What is IELTS?

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is an internationally recognized English Language certificate which certifies your ability to study or work in Greece and abroad. The exam consists of four sections (Listening, Reading, Writing, Speaking) and differs from other Lower or Proficiency exams as it examines language use without focusing on grammar and syntax. For this reason and taking into account the needs of Greek students, LinguaTerra has developed a targeted methodology, placing more emphasis on speaking and writing so that you can be properly prepared and achieve the score that will be your passport to the University of your choice.
