App Review: IELTSpeaking


 Reviewed by: Veronica D'Onofrio

 Simulate the full IELTS speaking test with a  native speaker

 Sorry guys Only for Mac   iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch!


This app was designed to help IELTS examinees rapidly improve their English speaking skills. The best thing about this application is that it simulates the IELTS speaking test! So you can experience the speaking exam in real time.




  1. Simulates the full IELTS speaking test with a native speaker (a useful but creepy animation).
  2. You are able to record every step of the speaking test! And review your attempts to see which parts you are doing well and which parts you need to improve.
  3. You can set up your own study plan! Every day attempts are computed to form your daily effort so you can earn points when you practise.
  4. A large classified topic store is available so you can practise different topics.  


Cons..IELTS App Review

  1. When the app is downloaded you can select a variety of topics for the practice test, but these topics only are available for 30 days. If you want more topics you have to win points with your daily practice or purchase points from €0.99. Try to understand the points system before starting!
  2. This application simulates the test in real time, so you need to complete all the exam to be able to listen  to your perform and this can be a little slow.


How to use it!

First of all you need to choose a topic and download it. More than 100 mock-ups are available in the store and more are coming over time.

When the topic is already downloaded select it and press the button ‘start the test’.

Then the animation appears, but the test begins and the app starts recording only when you press the red button below.

You are able to pause the test if needed. Remember when you finish you can hear everything and check your answers.

Overall, I think the app is useful and it’s worth the experience! Let us know your opinion!
