What is IELTS?

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) assesses the English language proficiency of people who want to study or work where English is used as the language of communication. IELTS tests all four language skills – Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. The IELTS Speaking test is a face-to-face interview with a certified Examiner. It is interactive and as close to a real-life situation as a test can get. IELTS is jointly owned by the British Council; IDP IELTS; and Cambridge University Press & Assessment.

Why Take IELTS?

IELTS is the world’s most trusted English proficiency test. An IELTS test result is recognized by governments, organizations, and institutions across the world. Wherever you want to go, IELTS can help you get there. Find out who accepts IELTS results.
