Road to IELTS
Road to IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is your best possible online preparation and practice resource for IELTS. This comprehensive and up-to-date service has over 300 interactive activities, hints and tips on question types as well as downloadable practice tests. And now you can practice Computer-Delivered IELTS too! Academic and General Training modules are available.
Road to IELTS is organised by skill. There is no set learning path. Teachers or learners can choose the order in which they tackle the four key resources within each skill area:
- Starting out: an eBook introducing each paper and explaining task types.
- Advice and tutorial videos: experts explain the best way to prepare for IELTS.
- Practice zone: candidates practise tackling the various question types, pick up exam tips and familiarise themselves with the exam format.
- Test practice: candidates simulate the test experience with three full mock tests in
each of the Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking Part 2 papers.
IELTS has two versions – academic and general training. All candidates take the same listening and speaking tests but different reading and writing tests. The general training test focuses on basic survival skills in broad social and workplace contexts. It is typically for those who are going to English-speaking countries to do secondary education, work experience or training programs.
The academic test is for those who want to study or train in an English-speaking university or Institutions of Higher and Further Education. Admission to undergraduate and postgraduate courses is based on the results of the academic test. Please contact the organisation or institution to which you are applying to find out what they require:
