Road to IELTS is organised by skill, allowing candidates to plan their learning according to specific individual needs. Alternatively, teachers can set up learning paths, guiding candidates to the areas where they most need practice. As learners work through Road to IELTS, the Progress function enables them to monitor their activity across sessions, analyse the way they are spending their time and compare their performance with other online users. They can even predict their scores in the Reading and Listening test using our interactive widget.


Starting out. An eBook introduces each skill area, explaining task types and providing hints not only on how to prepare but also on how to achieve the best marks on test day.
