Learning a new language is fast becoming one of the top skills that employers look for when recruiting new employees. The world is fast becoming increasingly globalised and more companies than ever are doing business in multiple countries around the world, but they can’t do it without hiring cultured and linguistically adept people.
IELTS stands for the International English Language Testing System.

In under three hours, the IELTS test assesses the full range of your English skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing.
