Which is better to take: TOEFL or IELTS?

According to Inside Higher Ed “The most significant difference between the two tests is how they test for speaking ability. With the IELTS, the test taker actually speaks with a human being who is trained to evaluate fluency and conversational ability. With TOEFL the test-taker essentially speaks to a computer, the conversation is taped, and then six reviewers grade the session. IELTS maintains that its test is more realistic, and TOEFL claims that because it has only one tester/grader during this section of the exam, the IELTS is more prone to manipulation and has inadequate quality control."

What is the content of IELTS?

IELTS has four parts – Listening (30 minutes), Reading (60 minutes), Writing (60 minutes) and Speaking (11–14 minutes). The total test time is 2 hours and 45 minutes. The Listening, Reading and Writing tests are done in one sitting. The Speaking test may be on the same day or up to seven days before or after the other tests. To find out more and see a test sample, go to http://www.ielts.org/test_takers_informa...mple.aspx.
What is the difference between the Academic and the General Training IELTS?

a. Academic – Institutions of Higher and Further Education
The General Training format focuses on basic survival skills in a broad social and educational context. It is for those who are going to English-speaking countries to do secondary education, work experience or training programs. All candidates take the same Listening and Speaking tests but different Reading and Writing tests.
