Hi, so amazed and grateful for your materials. But how can I get a script for this test? Would be really helpful

Hi 🙂 Many many thanks for these materials, this web page helps me a LOT! 🙂 Is that possible to download the audio somehow? Or it only awailable in this site? I would like to download and put it on phone/mp3 player etc. to listen to it even if I’m on my way 🙂 Thank you for your help! Have a nice day! 🙂

Hi,

Thank you for your comment. The website we have been using to upload audio files doesn’t allow downloading the mp3 file. I’m so sorry for this.
We are trying to find another website which doesn’t require premium account to upload hundreds of audio files so that IELTS learners can download them to study offline.
Please stay tuned!

All the best!
