The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is designed to help people work, study or migrate to a country where English is the native language. This includes countries such as Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK and USA. IELTS is an internationally recognised test for determining the English proficiency of non-native English speakers. Thousands of education and training providers all over the world use IELTS results to select their students. Many professional registration bodies and employers rely on IELTS as proof of English language ability. This course is an introduction to IELTS for people who would like to improve their English language reading, listening, writing and speaking skills.
