As an experienced ELT teacher, I thought I should review this audiobook for my students. There is so much IELTS material available to buy, that how does a student know where s/he will get good value for money? The choice is overwhelming.
This audiobook runs through the differences between the three speaking tests....nothing new there, many books do that... but this one is audio (obvious, I know!) hence has an added advantage of listening practice for an IELTS student. It brings the lesson to life and feels quite real, as opposed to the black and white print of 'yet another' theoretical "How to pass an exam" book. The teacher corrects the student's (minor) errors, and gives feedback on which mistakes are of little concern to the examiners and which are to be avoided, at all costs. The teacher gives excellent tips to the student about structuring answers before speaking in the IELTS test. The teacher provides a formula for success at IELTS.
I liked the relaxed style of the speakers (teacher and student). The rapport was natural. One could hear the student learning throughout the audiobook "lesson" and of course, there was the added advantage of being able to listen to a dialogue, on a familiar topic - absolutely ideal for IELTS candidates.... A student would get a lot of benefit from listening to the audiobook several times.
I think that anyone taking an IELTS speaking test will benefit from this audiobook; regardless of the level that they aspire to achieve. The cost of the audiobook is extremely reasonable when one considers the lessons learned within the audiobook and then compare this with the cost of lessons in a regular IELTS course at a language school.
As a result of listening to this audiobook, I have bought all of the other IELTS books in the series and I will be recommending the audiobook series to my students.
