Road to IELTS

Road to IELTS: General Edition is the official online IELTS preparation and practice database prepared by the British Council, for people learning English who need to pass the exam for educational, immigration and occupational purposes.  IELTS is more widely accepted in Commonwealth countries, whereas TOEFL is more specific to the United States (TOEFL is not offered in Road to IELTS). The General Training format focuses on developing skills for going to English-speaking countries to do secondary education, work experience or other training programs.  All you need to access the site is your library card barcode!
