Understanding IELTS : Understanding IELTS What is IELTS? Are there other English Language testing systems? Why IELTS? What else? I want to become a doctor, what should I take? I want to live and work in an English speaking country, which line of study is best? IELTS is an International English Language Testing System. Yes, there are and depending on your interests, tests like TOEFL, TOEIC, BEC, FCE and many others exist for choice. IELTS is recognized by every English speaking country as a test of English proficiency and although other tests are similar, they may have a particular focus, for example, TOEFL is focused on North America. IELTS has the option of taking the learner in a specific direction; It has an academic focus and it has a general focus. Academic. (Professional) General.

IELTS Scores and Tests : IELTS Scores and Tests Where can I take the IELTS Test? Is the IELTS test easy and what is the pass score? What are the score bands and can you give some examples? There is an IELTS test centre in over 125 countries with test dates averaging 50 per year in over 500 locations. There is no pass score with IELTS; remember IELTS is a test of English proficiency so depending of the pass score required by the immigration or the employer or University, you must work to that score. The score bands are in the chart on the next slide. Take time to review them. For major English speaking countries 6.5 is the score required for immigration purposes, however, entry to a university may require a higher score, for example Oxford University requires a score of 7.0.

IELTS Test Modules : IELTS Test Modules Listening All candidates must complete four Modules - Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking - to obtain a band score, which is shown on the IELTS Test Report Form (TRF). All candidates take the same Listening and Speaking Modules, while the Reading and Writing Modules differ depending on whether the candidate is taking the  Academic  or  General Training  Versions of the Test. The speaking test contains three sections. The first section takes the form of an interview during which candidates may be asked about their hobbies, interests, reasons for taking IELTS exam as well as other general topics such as clothing, free time, computers and the internet or family. In the second section candidates are given a topic card and then have one minute to prepare after which they must speak about the given topic. The third section involves a discussion between the examiner and the candidate, generally on questions relating to the theme which they have already spoken about in part 2. This last section is more abstract, and is usually considered the most difficult. The module comprises four sections of increasing difficulty. Each section, which can be either a monologue or dialogue, begins with a short introduction telling the candidates about the situation and the speakers. Then they have some time to look through questions. The first three sections have a break in the middle allowing candidates to look at the remaining questions. Each section is heard only once.
