Sydney 2. Contents Unit 1: For the student: Answers and tapescripts Part 1: About the IELTS test Not only has English become an international language, it is used by more and more people around the world as a medium of post-school study.

To help universities and colleges select students with sufficient English skills to succeed in their courses, the IELTS test was introduced in to assess "whether candidates are ready to study or train in the medium of English".

It is now used for this purpose around the globe. This choice must be made when applying to sit the test. The Academic TELTS test is necessary for students who plan to study at university undergraduate or postgraduate comses , and will test the student's ability both to understand and to use complex academic language.

The General Training IELTS test is required by other institutions, such as colleges and high schools, for courses that require less complex language skills, and is also used as a general test of English proficiency e. Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking. Students must sit all four subtests. On the day of the test, the four subsections will be taken in the following order: The Listening test lasts for about 30 minutes. It consists of four sections, played on cassette tape, in order of increasing difficulty.

Each section might be a dialogue or a monologue. The test is played once only, and the questions for each section must be answered while listening, although time is given for students to check their answers. Unit 2 of this book contains five practice Listening tests, recorded on the accompanying cassette tape. The Reading test lasts for 60 minutes.

Both tests consist of three sections, and in both tests different question types are used to assess students' comprehension. In both tests the sections arc in order of increasing difficulty. Unit 3 of this book contains five Reading practice tests. The Writing test also lasts for 60 minutes. Again, students take either an Academic test, or a General Training test.

Students must perform two writing tasks, which require different styles of writing. There is no choice of question topics. For more detail and Writing practice tests, turn to Unit 4 of this book. The Speaking test consists of a one-ta-one interview with a specially trained examiner.

The examiner will lead the candidate through the three parts of the test: This interview will last for approximately minutes. For more detail, turn to Unit 5 of this book.

How the test is marked , Each module is marked on a scale from 1 up to 9. These bands are given according to highly detailed marking guidelines. These marking guidelines are not made public, but correspond roughly to the following descriptions: What do the band scores mean? The marks, or bands, that a student receives show their ability to use and understand English. This will usually depend on the language requirements for the course, that is, how difficult is the level of language that students are required to use and understand in each course.

It rates a student's ability to use English in the four major language skill areas: Each module contains a variety of question types, and all of them are designed to simulate the language tasks that arc needed in real life academic and training situations.

Thus the scores that a student achieves in the IELTS test will give the student and the institution to which they have applied a clear idea of the student's ability to use English and whether their language skills are strong enough for them to study their desired course, or to fit more easily into the English-speaking community.

This is an official rule, but in any case it is unlikely that a student's score will improve in less than three months. Part 2: You will probably find it most useful after you have completed one or more of the practice tests in this book. Analyse your weaknesses To begin with, read the following statements and tick g any that apply to you. Listening I cannot listen and read the questions at the same time E 0 rdo not understand what the question is asking me to do E 0 I do not understand what I hear L 0 Reading I run out of time and do not answer all the questions F 0 It takes me a long time to read the passages E 0 1do not understand what the question is asking me to do E 0 I do not understand the reading passages L 0 Writing I am not sure what the question means E 0 Tcannot write quickly enough E 0 rdo not have enough ideas to write about on the topic L 0 1cannot say what I think in English L 0 Speaking 1get nervous and make mistakes E 0 The examiner asks me questions 1have not thought about before E 0 I do not understand the examiner's questions L 0 Tfeel threatened when the examiner asks me to speak for 1 or 2 minutes F 0 After each statement you will find a letter: These refer to: Format, Exam Practice and Language Practice.

As you read the sections below, you will find suggestions under each heading to help you improve your IELTS score. What are the sections of the test? Which one comes first? How much time is allowed for each section? How many questions are there? How long must 1speak? These are simple questions to answer, but important.

Once you are familiar with the test format, you will be more relaxed. You will be able to focus on answering questions well, rather than worrying about how many questions there are, or how much time is left. You will find the answers to these questions in the introduction to this book, and in more detail in the IELTS Handbook, available from test administration centres.

These are techniques to help you show off your language skills during the short time you have in the exam. The first skill to work on is timing. You will have to practise reading and writing under time constraints.

Practise speed reading every day. Try reading a short passage in a fixed time for example, set yourself three minutes to read it quickly. You will not understand everything in the first reading, but you will become more used to skimming a text to get a general idea of its main points.

Then you can come back to read certain parts of the text with more attention. Likewise, try writing for a set period of time every day. For this exercise, total accuracy is not necessary; rather you are trying to practise getting your ideas down on paper quickly.

Set yourself a different topic each day, such as Computers, the Family, Industry in my country, etc. Write notes to your friends, or short descriptions of something you have seen. Your speed will improve gradually, and will be very useful in the exam, when you must write a certain number of words for each task in a set period of time. There are many different types, and they do not all appear in every exam.

But by knowing some types, you will be familiar with the kinds of tasks you are expected to do, and you will save time because you can interpret the question more easily.

Start with the exams in this book.

Do each test under exam conditions, then afterwards look at the tests again. What kind of questions were asked in each section? Multiple choice? Short answers? Matching parts of sentences?

