Dear The Learn English Team, is there any material in this site that I can download? What should I do first to learn for IELTS?

Hello anisa hafsah nurbayati,

Many pages have downloadable content. For example, our audio materials have downloadable mp3 files and there are Study Packs on many pages. Interactive exercises are not downloadable for technical reasons, and the same is true of our videos.

As far as IELTS goes, you should visit the British Council's TakeIELTS site for advice on the exam, preparation materials, mock exam papers and sample answers. You can find the site here and I'm sure it will be a great help. You can also take a course at the British Council - special IELTS preparation courses are available, for example. For more details about courses in your country please look here.


Best wishes and good luck!

Hello Nusret,

I wonder what is the difference of IELTS UKVI Academic to IELTS Academic?

I really look forward to learning as much not only for my IELTS exam but also for my future usage of the language.

Hello gracemaryanne,

As I said in an answer to another question you had about IELTS, you can read more about IELTS, and find many useful preparation materials (including practice tests and sample answers) on the British Council's site for IELTS candidates: TakeIELTS.

You can find preparation courses at British Council Teaching Centres in your area, and also check where and when to take the test.


Best wishes and good luck!

I wanna improve my writing speaking and writing skills.

I really need to work hard in my writing skills. In an ielts test, i tend to get very nervous and run out of ideas while making a plan. As a result, i mess up writing the main paragraphs. I've given lots of exam in my life, but this particular test for me is nerve-wracking.

Hello Rock,

Have you seen TakeIELTS? There's lots of useful information and advice there, some of which might help you. You might also find a suitable workshop at the British Council centre in Kathmandu.

Good luck!

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team
