Why the IELTS tests what it does, and how to give the examiners what they want…!

prepare ielts it is what it is

In this video, I address some student questions about why the IELTS wants us to show the examiners certain things, as in functional English, logical structures, and not just grammar and vocab. I show the CEFR tables and point out how the IELTS criteria fits in with the criteria for determining your English level. I also made this lesson into a podcast which you can listen to and download (link below). Also, if you go to the pod site, you can download the relevant files for this lesson.

There is a lot of information here, so if you have any questions, you can always write to me at kevin@prepareielts.com.

Happy viewing…
