We completed the switch-over to the new version of Road to IELTS on 3 December. At that point we said goodbye to V2. Over the course of its life, V2 racked up an impressive 21,823,544 sessions and was used in almost every country in the world — from Australia to the Democratic Republic of Congo.
On to the new version. Do take a look at it here.
There’s a new user experience, aimed squarely at the IELTS generation. There’s a load of new content, especially in the Listening section. And most importantly it now runs on mobile as well as desktop, laptop and tablet.
In more detail, the most significant differences between the old version and the new version are:
- a new and much better-looking user interface with a strong focus on user experience
- new and updated activities in the Reading, Writing and Listening sections with new questions, all recently created by the British Council writers
- all graphs in Writing Part 1 are redrawn to accommodate different screen sizes
- no more Flash needed for your browser, no app download — just run the URL
- new and updated Study Guides and Study Planner
- new materials to help teachers familiarise themselves with the program
We want candidates to be able to prepare for their test whenever they want to. They can now spend 10 minutes on one Reading activity during their lunch break, or they can watch a 5-minute video on test strategies before they go to bed.
We know that Road to IELTS V2 helped IELTS candidates raise their band score — and we have even higher hopes for this brand new version. Give it a try!
