What is the IELTS exam
IELTS stands for International English Language Testing System. It is an exam intended for non-native English speakers. Its purpose is to find out what your level of English is (your result is a band score from 0 to 9).
The Speaking test
Takes up to 15 minutes and consists of 3 parts: a Personal Interview, a Cue Card talk and a discussion. All the parts continue one after another, and only before the Speaking test you get a break. Sometimes the Speaking test is even held on a different day.
