A few days back, The British Council introduces to media personalities and online influencers the language assessment test that is IELTS or International English Language Testing System, to prove that the applicant can speak the language used in the country they want to go to.

The IELTS test, like other English language tests, requires preparation for takers to be able to achieve their desired scores. The British Council, one of the co-owners of IELTS, provides  test  takers  with  support  and  guidance  for  taking  their  IELTS  test,  including centres where they can get the necessary support and resources to help them prepare for the test.
