10 Minute Practice Exercises


These exercises are designed to act as useful revision in the period running up to your exam. You can do them alone and check your answers. They cover writing skills, vocabulary and grammar. The vocabulary should be useful for all parts of the exam, but I have based them on topics that often come up in Speaking exams.

Think of them as quick IELTS press-ups!
