The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is a paper-based test that consists of four modules—Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking. Question types include multiple choice, sentence completion, short answer, classification, matching, labeling, and diagram/chart interpretation. Created by ESL experts at Cambridge University in the UK, the IELTS English proficiency exam is used worldwide for admission to English-speaking colleges and universities.
McGraw-Hill’s IELTS provides intensive instruction and practice for every question type you may encounter on this important exam, plus four complete sample tests with explanations. The audio CD packaged with the book provides audio tracks for all listening portions of the test.
The listening section consists of 4 subsections, each with one dialogue or monologue that test-takers are to listen to and answer questions that follow. The speaking section has 3 subsections. In the first, the test-taker is asked to talk about personal interests. Test-takers are expected to speak on a given topic in the next subsection. The third involves a discussion with the examiner on the topic of the last subsection. The CD contains tracks for both sections and these can be followed with the transcripts of the tracks in the book.
The reading section in the exam consists of 3 passages that need to be read, following which a set of 13 to 14 questions need to be answered based on the passage. The book provides multiple choice questions, sentence completion exercises, short and long answers questions, classifications, matching, and synonyms and antonyms of the kind seen in the exam.
The writing section in the exam consists of describing graphical data like charts and diagrams, responding to arguments and an essay writing subsection. To prepare for the writing section, the book carries sample essays for study. These essays are scored so students know what is required for a high-scoring essay. Practice topics are provided at the end of this section.
Each section is also given a time limit within which students are expected to finish answering questions. In addition, the book contains a section on the sort of vocabulary and grammar that is likely to appear in the exam. McGraw-Hill's IELTS gives 5 full length practice tests to familiarize students with the length and duration of the exam. Solutions are given for all the exercises at the end for reference.
