Skip to 0 minutes and 16 secondsWelcome to Inside IELTS. My name is Nuria, and like you, I'm learning English and I would like to find out more about the IELTS test. I have so many questions about the IELTS, and I'm sure that you do too. For example, in the speaking test should I practise speaking with perfect grammar, or is it more important to be fluent and confident? And in the reading, I always run out of time, what can I do? I have loads more questions follow me on this course as I try to find the answers. Cambridge English Language Assessment made this course, and this organization makes the IELTS test, so I'm sure they can answer our questions.
