The IELTS incorporates the following features:

  • A variety of accents and writing styles presented in text materials in order to minimise linguistic bias.
  • IELTS tests the ability to listen, read, write and speak in English.
  • Band scores used for each language sub-skill (Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking). The Band Scale ranges from 0 ("Did not attempt the test") to 9 ("Expert User").
  • The speaking module – a key component of IELTS. This is conducted in the form of a one-to-one interview with an examiner. The examiner assesses the candidate as he or she is speaking, but the speaking session is also recorded for monitoring as well as re-marking in case of an appeal against the banding given.
  • IELTS is developed with input from item writers from around the world. Teams are located in the USA, Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and other English speaking nations.

A tutor can help with a study plan. They can tell you where you need to improve and make sure that all parts of the test are covered. You will get instant feedback on how to improve as well.Tests are good to use so you are used to the format of the test. To be honest an all round approach is the best.  Visit http://skype-englishschool.com/ for more information.
