IELTS and me

Learners discuss their reasons for taking this course
I can basically goes everywhere– even I can go to America to study in American university for my postgraduate degree. Because with that high IELTS score, I can be accepted in most of the institutions. In the future, I hope that English can help me. The first is to be accepted in the MBA course, and then to find better jobs with higher salary and benefits. And then the most important thing that I like is travelling around the world. I like travelling a lot. It’s going to be very helpful in my future study and my future career, because I’m going to study and live in the States in the next two years.
For the future, I really want to become a computer scientist, yeah, to work for companies like Google or Microsoft. I want to take a course in America. Interior design or architecture, I don’t know. Something about drawing. I believe that if anyone takes IELTS and gets the required band score needed, in most speaking English countries in the world, you would do well, because it’s generally accepted.

There are lots of reasons for taking the IELTS test, with study, work and immigration among the most popular.
