Changes To IELTS for UK Visas

Changes to IELTS for UK visas

THE United Kingdom government has announced important changes to language testing for visa applications. It has reduced the number of tests accepted for visa purposes and brought in new requirements for the way the tests will be administered.

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) in a statement, said the changes have been approved for all UK visas that require applicants to provide proof of their level of English.

This continues the important role which IELTS, the world’s most popular test of English for higher education and global migration, has played in language testing for immigration in the UK and other countries, including Australia, Canada and New Zealand.

Under the new arrangements, IELTS tests for UK visa applications will be offered throughout the year in more than 100 key locations across the world, and a new test – IELTS Life Skills – will be introduced for people who need to prove their speaking and listening skills at level A1 or B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).
IELTS tests for visa purposes can only be taken at authorised centres, and the centre must follow procedures specified by the UK government.

Common Mistakes in Writing Task 2

Below are some extremely common mistakes made by candidates in their Writing Task 2 essays. Can you correct them?

1. In the present time

2. Due to globalization, we have western products in my country.

3. There are many problems in the social

4. The traffic is very jam

5. There are many drug addicted
Answers:

1. Should be ‘at present’.

2. ‘Due to’ cannot go at the beginning of a sentence – it should be: ‘We have western products in my country, due to globalisation’.

3. ‘Social’ is an adjective – should be: ‘society’ (n).

4. ‘Jam’ or ‘traffic jam’ are nouns – here you need an adjective to describe the traffic, so it should be: ‘The traffic is very jammed’… although nobody ever says that – just try ‘the traffic is bad’ or something similar.

5. ‘Addicted’ is an adjective – should be: ‘drug-addicts’ (n)
