IELTS exams - proof of your English skills
The IELTS is your international „English driver's license“ for success in education and employment. When it comes to a coveted college place in the US and Canada, or your dream job „down under“, there is no better alternative than IELTS.
IELTS – International English Language Testing System
Some 1.4 million people yearly prepare for a business or private stay abroad with the internationally recognized IELTS test.
It is required by universities and colleges particularly in Great Britain, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand as a prerequisite for admission, and many professional bodies require it when granting a work permit.
The exam is conducted in over 1,100 test centers in 120 countries. If your level of English is sufficiently good, a preparatory course for IELTS is not strictly necessary. However, it makes sense to familiarize yourself thoroughly with the quite demanding test procedure in advance. The examination lasts about three hours and tests listening, reading, writing, and speaking skills. The final mark ranges from 1 („non-user“) to 9 („expert-user“).
