The International English Language Testing System, or IELTS, is an international standardised test of English language proficiency for non-native English language speakers. Here are some interesting facts about the IELTS:
- IELTS is the world’s most popular English language test. More than two million IELTS tests are taken each year.
- Taking IELTS opens doors – it can help you live, study and work around the world. More than 9,000 organisations in 140 countries accept IELTS, including government, academic and employment institutions.
- IELTS is the only English language test accepted for immigration purposes by all countries that require one.
- If you are applying for a visa to move to or stay in the UK, IELTS is on the list of approved secure English Language Tests. You can find more information in the IELTS for UK Visa and Immigration section of the British Council website.
From January 2021, our private institute Y.E.S. will be offering a 2-semester course that aims at preparing the students to take the IELTS exam. All skills of the English language will be practised (reading, writing, listening and speaking) in small groups. Ample material (books, handouts, etc.) will be provided throughout the course, but supplementary material can also be found in our library at Zena Palace building. To apply for the course, you need to fill-in the Application Form and pay the 10-euro fee.
