Here’s why IELTS is the best English test for work and study abroad

IELTS (the International English Language Testing System) is a test that assesses the proficiency of non-native English speakers. If you are considering going overseas for study, work, migration, or other personal life goals, taking IELTS will help you apply to your preferred school and get a visa or study permit in English-speaking countries.
