IELTS 15 - What's new?

IELTS Authentic Practice Tests are one of our bestselling books on Amazon and really popular with IELTS candidates because they are EXACTLY like the real exam. We check the practice tests with real students to make sure they are the same level as the IELTS Academic and General Training tests so you can be confident you are getting the most authentic experience possible.    Listening Practice: Listen to Emma read what’s new with IELTS 15     IELTS Authentic Practice Tests are suitable for all students preparing for the IELTS test. You get four practice tests to familiarise yourself with the test format for each part. The tests can be used flexibly alongside courses or other IELTS preparation materials. You can use them over your IELTS preparation journey, or as a final check before you take your IELTS test. What’s new in IELTS 15? 1. QR codes for easy audio and video links The QR codes will take you straight to the audio or video you need for each test. You just need a QR reader on your phone. Don’t worry if you don’t have this, you can also download the same content in the Resource Bank.   2. Improved book navigation Page references at the end of each part allow you to go directly to the answer keys, audioscripts and Writing sample answers needed to check the task.    3. Example Speaking test video This will show you a Speaking test in real life so you know what to expect on test day. We also have examiner feedback on the Speaking test so you can see the kind of things they’ll be looking for. The examiner also shares some handy tips!    4. Answer keys with extra explanations for Reading and Listening These will help you to understand why the answers given are the correct ones. IELTS Reading and Listening tasks use lots of ‘distractors’ - options that seem very likely but are actually incorrect. The Answer key with extra explanations will also give reasons for why these options are wrong.  5. Additional sample Writing answers You can use these to see extra Writing answers at different levels for each of the tasks in the book. You can compare the different answers to get a better understanding of what is expected at each level.      Please see below example screens you will see when you are activating your Resource Bank code:   I hope you've found this summary useful! If you have any questions please do contact us on Facebook or Instagram - we'd love to hear from you.
