IELTS Speaking for Success is a podcast where a native English speaker answers IELTS speaking test questions.
IELTS is an English exam you need to take in order to work or study abroad. It assesses all 4 areas of the language: speaking, listening, writing, and reading. The thing about topics for the speaking part of the IELTS exam, is that they are extremely diverse and are taken from real life. You could get questions about: TV Programs, Insects, Sleep, Wild animals, Future, Traffic, etc. Now, the idea behind our show is simple: a native English speaker (Rory) answers questions from the most recent IELTS Speaking topics. We focus on providing people with model answers and vocabulary that (ideally) should help them in their exam.
Right now, our podcast now stands at 12 million total downloads, generating over 115k listens every week in over 145 countries (Top 5: Vietnam, Philippines, Russia, India, Germany). We upload episodes every Monday and on average, each one gets around 50k+ listens within the first 4 weeks, and around 60k listens in the first 6 weeks. Our audience is made up of people aged 18-44, learning English, preparing to study/work abroad.
