Vigeo IELTS Training Program
IELTS is the International English Language Testing System. It measures ability to communicate in English across all four language skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking – for people who intend to study or work where English is the language of communication.
Since 1989, IELTS has been proven and trusted worldwide to provide a secure, global, authentic and customer-focused test which measures true to life ability to communicate in English. Over 4700 educational institutions, government agencies and professional organisations around the world recognise IELTS scores as a trusted and valid indicator of ability to communicate in English.
More than 700,000 people a year are now using IELTS to open doors throughout the English-speaking world and beyond. The test is taken every year across 120 countries, and is one of the fastest growing English language tests in the world, and sets the standard in integrity, research and innovation.
IELTS Test Structure
Total Test Time
2 hours 45 minutes
The first three modules - Listening, Reading and Writing - must be completed in one day. The Speaking Module may be taken, at the discretion of the test centre, in the period seven days before or after the other Modules.
The tests are designed to cover the full range of ability from non-user to expert user.
Academic or General Training
IELTS is available in two formats – Academic and General Training.
The Academic Reading and Writing Modules assess whether a candidate is ready to study or train in the medium of English at an undergraduate or postgraduate level. Admission to undergraduate and postgraduate courses is based on the results of these Modules.
The General Training Reading and Writing Modules are not designed to test the full range of formal language skills required for academic purposes, but emphasize basic survival skills in a broad social and educational context.
General Training is suitable for candidates who are going to English speaking countries to complete their secondary education, to undertake work experience or training programs not at degree level, or for immigration purposes to Australia, Canada and New Zealand.
It is the responsibility of the candidate to inform the test centre whether they wish to take the Academic or General Training Modules. Centers are not responsible for providing this information. The General Training module is not offered at all test administrations.
Preparing for the IELTS Test
Preparation for the test will depend on the amount of time you have available and your personal preferences for how to prepare. At a minimum, before you take the IELTS Test, you should know what to expect from the test, including the administrative procedures, types of questions and directions, the approximate number of questions, and the amount of time for each section. The administrative procedures include registration, date, time, test center location, cost, score reporting procedures, and availability of special testing arrangements. Remember—you can not do very well on the test without preparing yourself answering every question in each section of the test correctly. Everyone—even the most practiced and confident of writers—should spend some time preparing for the writing section before arriving at the test center. Same thing is true about the listening, reading and speaking sections. It is important to review the skills measured, how the section is scored, scoring guides and score level descriptions, sample topics, scored sample essay responses, and reader commentary.
