1. Copy one handout for each individual student.
2. Put the students into pairs, and give out the handouts one between two (give out the remaining sheets after the activity to ensure better pair work).
3. Focus students' attentions on the instructions in part A. The learners have to match eight types of IELTS Listening and Reading question types with the example instruction typical for that question type. If necessary, explain the importance of good exam technique through being more aware of the types of questions in IELTS, and the kind of sub-skills required to answer such questions.
4. When the the learners have matched the pairs together, check their responses and take any questions they may have.
5. Next, move on to part B. Explain now that the learners should match the types of question with the task advice for each in the table. Emphasise that this part of the activity is more open-ended, and that learners should feel free to discuss their views on how best to approach these questions. However, do state that there is a correct set of answers for this section.
6. Finally, make sure now every student has a copy of the sheet and get feedback from the learners. Clarify any confusion or misunderstanding over the task advice, and encourage learners to memorise the techniques and sub-skills they should use for each question type.
