As you know, there are 2 modules of IELTS: Academic and General.
Questions which were asked during real IELTS speaking. The whole speaking part of both academic IELTS and general IELTS took less than fifteen minutes.
This test is in two parts, one of eight questions, the other of five. For the first part you have to read the text, and then match the paragraph headings A – H with the paragraphs 1-8
The speaking module is the same for the general and academic exam. The test takes an average of about fifteen minutes to complete. Unlike some other speaking exams you have your own examiner. The examiner does not make up the questions you will be asked – the questions are written down on a sheet called the ‘examiner frame’.
Both the academic and general training modules of the IELTS are in two parts and last for one hour. The first task is shorter, and requires the candidate to write about 150 words. This task is worth one third of the marks for the paper, and therefore you should not spend more than 20 minutes on it. The second part should be about 250 words long and should take the remaining 40 minutes.
