IELTS TEST: a Student’s Fear and Dream
What is the IELTS test? Do you need it? What for? Who can help you prepare and take it? Confused about it? Well, if you are asking yourself all (or some) of the above questions, perhaps we can help you understand whether you need to take it or not. First of all, IELTS stands for International English Language Testing System. It is a test which was specifically designed for those who want to reside or work in an English-speaking country. It’s officially recognized in the UK, Australia, Canada, Ireland, South Africa, New Zealand and the United States as a linguistic verification for admission to university courses or a document required, amongst the many, for migration needs. Basically, sometimes, if you are applying for a work visa, professional recognition or for permanent residency in one of the above countries, you might be asked to provide this certificate. Therefore, you will need to take it. Where? There are many locations. London is one of them. So, once you have attended the course and taken the test, you will be assessed and placed within a “band”. Here they are:
Band 9 – Expert User: someone who has complete operational control of the language.
Band 8 – Very Good User: someone who has a total operational control of the language with only occasional inaccuracies.
Band 7 – Good User: someone who possesses operational control of the language, even if with occasional inaccuracies.
Band 6 – Competent User: someone who generally has an effective command of the language despite some inaccuracies.
Band 5 – Modest User: someone who has partial control of the language, managing to understand the general meaning on most occasions.
Band 4 – Limited User: someone whose basic competence is limited to family situations.
Band 3 – Extremely Limited User: someone who communicates and understands only the general meaning.
Band 2 – Intermittent User: someone for whom no real communication is possible except for very basic information.
Band 1 – Non User: someone who, essentially, has no ability to use language, with the possible exception of a small number of isolated words.
Band 0 – Did Not Attempt The Test: someone who got scared and run away… Who can help you? Schools. In London and everywhere in the UK there are many and you will surely find the one that suits you.
