Hello violeta,

It sounds like you need to download and install the latest version of the Adobe Flash player. That should solve the problem, but if not, please let us know.

Hi zeyad147,

Thank you for you nice words. Good luck with your next test - if you keep improving then you should do very well indeed!

If you haven't looked at it already then I recommend you visit the British Council's site for IELTS candidates, TakeIELTS, where you can find a lot of useful information on the exam, including pratice tasks, mock exam papers, sample answers and more.

Best wishes,

Hi salahjoon,

The first thing to check is that you are using a compatible device. If you are accessing the site on a mobile device, such as a phone or tablet, then there may be problems with compatibility. If so, try accessing it on a desktop or laptop computer to see if this helps.
