About Testing & Test Preparation

This test is available in two forms, General or Academic, and is for students who wish to pursue studies at a college or university that requires the IELTS. The ELS IELTS Test Preparation course focuses on the fundamentals of language (listening, reading, writing and speaking), which are the focus of the test itself.
