IELTS

IELTS is designed to test the language ability of people who want to study or work where English is used as the language of communication. Over 3 million tests are taken each year.

Test Format

IELTS consists of 2 variants : General training and Academic, each containing four modules i.e. Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. The difference in the two lies in terms of reading and writing. Speaking and Listening tests are the same for both.

Choose this if you wish to study at undergraduate or postgraduate levels, or if, you are seeking professional registration, e.g. doctors and nurses.

We have taught a large number of candidates and helped them accomplish their dream of settling abroad.

Choose this if you wish to migrate to an English-speaking country, (e.g. Australia, Canada, New Zealand, UK) or if you wish to train or study at below degree level. Find out what’s in the IELTS General Training module.

PART 2 You listen to a monologue set in an everyday social situation, e.g. a speech about local facilities or a talk about the arrangements for meals during a conference.

PART 3 You listen to a conversation between up to four people set in an educational or training context, e.g. a university tutor and a student discussing an assignment, or a group of students planning a research project.

PART 4 You listen to a monologue on an academic subject, e.g. a university lecture.

Section 3

  • Two-way discussion.
