IELTS for Beginners

Thousands of Filipinos every year fly to other countries to work or study. There are great opportunities abroad that one simply cannot miss. Processing visa applications can be a bit time- consuming and expensive, most especially the part where you have to take the International English Language Testing System examination (IELTS).

I am currently working as a nurse here in Canada, and I know the feeling of being clueless about this examination. Two years ago, I was processing my papers and this was the part I had the most difficulty with. Why? Simply because I did not have any information about the IELTS. Last week, my cousin, who is also a nurse, called me and asked me about the said examination. I should say that it brought back a lot of memories. Being clueless about the test can be a huge disadvantage.
