Anyone done IELTS recently?

Recommended Posts

Again, can people do that? I'd love to ask for the recording, because I'm having my speaking module remarked.

 

This was the response I got today when requesting the recording from the listening test.

 

Dear Donavan,

 

 

Thank you for your enquiry.

 

 

We cannot supply a recording of your speaking test. This is due to the secure nature of the IELTS test.

 

 

For further assistance, please contact the test centre where you originally took the test.

Hi Ascended Alteran I did the test on saturday in Dublin. IIRC the garden was at the site of an old volcano and the students could go to Summer school to do study skills. That's what I put anyway could be wrong but I think I was correct!!!!!!!

Thanks mate. Guess I got one of them wrong as I wrote Management skills (a pure guess as I didn't hear what the narrator said before "skills").

Had my speaking part this morning! It went really quickly! It was based around music and technology so I was able to babble on for long enough. The examiner really unnerved me though as she didn't really make much I contact and when I was speaking she looked towards my right ear! Wish we got the results starlight away!!!

i hope it's the person who was there he seemed to like me and I bet my recording sounded naff afterwards! Though I slagged off Australia not having a history and Londoners being rude so not holding my breath!!

I know! Such a crap day! The waiting and the rude staff! There was 69 people doing the test so everything was very slow

 

I need to get 8 in all 4 so preparing just in case! It's ok though, I have 5 more weeks for skills assessment to be done so have time to redo it if need be

Hey froggles

 

reading is all about technique! I actually found that reading the question then looking for answer was easier than reading passage then the question! Look at paragraphs and get a feel what each one is saying the key messages.

listening do some practice using audio it will help you get used to concentrating the last section is harder than first bits..

writing just remember start middle end! Start is paraphrasing question middle covers what you said you were going to talk about and end you just summarise what you said. Look through past topics to get a feel of the subjects that come up.

speaking test is quite funny if your are a native speaker just relax look at past topics they are not tested your knowledge of subject it's all about fluency and confidence etc.

google ielts Simon it's a useful website!

I get my results on 9th so hoping all of the above advice has helped!!!

Hi thanks for the advise there really appreciate it! Ah good luck with the results.... what do you need to get ?

I will get stuck into some revision over the next few days so will definitely check out the link. I think I've got enough points without IELTS but it would be nice to get extra just in case my skills assessment gets confusing.
