


  • Don’t try to write down everything you hear — you don’t need 100% of the information.
