International English Language Testing System (IELTS) Preparatory Course
What is IELTS?
IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is an English language proficiency test. Each year over 1.4 million candidates take the test for education or migration purposes.
IELTS is recognised by more than 6,000 institutions in over 135 countries, including the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and America.
IELTS has two different tests: general for migration or employment purposes, and academic for admission to college and university. Both types of tests have four sections that cover reading, writing, listening and speaking.
So if you are planning to migrate or study abroad or if you want to meet entry requirements for college, university or visa processing, IELTS is the best test to take.
