Why do an increasing number candidates wishing to study in Korea choose IELTS?
(1) Demonstrate your ability to communicate in a face-to-face Speaking test.
Unlike other language proficiency exams where you are required to talk to a machine during your Speaking test, IELTS gives you the opportunity to talk with an examiner face-to-face in a relaxing and supported environment.
(2) Develop skills relevant to your studies and student life.
IELTS places emphasis on your ability to communicate in authentic situations. There is no need to memorise large amounts of unnecessary vocabulary or grammar. Rather, IELTS includes learning how to communicate in a range of scenarios you will encounter in learning environments. This will empower you to reach your full potential in your studies and student life.
