IELTS exams in India and Denmark – November 2009 (Academic Module)

IELTS test in Bangalor, India was described by V., whose good memory and kindness made this update possible. Thank you V.! Later on I found out from C. that in Denmark they had the exact same topics in the Listening, Reading and Writing tests.

Listening test

Section 1: A conversation between 2 people about a damaged bicycle and garden tools.
Section 2: A visit to a biscuit museum.
Section 3: Orientation program for University students.
Section 4: Dangers of windmills to birds.

Reading test

Passage 1: About road transport and its trends in Europe.
Passage 2: Australian Parrots.
Passage 3: About an old manuscript.

Note: Both students said that all the passages were long and the language was quite difficult to understand.
