If you are on the IELTS Academic, IELTS General or OET Speaking Intensive package, you will receive two live speaking tests that will be completed 1:1 with one of our expert teachers. See: Do you have a speaking-only package?


Any E2Language student who has a paid account can purchase the Speaking Intensive assessments as an 'add-on'. Please see: How do I purchase the Speaking Intensive assessments?


PTE Speaking Intensive students please see: How do I submit my assessments for feedback?


When you book a live Speaking Intensive test session, YOU choose a date and time that is convenient for you; you will be allocated a teacher who is available at that time. A Speaking Intensive test session cannot be booked within the next 24 hours, but can be booked up to 7 days in advance.


You will generally receive your feedback within 48 hours. To see the criteria we mark them under, please check What feedback do I receive on my speaking intensive test?

1. Log in to your account.


2. Select 'LIVE SPEAKING FEEDBACK' from the left sidebar menu of your student dashboard, and then click on 'Register' next to Speaking Intensive.

NOTE: If you have technical issues during the live speaking test that could have been avoided by preparation, we will need to count the session as taken. To rebook it, you need to pay a fee of USD$15.
