hi Kirk
I am afraid that TakeIELTS doesn't exist anymore.
Could you suggest another link or other websites for me to practise.
Thank you.

Hi Minh,

I've checked and TakeIELTS is working fine. You should be able to access it using Kirk's link. Please try again and let us know if you have any problems.

i don't know where i stands for. I usually try to speak in English and sings songs in English because i love English music. i don't know my level of English. i don't know from where i improve more because i don't know my level. I speaks in assent like british and american and i think this assent comes in my talking because of i listen too much english music and videos but sometimes it is neither british nor us accent. I'm sure you will laugh on this but its happen with me. sometimes i think that i should work on more on grammer and vocabulary.
i want to know is there any test to know my level. i want to give ielts exam but i don't know am i suitable to it or not. and want to know how long should i prepare for ielts exam, mean that is it 1 year or 2 years? i want to be good in all aspects of English and ielts is the good choice but confused to prepare it or not.

if prepare from where i get study meterial and all the stuff which will help me to prepare my ielts exam.

i am thinking now days that first do all the section in this site of british council and after i will start to prepare ielts when i have some grasp or english.

help me

Hello ASH_B,

I'm afraid we don't offer a level test at LearnEnglish, but I expect you could take one at a British Council Teaching Centre near you. You could also search the internet for 'free level test English', though I'm not sure how reliable the different tests you find will be.

The IELTS is not a test that you pass or fail – the score you get describes your level. I'd highly recommend you read more about it at TakeIELTS if you want to know more.

Finally, I'd suggest you read our Help page, where you can find advice on how to use the LearnEnglish to improve your level.

All the best,

If my level in english is intermediate so can I got 6.5 grade in IELTS

Hello hashem jaber,

It's not really possible to translate 'intermediate' into an IELTS grade. It depends on too many variables, and 'intermediate' is a very broad description. The best thing for you to do would be to take a mock exam to see what score you get, and you can find this (and other materials) on the British Council's site for IELTS candidates, TakeIELTS.

try to keep in mind that
first person singulars are I, You, We and third person singulars are He she It so most of the time third persons are followed by verb s E.g She wants to go home and with the first person no verb s is added E.g I want to go
