The Speaking test is conducted in the form of a personal
interview (PI), in which the interviewer assesses how engaging you are and how well you can express yourself. The test is based on basic British-spoken English.
The Speaking Module of IELTS is conducted on a separate day, while the other three (Writing, Listening and Reading) are conducted on the same day. The Speaking module may be scheduled as far as one week before or after the other three modules. In this face-to-face interview, the examiner will assess the candidate’s fluency, confidence, and the comfort level in the English language. The interview session is also recorded for referencing and re-checking purposes. The Speaking test of IELTS lasts for about 15 minutes.
