There is an incredible amount of excellent material for IELTS practice on the web for students who want to work at home to prepare the test.

First – the official sites  ….…

  • – the British Council and Cambridge are the first place to look for free material for IELTS practice online.
  • Take IELTS (British Council)
  • Or you can do a course with the British Council’s and Clarity’s Road to IELTS.
  • A great free online IELTS practice course that I did to try it out: Understanding IELTS
  • Or an online course from Cambridge and Future Learn, Inside IELTS.

Then 5 of my favourite IELTS practice sites run by IELTS teachers and examiners.

Lots of help here too and for some you can subscribe to get new lessons sent by email.

  • My favourite IELTS practice site is: It’s well organised, has lots of examples and I find that the information is good. She also has some YouTube videos which are very helpful.
  • I also like the new Flo Joe Ielts speaking site: where you can lots of free exercises to improve your IELTS speaking. One part of the site I find really useful is the test section where you can listen to candidates doing the text and hear the advice to improve their performance.
  • International House London – where many IELTS tests are taken has a good blog page with lots of useful tips for improving your score :
  • DC Cole has some good information for IELTS practice. Everything seems to be free and he has lots of tips and examples for writing. His Facebook page is a good place to start:
