IELTS LIFE SKILLS( A1-A2-B1)

People who must demonstrate their English speaking and listening abilities at Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) Levels A1, A2, or B1 should take the IELTS Life Skills exam.

The test’s tasks are based on commonplace topics like employment, transportation, and the weather, reflecting communication in an English-speaking nation. Speaking and listening abilities are covered in one test.

Check the English language requirements for your visa category before registering for your test. Get in touch with UK Visas and Immigration if you’re already there (part of the UK Home Office). You should get in touch with the British Embassy or High Commission in wherever you are in the world.

IELTS LIFE SKILLS TEST FORMAT

There are 3 Life Skills tests available:

IELTS Life Skills – A1 Speaking and Listening.

IELTS Life Skills – A2 Speaking and Listening (Offered in the UK only).

ELTS Life Skills – B1 Speaking and Listening.

The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), the internationally accepted standards for assessing language proficiency, assigns each exam a level, either A1, A2, or B1, depending on the test.

Two key components make up life skills assessments. In the first section of the exam, you will be required to ask and respond to questions on known subjects. The test’s second section consists of a listening and speaking task.

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?

The task for the Life Skills test will be played on a CD for all test-takers to complete. You’ll be graded on your ability to listen for both the big picture and the specifics once you finish the activity. Although you can take notes on paper as you listen to the CD, you must speak your responses.

After completing this job, you will be required to lead a discussion on a subject connected to the CD you just listened to.

 

There is an additional exercise where you and the other test-takers must design an activity for the IELTS Life Skills B1 level.

HOW WILL MY SCORING BE DONE?

Four essential linguistic skills will be evaluated in you:

acquiring knowledge.

transferring knowledge.

Speaking to convey ideas.

Having a conversation

You will occasionally be permitted to take notes during the exam in order to plan your responses. Only your speaking and listening abilities will be examined by the examiner; no notes will be marked.

Why should I take the test alongside a different test taker?

IELTS Life Skills measures your ability to interact with others in ordinary English. The ideal approach to assess these abilities is to connect you up with another applicant who is similarly skilled so that you can demonstrate how well you can use English to interact and have a conversation with people.

HOW LONG DOES THE TEST TAKE?

Life Skills tests are completed in one short session:

IELTS Life Skills – A1 Speaking and Listening: 16 –18 minutes.

IELTS Life Skills – A2 Speaking and Listening: 20 minutes.

IELTS Life Skills – B1 Speaking and Listening: 22 minutes.

if you want to live permanently with a parent, spouse, or partner who is already a UK resident.

If you currently reside in the UK and wish to remain there permanently.

if you wish to obtain British citizenship.
