What is the IELTS?

IELTS, the International English Language Testing System, is an examination designed to assess the language ability of candidates who need to study or work where English is the language of communication.

IELTS tests all four language skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking. The Speaking test is a face-to-face interview with a certified Examiner. It is interactive and as close to a real-life situation as a test can get.

Research shows that IELTS motivates test-takers to develop real and well-rounded English rather than learning by rote. This means your understanding of English is improved and valid for real life in an English-speaking country.

IELTS is recognized by universities, such as Cal State East Bay, as a demonstration of English proficiency and by professional bodies, immigration authorities and other government agencies.

California State University, East Bay is an official IELTS Testing Centre and offers the test on campus every month.
