Getting to know IELTS
Rodolfo Caranti & Seth Sokol
IELTS is the wildly popular and exponentially growing international standardised test of English. In this session, Rodololfo, the IELTS administrator, and Seth, who teaches the monthly IELTS exam preparation course, explore what IELTS is and why it is important to teachers and students of English.
This session presents the exam in its historical context, details the the exam format, and argues that this is the test many of our students need, even if they don’t know it. As Rodolfo explains, to be an internationally mobile global citizen one needs two things: IELTS and a passport.
