The IELTS Life Skills exam measures the speaking and listening abilities of non-native English speakers who must demonstrate their English language proficiency for immigration or citizenship purposes. There are two levels of the test: A1 and B1. Basic communication is done through A1, whereas more complicated communication is done through B1. Speaking and Listening are the two sections of the test.
The Speaking test, which is conducted in-person, evaluates a candidate's proficiency in speaking English in a range of contexts. A trained IELTS examiner administers the test, which lasts about 15 minutes. The candidate will be questioned on a range of subjects, including their job, family, home, hobbies, and general interests. They will be asked for their opinions on a range of subjects as well. The candidate's proficiency with various vocabulary, grammar rules, and pronunciation will be evaluated. The Listening test, which lasts 30 minutes, evaluates a candidate's capacity to comprehend spoken English in a range of real-world scenarios. The test is divided into four portions, each of which gets harder as it goes along.
