IELTS Popularity Continues to Grow

The number of International English Language Testing System (IELTS) tests taken globally has grown 11% over the last year, for 2 million. Popularity of the IELTS test has grown year-on-year for the past eighteen years.

The rise in the number of tests taken also shows a rise in the number of organisations turning to the IELTS test to measure candidates’ English language abilities. More than 8,000 education providers, employers, professional associations and governments across 135 countries accept the IELTS certificate.

Zach Johnson, CEO of IELTS USA said, “Of the two million tests, the numbers of people taking IELTS to go to the US continues to grow and all of the Top 25 US universities accepting foreign students accept IELTS as proof of English proficiency.”

Demand for IELTS has grown significantly in China, India, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Turkey. Many students now choose to take the IELTS test in preparation of studying abroad in countries such as Australia, Canada, the UK and the USA.

John Gildea, Head of IELTS at the British Council said, “the phenomenal growth we’ve seen around the world is testament to the popularity of the test with test takers and the organizations that trust IELTS scores as an accurate indicator of a person’s ability to communicate in English.”

John Belleville, Head of IELTS at IDP IELTS added, “IELTS is maintaining its position as the most secure high-stakes English proficiency test available, and is available to people in more than 900 locations around the world.”

IELTS Scholarship Programme Extended by The British Council

2010 saw the start of The British Council’s International English Language Testing System (IELTS) scholarship programme which was such a success that is has been expanded for 2011. There will now be more than 60 scholarships available in ten different countries across Asia.

The scholarship programme is well balanced in that it awards scholarships to both students who intend to study abroad and at home. In Vietnam for example, there will be 13 scholarships for students planning to study overseas and a further ten for those intending to continue their studies in Vietnam. The scholarships are aimed at students from all walks of education, from high school to postgraduates.

Vietnam has also been given the opportunity to award one lucky students a very substantial scholarships of VND 100 million (roughly £3,200) in recognition of Vietnam entering the top 10 providers of students to the US.

In order that the scholarships remain transparent and to ensure that the funds will be used appropriately, the money will be given to the winning student’s future education provider, as a contribution towards fees and expenses.

The range of courses available to students who want a chance to win a scholarship is broad: any education provider which uses IELTS in its admission process.

For more information about the IELTS scholarship programme and an application pack please see www.britishcouncil.org/vietnam

Good luck to all that apply and happy studies.

The British Council Launches Interactive IELTS Service

This month the British Council has expanded the services it offers to online to English students of their International English Language Testing System (IELTS).

The British Council operates an online resource called Learn English, providing IELTS study materials. The online service has been expanded, offering further guidance, help and information for language students.

A big part of being successful in the IELTS exam – or any test for that matter – is to know what to expect and what kind of questions could potentially come up. Being able to the test material in some way will of course be beneficial and this has led to The British Council adding a range of interactive services to its Learn English service.

There are some fantastic video interviews with past IELTS students, providing future candidates with great insights into the system. There are also interactive mock tests that can be taken for all of the modules – reading, writing, speaking and listening – which is amazing and a fantastic use of the modern internet.

There are also video tutorials designed to guide candidates through the IELTS interview module and provides advice and tips from those language students who have already completed the tests.

With the IELTS being so popular internationally, the new materials provided through the Learn English service are well worth a look.
