internationally recognized and understood. Candidates are tested in Listening,
Reading, Writing and Speaking. All candidates take the same Listening and
speaking Modules. There is a choice between Academic and General Training in the Reading and writing Modules. The first three
modules: Listening, Reading and Writing must be completed in one day.
There is no break between the modules. The speaking module may be taken,
at the discretion of the test center, in the period of seven days before
or after the other three modules.
