Most overseas enthusiasts dream of their study overseas or working in foreign countries. To fulfill this wish, one of the most common criteria demanded by institutions or organizations is the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) score.

IELTS is a standardized proficiency test that analyzes and evaluates a candidate’s skill in the English language. This is an essential skill and hence a good score in this test is essential for anyone who wishes to work or study abroad.

IELTS test has a duration of 2 hours and 45 minutes. It includes 4 sections:

  • Listening
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Speaking

The scoring range of the test is from 1 to 9 in each of these sections. This makes the test something nobody passes or fails. As different institutions may set different minimum scores, the candidate’s score matters to his choice of institution. Candidates can give the test on paper or computer.

If you are interested in IELTS, you should definitely be interested in knowing how to learn it. Here are some techniques that may help:

Practice with timing

It’s always best to take the test early in the day. It will help you plan and prepare better leading to better scores within the available time slot.

Developing listening skills

Developing a habit of listening to English podcasts is a great practice. Listening to high-quality English speeches regularly can improve your knowledge of accents, vocabulary, and pronunciation.

Learn to get natural with accent

Never make your accent sound artificial. Faking an accent will be easily detected by the invigilators and lead to the deduction of marks. Besides, the natural accent will score more in the test.

Develop your reading skills

Read newspapers, books, magazines or anything that is of standard English, either in print or online. Add to your vocabulary so that you may use rich and better words while doing the writing section of the test.

Make your writing skills better

Practice writing essays to a time limit. Getting a habit of this can help you immensely in the test. Practice writing on any topic of your interest. Develop your knack around your writing skills. Regular practice can even increase the speed of writing.

Practice pronunciation and gain fluency

To practice English speaking, take your friends’ or family’s help. Speak on any particular topic for like 5 minutes. Keep practicing this and develop your style and fluency. This will help you score better. Speak at a moderate pace. Be clear in what you are speaking.

Your best efforts to prepare with the right strategy can help you ace the IELTS test.
