IELTS stands for the International English Language Testing System. It’s an internationally recognised examination that every candidate for a Masters course in Brazil has to do. It is also a requirement for those who want to do a Masters abroad, with the exam qualification being accepted by universities all around the world. The orientation course is for those people who already have a solid (upper) intermediate English level and who need to learn about how to do the test. The course helps participants to develop the strategies in order to maximise their scores in addition to making them familiar with the exam's format, the models required in the writing and the language needed to get a good score.
