Road to IELTS Full Version is the British Council’s comprehensive, 100% online IELTS preparation course. This includes over 300 interactive activities, 17 videos giving advice and tutorials, 36 practice tests — everything a candidate needs to get a great IELTS score!
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. A video and ebook introduce 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.
Advice and Tutorials. In a series of videos, British Council experts give advice, both specific (e.g. skimming the first paragraph in the Reading test) and general (e.g. dealing with nerves in the Speaking test).
Practice Zone. With more than 300 focused activities, candidates practise tackling the whole range of task types and familiarise themselves with the format of the exam.
Test Practice. Candidates simulate the test experience with nine full mock tests in each of Reading, Writing, and Listening papers, and nine simulations of Part 2 of the Speaking test.
