IELTS

IELTS stands for International English Language Testing System is one of the most widely recognised tests of English currently used throughout the world. Students can use an IELTS score to:

  • Gain entry to study at universities abroad
  • Prove their current level of English
  • Apply for certain occupations or to work in a native English speaking country
  • Help when immigrating to other countries

There are two modules for the IELTS test, which are: The General Module & The Academic Module. Both modules are divided into four sections including:

  • Listening
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Speaking

Listening – approx. 30 min

The listening module has 40 questions and is exactly the same test for both modules. It has 4 sections which get progressively more difficult as the test continues. Test candidates only have one opportunity to listen to the listening excerpts and must answer a variety of different questions based on what they hear.
