English is an international language. To learn English, we need some packed of tips and advice. So that we can improve our speaking become more fluent and confident with our English. However, without guidance, we cannot learn proper English.

There is a wide choice of learning English, The IELTS and TOEFL. The IELTS and TOEFL exams are recognized by English language students worldwide. Both exams are used in universities to measure the English language ability of candidates. IELTS is generally used in the UK and Australia and also accepted by most American and Canadian universities. TOEFL is used largely by American universities. However, it accepted in the UK and Australia.

There are some Major in Differences between the IELTS and the TOEFL.

1. Reading

TOEFL: It has 3 to 5 reading selections of twenty minutes each. Reading materials are academic in nature. The questions are multiple choices.

IELTS: It has 3 reading selections of twenty minutes each. Resources are, as in the case of the TOEFL, related to an academic setting. There are multiple type questions like gap fill, matching, etc.

2. Listening

TOEFL: The listening selection is very different from the IELTS. In the TOEFL, it has you 40 to 60 minute substance of listening selections from lectures. Then take notes and reply to multiple-choice questions.

IELTS: The main difference between the two exams is listening. In the IELTS exam, there is an extensive variety of question types, as well as exercises of different lengths.

3. Writing

TOEFL: There are two written tasks are required on TOEFL, and all is done on the computer. First task includes writing a five-paragraph essay of 300 to 350 words. Taking notes is very important in the second task. They ask you to take notes from a reading selection in a text book and later a lecture on the similar topic. Then you are asked to reply using notes by writing a 150 to 225 word selection mixing both the reading and listening selection.

IELTS: The IELTS has two tasks also. First task is a short essay of 200 to 250 words. The second tasks are writing task and ask you to look at a chart and summarize the material accessible.

4. Speaking

TOEFL: The speaking sections it is totally distinct. In this section, you are tested to high responses on a computer of 45 to 60 seconds to six different questions created on short descriptions or conversations. This section lasts 20 minutes for the task.

IELTS: The IELTS speaking lasts only 12 to 14 minutes, and takings place of a judge. There is a little warm up exercise. It consists of small talk and lastly, an extended conversation on a related topic.

Although Educational Testing Service touts the Test of English as a Foreign Language, or TOEFL, as the best measure of English language proficiency in the world, university and college admissions offices are also increasingly using the International English Language Testing System, or IELTS, for admissions purposes. Before you begin reviewing for either test, learn the differences between them, including price and availability, test format, score types and which colleges accept each test.

Every student needs professional academic assistance too and that is a great website that offers professional academic assistance, they write resumes too.
