This is IELTS!

This is IELTS! is a new group dedicated to bringing the IELTS community together. Whether you are an IELTS teacher or a student studying to take the IELTS exam, this group is aimed at you!

We hope to provide you with a platform to learn, discuss, improve and evolve as people involved in teaching or study for the IELTS exam.

This group started out because there seemed to be a lack of community spirit available online for those taking part in the exam. As a student, you have probably felt quite isolated and on your own at times in trying to study for this exam. As teachers, perhaps you have had difficulty in thinking of new and innovative ways to teach, get good teaching materials or to share ideas. This group now offers you a vehicle to achieve your aims as learners or teachers.

This is IELTS! offers you free teaching/learning materials, help, advice, information, interactive forums and live chat with experts. The small expat team here at This is IELTS!have a combined experience of over 35 years of teaching IELTS and being accredited IELTS examiners. We know our stuff and we are here to help you!

Thanks for dropping by This is IELTS! and we sincerely hope you soon feel at home here with us!

Hello Foreign Fox,

Great to hear from you here! I have some great materials for IELTS speaking, check out the PDF I have attached here. This will help you prepare for Parts 1 and 2 of the speaking test.

There is no kind of entrance test for the IELTS exam. generally speaking, students now need at least a Band 6, or higher, to gain entry into overseas universities. Also attached here are the Band Descriptors for you.

If you need more free material, then watch this space!! Also, please invite all of your students to join this group!

Hope this helps,
