How to prepare for your IELTS Exam

How to prepare for your IELTS Exam

  • By Cristina

IELTS evaluates your English level in four ways: it assesses your speaking, listening, writing and reading and determines your ability to communicate with employers, professors, any individuals or professionals in an English speaking country such as United Kingdom.

By following the three steps below you will be better prepared for your IELTS test and you will be able to receive the results that you desire.

The first step is to improve your English

It takes a lot of energy and time to learn a language and the best way to can enhance your learning is to take an English language course. Having a tutor that can guide you and help you with the different sections of the IELTS (writing, reading, listening and speaking) is essential. A teacher can provide you with the feedback that you need in order to perform better on a particular assignment. You will need to use all the resources available to improve your English. Reading books, watching movies or YouTube IELTS tutorials, practising tests, doing grammar exercises, listening to radio podcasts or songs or similar activities are proven to contribute greatly to your high IELTS score.

The second step is to familiarise yourself with the rules and the test format

Remember there are two versions of the IELTS test: IELTS Academic used for people who want to study at higher education level or work in professional organisations in an English speaking country and General Training designed for individuals who want to study at below degree level, work in an English speaking country or emigrate to countries part of the Commonwealth. Please keep in mind that the Reading and the Writing parts are different for both exams but the Listening and Speaking sections are the same. Check the British Council website for any useful information. Be aware of the IELTS test band scores and do not believe all the rumours about the test, instead get the facts.

The third step is to practise IELTS tests that are available for you to use after you pay for the exam. Apart from that you can find various IELTS materials on the British Council website or from numerous publishers.

Alternatively you may consider taking our IELTS preparation course. A preparation course can be very useful in many ways such as improving your band score by practising the tasks that are required for the test.
