"IELTS 1001 ways", a new fun and educative mobile app by British Council. Download it here

"IELTS 1001 ways", a new fun and educative mobile app by British Council. Download it here | British Council Italia | Scoop.it

British Council IELTS launches the 1001 Ways mobile application and celebrates the diversity of the English language.

Developed by British Council IELTS and available since November 11 on Google Play, 1001 Ways is a new application that celebrates the world’s accents and the universality of the English language.
With short videos and a unique message—There are 1001 ways to speak English— this fun and educational application gives users the chance to become accent experts by guessing the accents of inhabitants of different regions of the world. Users can also record and share their own accents to be part of the quiz.

The application is part of British Council IELTS’s aim to celebrate the differences in accents that can often confuse English language test candidates. It wants to show them as an asset to the English language and tell the world that command of English
is the gateway to a world of opportunities. The IELTS test takes candidates’ different accents into account and, in its listening tests, offers audio materials that illustrate this diversity.

The 1001 Ways application is also part of a global multi-channel campaign launched in April 2014 and rolled out in over 25 countries on five continents. This major image and awareness campaign emphasizes the universality of English as the language of
communication and the diversity of its spoken expression.

IELTS (International English Language

Testing System) is the world’s most popular English test. Recognized by over 9000 educational, employment and immigration organizations, IELTS is the only test accepted for immigration purposes in countries that require one.

Designed by internationally
renowned experts in English-language assessment, IELTS gauges English skills in the most reliable and consistent way possible.
