IELTS exam in Nigeria – November 2009 (Academic Module)

IELTS test in Lagos, Nigeria was described by O., who remembered the following topics and questions. Many thanks, O.!

Listening test

Section 1: There was a discussion between a man who wanted to rent an apartment and a property agent.

Section 2: This section was a monologue, a man gave a speech about the type of car one can buy, easy to maintain and how to maintain it, type of fuel to use and other related details. It was difficult for me to understand. Section 4 was usually the difficult one, but this time it wasn’t the case. I think it’s because of Australian accent which I am not used to.

Section 3: Two students were conducting a research about their town.

Section 4: Don’t remember.
