Numerous understudies join EF English Live so they can work on their English and ideally take a test to show their dominance of English. Be that as it may, choosing which test to take can be intense: TOEFL versus IELTS? Both the tests have 4 areas: perusing, composing, talking, and tuning in. Here are a few solutions to the most widely recognized questions understudies could have and ideally this will assist you with concluding which test is ideal for you.
Which one is more straightforward?
This is the most well-known question that understudies ask me. The response is not one or the other. Both of the tests are similarly troublesome, however picking the right one for you could cause considering to feel more straightforward.
What schools check the score out?
This ought to be one of the greatest game changers for you while picking a test. If you have any desire to concentrate on anyplace in Europe, accept the IELTS test as schools need to know your score for IELTS. If you have any desire to concentrate on in North America, then accept the TOEFL test as American colleges need to know your score for the TOEFL test.
Which English do you speak, American or English?
You might have to think prior to responding to this inquiry. Assuming you watch Hollywood films, you are paying attention to American English. On the off chance that you are don’t know which English you talk, look into certain words that are different in American and English (for instance, ‘lift’ and ‘lift’) and figure out which words you utilize more. In the event that you talk more English, think about taking IELTS, yet on the off chance that you talk more American English, think about the TOEFL test.
Could you at any point type quick?
This probably won’t be an inquiry that everybody contemplates, except I feel it is similarly significant. The composing part of the TOEFL test expects you to type a paper and on the off chance that you are bad at composing or are not happy with composing, then take the IELTS test since it will be completely transcribed.
How long might you at any point sit for a test?
Numerous understudies experience difficulty sitting for significant stretches of time during a test and this is something else to think about while picking. The TOEFL test is four and half hours, and the IELTS test is two hours and 45 minutes. So to take the TOEFL, you should be ready to sit for extensive stretches of time.
So assuming you have taken the TOEFL or the IELTS, let me know your thought process of the test. Was it troublesome? Do you wish you had taken the other test? Enlighten us your considerations regarding the tests.
