The IELTS Speaking test video

Many people feel insecure about the IELTS Speaking test, they consider it the hardest part of IELTS. I think that the reason is being face-to-face with the examiner; the intense interaction is what scares the students.

And guess what, as I was thinking “If only I could show them what it’s really like, maybe they wouldn’t be so frightened anymore” – I found this great video on YouTube which shows what a real IELTS speaking test is like.

So here it is, enjoy and relax – it’s not that bad!

Thanks to http://www.ipassielts.com for the video – great job, guys!

The IELTS test score – an important change

As you all know, the IELTS score consists of 4 parts which are the scores for the Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking modules. Until now you could get half scores in the Listening and Reading tests, but for the Writing and Speaking you could only get whole bands (such as 6 or 7, but never a 6.5).

From 1 July 2007, as the IELTS official site www.ielts.org announced, the Writing and Speaking tests will also be graded using half-scores, just like the Reading and Listening. The reason for this change is to give students more accurate information on their skills. They also mentioned that students shouldn’t change a thing in the way they study.

Well, a change like that demands further research – I am going to look for more information about this and once I learn more – I promise to share 🙂
