TIE - Test of Interactive English


Welcome to IELT - Interactive English Language Tests Ltd.

We are responsible for the management and administration of the Test of Interactive English (TIE) and the English Test for Academic and Professional Purposes (ETAPP).

The Test of Interactive English (TIE) is an international EFL exam developed in Ireland by a group of Irish English language professionals under the aegis of the Advisory Council for English Language Schools (ACELS), a government agency which was responsible at that time for quality assurance in English language teaching. TIE can be taken by junior and adult students on either short or long courses in Ireland as well as abroad.  For more information on TIE please click here.

The English Test for Academic and Professional Purposes (ETAPP) was developed, trialled, and piloted to exacting standards by IELT in collaboration with ACELS and under the guidance of international experts in the field of language testing and assessment. It has been specifically designed for students who wish to study in a third level institution and for professionals who wish to enhance their professional profile by demonstrating a competence in English. For more information on ETAPP please click here.
