IELTS Preparation Programme

IELTS or International English Language Testing System is a standardized test of the English language and covers four skills including listening, reading, speaking, and writing. It is designed to assess the language ability of candidates who need to study or work where English is the language of communication.

There are two types of IELTS test:

  • General Training: The IELTS General Training is for those who are going to be living and/or studying (secondary education) in a primarily English speaking country. It tests general skills a person would need to survive in the academic or working context. The general IELTS test is a requirement for the following countries: Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the UK.
  • Academic: This test is for those who are trying to get into an institute of higher education or registering for a professional English speaking environment. It assesses key features of the academic language and tests if the student is ready to study/train in English.

The duration of the test is less than 3 hours and assesses the test-takers abilities in listening, reading, writing and speaking.

      3. Writing (60 minutes – 2 questions)

There are two writing tasks and BOTH must be completed.

  • Task 1 – you will be presented with a graph, table, chart or diagram and asked to describe, summarize or explain the information in your own words. You may be asked to describe and explain data, describe the stages of a process, how something works or describe an object or event.
  • Task 2 – you will be asked to write an essay in response to a point of view, argument or problem. Responses to both tasks must be in a formal style.

      4. Speaking (11-14 minutes)

There are three parts to the test and each part fulfills a specific function in terms of interaction pattern.

  • Part 1 – the examiner will ask you general questions about yourself and a range of familiar topics, such as home, family, work, studies and interests. This part lasts between four and five minutes.
  • Part 2 – you will be given a card which asks you to talk about a particular topic. You will have one minute to prepare before speaking for up to two minutes. The examiner will then ask one or two questions on the same topic.
  • Part 3 – you will be asked further questions about the topic in Part 2. These will give you the opportunity to discuss more abstract ideas and issues. This part of the test lasts between four and five minutes.
