IELTS stands for International English Language Testing System. It assesses the English language skills of candidates who want to study, work or migrate to English speaking countries. It is owned and conducted jointly by IDP Education (IELTS Australia), the British Council, and the University of Cambridge. There are two modules in IELTS test: Academic and General Training.
Academic Module is conducted for those candidates who wish to study at undergraduate or postgraduate levels in English speaking countries such as USA, UK, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand. General Training Module is administered for those candidates who wish to migrate to English-speaking countries or enroll in trainings or short-term courses below degree programs.
IELTS test consists of four subtests: Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. Listening and Speaking are the same for both Academic and General Training modules, yet there are some differences in Reading and Writing subtests
Speaking subtest consists of an oral interview, face-to-face, between a candidate and an examiner. Speaking subtest is made up of three parts:
The examiner will introduce herself and ask you questions about family, interest, food, festivals, and other such topics of general interest. You are required to give details in your response.
You will receive a cue card on which the topic and a brief outline are printed. You will receive 1 minute to prepare for your talk. The examiner will give you scratch paper and a pencil to facilitate your preparation. You will have to speak for 2-3 minutes on the assigned topic.