Filling in diagrams? Look at the kinds of questions used, and what they are asking you to do. If you had problems with any of them, do them again, slowly, so that you are sure of what you are doing. Then when yOll sit the real test, you will be more familiar with the kinds of questions asked, and will understand what you have to do more quickly.

Do not assume they will be exactly the same as the practice tests! Finally, you might think about sitting a real JELlS test "just for practice". You will get to know how it works, and get practice working under exam conditions. If this is not possible, you can ask other students who have taken the IELTS test about their experience, and find out which tasks they think require the most preparation.

Language Practice. Exam practice and knowing the format will help you in the IELTS test by leaving you free to concentrate on your language skills. However, you will need to work hard to further develop these skills.

To do this, it uses the kinds of tasks that might be found in real- life situations. Thereforc, you will not be able to simply memorise answers. Your IELTS score will be a reflection of your language ability, and to do well, you will have to work on your language skills. These will include: Make the most of the work you study in class by reviewing it regularly.

Re-read your class notes; note carefully any areas where you had problems. Work on them again and see your teacher if you still have questions. Try to use new vocabulary in your writing compositions, or in conversation. Practise grammatical structures in the same way. Your teacher knows what you need and will try to help you overcome language problems. By going over lessons you will get the maximum benefit from your tead1er's skills and work. Out of class work Most experts agree that the quickest way to improve in a language is to immerse yourself in it.

Therefore, to improve your English skills, try to get into as many situations where you and other people are using English. This may be difficult if you live in a non-English speaking country. However, try to find English interest groups, go to English films and listen to English on the radio.

Read English books and magazines. In an English-speaking country this is much easier. Wherever there are people, you will be able to use and understand English. English books and magazines will also be easier to obtain. Try to spend as much of your day as possible using English. You will probably end up dreaming in English, too! A final word The practice tests in this book are designed to help you understand the nature of the test.

You cannot use your results in these tests to accurately predict your performance in a live IELTS test where you will be doing an examination with all its attendant stresses. You can, however, get to know the form of the test very well.

With all this preparation - getting to know the format of the IELTS test, practising exam techniques, class work and private study - you will be ready to do your best in the IELTS exam. Try also to relax, and do some activities that you enjoy. An occasional break from your studies will give you fresh energy and motivation to continue studying ha. Then if you have unexpected transport problems or some other delay, you will have extra time to sort them out before the test starts.

There is nothing worse than arriving late, upset and flustered, when you need all your mental energy for the exam. Concentrate fully on the module you have in front of you. Don't spend too much time on anyone answer; if you do, you may not answer the other questions properly. Don't finish quickly, then sit doing nothing. In the time remaining, check your answers - you might change a wrong answer to a right answer and gain extra marks.

The vocabulary and any diagrams will give you some idea of what you are about to hear. You will then make the most of what you hear, because you will know what to listen for. You do not yet know what information you are looking for, and you will waste precious time if you try to read and understand everything.

Firstly, read the heading of the text. This will give you a very general idea of what the passage is about. Secondly, quickly read through the questions. How many questions are there relating to this text? What kind of questions are they? This will help you focus when you read the text, as you will have some idea what to look for.

Thirdly, turn to the reading passage, and read it through quickly. The purpose here is to get a general understanding of the passage - you do not need to understand every detail. Finally, turn again to the questions and begin to work through them, referring back to the passage when you need to, and reading important sections carefully and slowly.

If at any time you cannot answer a question, or it is taking you a long time, leave it and come back to it at the end. The Writing test The style and shape of your answer will be covered in more detail in Unit 4 of this book.

On a very practical level, however: Bring several pens to the test with you. You will waste valuable time. These things are easily corrected and affect what mark your work will receive.

The Speaking test Preparation for this test will be covered in more detail in Unit 5 of this book. Some things to think about: Talk as much as possible. This is not rude; the examiner needs to hear you talk a lot, so he or she can find out your proficiency level. Use the suggestions in Unit 5 to prepare for the interview.

Think about your opinions and your reasons for holding them. Use all the information on the card to help you, and practise with a timer so you know how long you shouId speak. If you prepare carefully for the JELTS test using the practice tests and the strategies in Units 4 and 5, and note the hints for the day of the test, you will show your language skills to their best advantage.

Good luck! Each test, which is made up of four sections, should take 30 minutes only, plus 10 minutes to transfer your answers to the Answer Sheet, as you will do in the real IELTS test. Each Listening Practice Test is recorded on cassette.

There is no need to stop the cassette during a test; all pauses for you to read the next questions are included on the cassette. In Unit 1 of this book you will find general information about the Listening Module and strategies to help you before you begin. You should complete each test under exam conditions. Write your answers on each page as you complete each question, as you would in an ELTS test. This will give you practice in transferring your answers, which must be done with care.

The answers to each Listening Practice Test can be found in Unit 6, along with complete tapescripts for you to confirm your understanding of information and of vocabulary items. Transfer your answers from the question pages to this Answer Sheet at the end of the Listening Test.
