What is the IELTS Test?

IELTS = International English Language Testing System. It is the world’s biggest English language test with test centres in most countries. This means it is a test which accepts international English, not only British English. 

There are four parts to the IELTS test:

  • IELTS Speaking – a face to face informal test with an examiner (via video call is also available for the computer based test) which lasts between 11 and 14 mins and is made up of 3 parts. All IELTS candidates take the same test.
  • IELTS Listening – a 30 minute audio recording with 40 questions. All IELTS candidates take the same test.
  • IELTS Reading – 3 reading passages with 40 questions which lasts for 1 hour. This test is divided into Academic and General Training papers.
  • IELTS Writing – this is divided into task 1 and task 2. Task 1 Academic is a short report of a chart, graph, map table etc. Task 1 GT is a letter. Task 2 Academic & GT is a formal essay. IELTS writing lasts for 1 hour in total.
