The IELTS test

The International English Language Testing System is an English language certification that has great prestige in the professional and academic spheres. Because of its worldwide recognition, the exam is very often seen as an ideal gateway to study or work in an English-speaking country. In addition, a good test score is required for visa applicants in certain countries such as Canada, New Zealand or the United Kingdom. Those wishing to enter business schools or work in the communications industry should also take the test.

A comprehensive test, IELTS is a comprehensive test of your English language skills in the broadest possible way. To this end, four tests are on the syllabus: Listening (listening), Reading (reading text), Writing (writing) and Speaking (speaking). Each of these parts is marked, with the average of the four results obtained giving your final mark ranging from 1 to 9.
