Hi, my husband is looking to do his English test in preparation for his visa application, what test have others done? My Immigration Lawyer has said the IELTS test, which when I looked it says the IELTS Life Skills at A1 Level, which seems to be a relatively new test, has anyone else done this? Just wondered how they found it. His English is very good, spelling not so much but is improving with my help :) xx

Spelling is not important as he's not supposed to write and I advise you to look at videos on YouTube, just type "A1 level english tests" and they help a lot.

It's an easy exam and the examiner asks simple questions just to see if he's able to communicate

And the listening one I presume will be easier in the actual exam so he can write notes on his question paper rather than having to squint and struggle on his little iPhone screen!! X

He has to listen to two short records and will be asked a general question to one of these records. Then before listening to the records again the examiner gives him the second question. And he will be given pen and paper to write down whatever he wants.
