The IELTS test consists of four parts in the following order:

Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking.

Listening takes about 30 minutes - 20 minutes to listen to a tape and to answer
questions on what you hear, and 10 minutes to transfer your answers to Answer Sheet.

Reading takes 1 hour and your task is to read passages of text and answer questions
according to what you have read. There are also other types of assignments which I
will cover later on.

Writing takes also 1 hour and is divided into 2 sub-parts: 20 minutes to write a letter
and 40 minutes to write an essay.

Speaking takes up to 15 minutes and consists of 3 parts: Personal Interview, Little
Speech and a Discussion.

All the parts continue one after another, and only before Speaking you get a little
break.

Listening at a glance
Listening consists of 4 sections. There are about 38-40 questions in total. You need to
answer all the questions as you listen to the tape. Tape is not paused at any time and
you hear it only once. The questions get more difficult as you progress through the
test.

Reading at a glance
Reading consists of 4 text passages and about 40 questions in total. Your job is to read
the passages and either answer questions, label diagrams, complete sentences or fill
gaps. For every type of task there are instructions and example. Passages are taken
from books, newspapers, magazines and the topics are very diverse, from scuba
diving to space exploration. Passages progress in difficulty, with first being the easiest
and fourth the hardest

Writing at a glance
Writing has 2 sub-tasks. First one is to write a letter according to scenario you
receive, using about 150 words. The second task is to write an Essay on given topic,
present and justify opinion or give solution to a problem, using not less than 250
words.

Speaking at a glance
This is the fun part of the test, for many reasons. You get to rest before it, you are a
little tired from previous 3 parts and therefore more relaxed. The examiners are
trained to smile no matter what, so you feel as if you were speaking to your best
friend.

First sub-part of Speaking test is an interview, which means that the examiner asks
you questions about yourself, your work, studies, parents, brothers/sisters, pets, etc.
This is an easy task to prepare for.

In the second sub-part of Speaking test you receive a card with 3-4 questions. After
one minute, that you have to think about something to say, you should give a little
speech for one to two minutes, which answers those questions. In the end the
examiner might ask you a couple of additional questions.
