What is on the IELTS?


The IELTS ( International English Language Testing System) measures your capacity to use and understand English. The IELTS tests all four language skills – reading, listening, speaking, and writing.


There are two different type of IELTS test, Academic Training and General Training. Academic Training is the most common and popular IELTS exams. Academic Training is the test used for admission to undergraduate and postgraduate courses. General Training is the test used for work or migration.
