English is spoken at a useful level by a quarter of the world population. That’s over one and a half billion people.
It’s the world’s language of exchange, communication and business – to just a name a few areas. So, to speak English is to open yourself up to a world of opportunities.
If you’re planning to live, work or study using English you will often need to prove your ability to use it.
IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is the world’s most popular English language test. More than 10,000 organisations in 140 countries accept IELTS, including schools, universities, employers, immigration authorities and professional bodies
More than 2.9 million IELTS tests around the world are taken each year.
Taking IELTS opens doors. It can help you live, study and work around the world, including USA, UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand.
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.
Employers and universities want you to be able to use English in the real world, so IELTS is what you will need to prove it.
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.
Whatever your plans in the world, IELTS will help you achieve them.
