English is only the third most commonly spoken language across the globe, but it is easily one of the most desired languages in terms of study. That is, of course, because English is a language common to many industries and, of course, the most used language in many of the world’s most popular countries.
Learning to speak English, then, is something that many people who were not born in an English-speaking country want to do. And if you are one of those people, you might be interested in taking the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) Exam.
This exam is designed to facilitate English comprehension for people who are not very familiar with the language. Whether you want to travel to the United States to attend school or would like to work in a predominantly-English-speaking United Kingdom, this test can help you better assess what you know and needs work.
