Don’t get timed out

In the IELTS Speaking test you are required to speak within a time limit, however, we won’t cut you off if you take too long to start. Get the time and consideration you deserve with IELTS.

Clarify the question

IELTS assesses your speaking skills face-to-face with another human because conversations happen in real life, not with a computer. We can pause, repeat and rephrase the question if you don’t understand – and that’s perfectly OK!

We hear your accent

IELTS is an international test, and we accept your accent wherever in the world you’re from. Your examiner will match your speaking pace and proficiency. They can also increase or decrease the level of difficulty depending on your English skills.
