"IELTS" is an English examination which is adopted at Australia and UK.
At Canada, It is adopted to the English level standard of immigration system.

The Test has Listening/Reading/Writing/Speaking.
It is held to separate on 2 days. This time, I first took it.

I surprised at thing that all of description is English.
Of course, as the examination place is Japan, the staff could speak Japanese.
I felt to start the examination when I just entered the place.
And There were a lot of non-Japanese, so Chinese, Korean, Indian.
I think they were about 1/3.
I see the staff is very hard because there were some of races,
although Almost people is Asian.
There was a non-Japanese who clothed sweatshirt pained "Tokyo"
and so I thought "you are a tourist!"
The immigration city in Canada may be likely this too.

And the bring things is very strict.
-a passport
-some pencils(not mechanical pencils)
-an eraser(take off a cover)
-you can only bring a plastic bottle of water(take off a label)
You have to put your baggages to the keeping baggage floor.
At the examination place, we have to get even tissues
from the examination staff.

The test is to listen some conversations and a fill-in-the-blanks question.
It isn't an exam using a computer-scored answer sheet.
There is the question that listening simple address
and phone number and only write but I may haven't correct.
I failed to get off because it was difference
from my supposition. Especially unexpected thing is how to
the first we write all answers to a question paper
and the last we write the answers to an answer paper.
I noticed it and I failed. It is important that you listen the description
and you read the description in a question paper carefully.

The test is to read some long passages and answer the  question
for relation it. There are about 4 passages.
These were the question(shown bellow).
-Which chapter is the description?
-Does the description correct?(TRUE or FALSE or NOT GIVEN)
-a fill-in-the-blanks question for the description.
The difference from TOEIC, The limit time is better for me.

The test is to write essays about two theme which is decided.
Each themes was called "Task1", "Task2".

<Task1>(The Least 150words 20min)
The theme is that you get married and write about a letter of invitation
to an English speaker friend.
And you have to write following conditions.
-Write about wife or husband
-What happen do you wedding
-Wedding invitation information(time, place etc)

My written conditions was 2nd which get married
because I don't have writing content a little.
How about does markers it?

<Task2>(The Least 250words 40min)
The theme is that a lot of people think that to live in large city is difficult
and answer you about following questions.
--What difficult do you think that you live in a large city.
--What is resolution for issues.
*Including for concrete  examples or experiences

I write it about Tokyo. Was it correct?
It wasn't correct if it is a "big" city usually.

The test is to speak to a test tube in 15min.
Answer to questions from a test tube.
Then a test tube is "Mike" who is a white man. And so, I was recorded by him.
-Introduce yourself about name, place etc
-Talk about  a man who is success(you think for 2min and speak)
-Argument about the given theme
The theme is "What is success and happiness in your life.".

I think I could speak pretty well because there is effective of "RereJob".
But I can't argument so good. To say my opinion with English is difficult.
The last, I was finished by him as I stammered.

Actually I have taken IELTS, I have an impression
that all of things is an examination.
I wrote Name and Candidate number to each question paper and answer paper.
But To listen the description and read the description carefully is important
because how to write is difference in each examinations.
In Writing test, I have to write underline bellow last name.
For me, I tried to take IELTS with the five senses.
Maybe, I feel so when I will go to Canada.
After finished, My body got many sweat. It is different from TOEIC.

Well, although there are not a lot of  non-Japanese, Why are there a lot of them?
Certainly, I thought that it is easy to take it for them
who are English speaker because the description is written by English. 
Also in Japan, I wonder if there are a lot of companies
which adopt IELTS for standard of the recruitment.

After a few years, I will try to take IELTS. 
But I also took TOEIC exam recently and the score was 375... So dangerous!

Talk to you soon!
