Many people have no information about IELTS so today I decide to tell you brief history of IELTS exam and also tell you why IELTS exam is important for us, many people want to migrate from their own country to developing country like I take example Indian people want to migrate from India to Canada so in that case both countries have their own mother language, India have Hindi mother language and Canada have English mother language that’s why Indian people have to give International English Language Test (IELTS) to go Canada because English is international language and every non-English person have to give test before going any country.

The first section takes the form of an interview during which candidates may be asked about their hobbies, interests, reasons for taking IELTS exam as well as other general topics such as clothing, free time, computers and the internet or family. In the second section candidates are given a topic card and then have one minute to prepare after which they must speak about the given topic. The third section involves a discussion between the examiner and the candidate, generally on questions relating to the theme which they have already spoken about in part 2. This last section is more abstract, and is usually considered the most difficult.
