Reading Test 1

Here is a practice IELTS Reading Test for you. In the left column are the reading passages. In the right column are the questions. (If you are using a phone, you will probably see these at the top and bottom of the screen.) You can scroll up and down both columns separately. You can check the questions as you go through the test. In the exam you have 40 minutes. If you are taking the IELTS test soon, try to complete the test in 40 minutes. If you are new to IELTS, take as long as you need. Good luck!

The test is viewed best on a desktop / laptop computer.
