In the International English Language Testing System which is abbreviated as IELTS, there are several tests which are different from one another. One of the tests is the B1 english test; it is a test which is used as a requirement for applications such as application to apply for a UK visa. People that need to demonstrate listening and speaking skills in English as part of their application to UK Visas and Immigration to get a citizenship or residence visa need to take this test.

The B1 level enters the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages which is often abbreviated as CEFR and it is equivalent to ESOL Entry 3 in the National Qualification Framework (NQF). This test includes speaking and listening tests and about general topics that often happen in daily life so that the takers or this test will be required to pass both of the tests in order to pass the B1 English test.
