WHAT IS IT?
The International English Language Testing System is an international standardized test of English language proficiency for non-native English language speakers.
There are two types of IELTS exam, one is Academic and the other is General Training.
The format of the test is composed of four main areas.
Listening– You listen to four different recording of native English speakers and then afterwards you have to answer a series of questions.
Reading– The reading section tests on your reading skills from reading for main ideas to understanding the writer’s opinions and purpose. This is 40 questions.
Writing– In the writing section, you will be presented with diagram, chart, graph and then asked to describe it in detail. You will also be asked to write an essay in response to a point of view or argument.
Speaking– The speaking section will assess how well you speak based on being asked a variety of questions. Some students have shared that this is often the most difficult part for them.
