OET Listening Component

As well as listening out for word stress, intonation and specific vocabulary, you will need to familiarise  yourself with the 12 occupations listed in the OET. These are:

Dentistry Pharmacy
 Dietetics  Physiotherapy
 Medicine  Podiatry
 Nursing  Radiography
 Occupational Therapy  Speech Pathology
 Optometry  Veterinary Science

This is important because not only do you need to be aware of subject matter –disease, illness, ailment, procedure etc. you must acquire some basic knowledge of the topics most likely to be discussed. The more familiar you are with any given subject matter, the higher the chance you will recognise occupation specific terminology.

At the beginning of every listening test Part A, they will tell you who will be involved in the discussion. Acquiring some basic knowledge of each occupation simply by reading a page or two on each, will give you not only the confidence you need but will allow you to anticipate what is coming. Remember that at no time are you tested on medical terminology, but being as comfortable and familiar with a topic as possible will certainly be place you in the best possible position.
