The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is designed to help you 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.
Your ability to listen, read, write and speak in English will be assessed during the test. IELTS is graded on a scale of 1-9.
IELTS is jointly owned by the British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and Cambridge Assessment English.
The IELTS “Short-Course”: Some Design Considerations
This workshop will discuss teachers’ experiences of managing students’ expectations around their needs for specific IELTS scores, and strategies for convincing students to improve their English before taking IELTS. Resources to help with this, and alternatives to IELTS preparation for students with lower language levels will be considered. Finally, the presenter and participants will examine and discuss ways to adapt two short IELTS course descriptions prepared by the IELTS partners for students at B2 level.
Essential Skills for “Reading” in the IELTS Reading Test
