The IELTS General Test is a test that assesses listening, reading, writing and speaking in less than three hours. The IELTS is divided into two categories: IELTS Academic and IELTS General for candidates who want to demonstrate their language skills in education. Listening and Speaking are the same in both tests. Reading and Writing are the sections that separate the two tests. Thanks to the IELTS General Course, we aim you to enter all sections ready and get the highest score from all sections.
IELTS General Course and Exam Format
Listening, Reading and Writing tests of all IELTS tests are completed on the same day, while the Speaking exam is held on a separate day. The total duration of the exam is 165 minutes. With the IELTS General Course, we also work to ensure that you don’t have to worry about timing.

In Chapter 3, a conversation takes place between two main speakers (for example, two high school students directed by the teacher), and in Chapter 4 there is a monologue on an academic topic. Recordings are heard only once. Speakers include various country accents such as the British, Australia, New Zealand, America, and Canada.
