The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is the world’s most popular English language proficiency test for higher education and global migration, with over 3 million tests taken in the last year.
IELTS, the international English Language Testing System, is designed to assess the language ability of non-native speakers of English who need to study or work where English is the language of communication.
There are two Modules; Academic and General Training. There are four sub-tests, or modules, to the IELTS test: Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking with a band score of 0 to 9 for each module. The Academic Training Course is for candidates who wish to pursue their higher education overseas, whereas the General Training Course is for immigration and training requirements in UK, Australia and Canada.
IELTS assesses all of your English skills — reading, writing, listening and speaking, and is designed to reflect how you will use English at study, at work, and at play, in your new life abroad.
The IELTS test is developed by some of the world’s leading experts in language assessment. It has an excellent international reputation, and is accepted by over 10,000 organizations worldwide, including schools, universities, employers, immigration authorities and professional bodies.
IELTS is the most widely accepted English language test that uses a one-on-one speaking test to assess your English communication skills. This means that you are assessed by having a real-life conversation with a real person. This is the most effective and natural way of testing your English conversation skills.
