What is IELTS?:  IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is an English language test for higher education and global migration.  It measures the ability to communicate in English across four language skills: listening, reading, writing and speaking. It is designed for people who intend to study or work in countries where English is the main language of communication. Language skills are assessed on a scale ranging from 0 (non-user) to 9 (expert user).
