IELTS General Training

Migrate to a country where English is spoken with the world's most trusted test of English language.

Choose the IELTS General Training test if you wish to migrate to a country where English is spoken, (e.g. Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and UK) or if you wish to train or study at below degree level.

In IELTS, there are four parts: Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. The Speaking and Listening tests are the same in both the Academic and the General Training tests, but the Reading and Writing tests are different.

This part has four parts, with ten questions in each part.

Parts 1 and 2 deal with everyday, social situations. There is a conversation between two speakers in Part 1 (for example, a conversation about travel arrangements). Only one person speaks in Part 2 (for example, a speech about local facilities).

Parts 3 and 4 deal with educational and training situations. In Part 3 there is a conversation between two main speakers (for example, two university students in discussion, perhaps guided by a tutor). In Part 4 only one person speaks on an academic subject.

You will hear the recordings once only. Different accents, including British, Australian, New Zealand and North American, are used.

Time allowed:  30 minutes 

Number of parts: 4

Number of questions: 40

Marking: Each correct answer receives 1 mark. Your final score is given as a band score in whole or half bands, e.g. 5.5 or 7.0.
