I do enjoy answering questions about learning English from time to time. I often do this on Quora because users will reach out to me specifically for answers, and I receive the requests in my email. It is a great reminder. I just answered this question for a student and I thought it was a good one so I wanted to share it here with our wonderful World’s English learners and readers.

The question of the day: Which exam is better, the TOEFL or the IELTS, to get admissions into US or Australian universities?

Hello, I teach preparation for both exams and I can’t really say that one is better than the other. If given a choice between the two I will usually recommend IELTS. It is best to check with any US universities where you intend to apply because their requirements will vary. Some want TOEFL only, because it is the original US exam. Many will accept either test. IELTS is the most widely accepted in Europe and other English speaking countries around the world. Please get in touch if you’d like some insight on the exam.
