What is IELTS?

IELTS is the International English Language Testing System, established for 25 years, with over 2.2 million tests taken globally in the last year. There are two main types of IELTS test, the General and the Academic, plus a version designed for the UK Home Office, called SELT (Secure English Language Testing) if you need to know which test is right for you:
