What is the difference between IELTS and TOEFL- Part 2

Difference
in Intent
One of the many differences
between the two is the intent. The main intent of the TOEFL is to evaluate
whether or not the test taker can speak, read, understand and write English, good
enough in order to attend the college in an English speaking program. The questions,
reading material, and listening material are all designed as well as taken from
an academic college level.
While there are two versions of
IELTS, one is designed for students acquiring admissions in colleges and
universities, simply opting for further education, and, other version named
General Training which stands for people who are looking ahead to an English
speaking country for immigration or for work. Many companies who are looking to
hire non-native English speakers need to know whether their employees are capable
enough to speak English, and they require a test to show this. Australia and
Canada require those who are immigrating to their countries to pass the test as
part of their citizenship requirements.
