I've never heard about Cambridge Examinations and IELTS, but both are well known in Europe.

On the other hand, TOEIC and TOEFL is familier in Japan.

Some of young Japanese wives who are enthusiasic for learning English attend the class for the Cambridge examinations.

My Enlgish teacher didn't allow me to attend the class due to lack of my English.

To my surprise, she didn't know about TOEIC and TOEFL. (She is English, by the way.)

When she knew that they have only reading and listening tests, she said, "It seems like a test that the Japanese love it." (She is always sarcastic.)

Cambridge Examinations and IELTS have also speaking and writing tests, which is important to evaluate one's English.

I took TOEIC and TOEFL 15 years ago!

If I took such a kind of test now, I couldn't focus on it for a long time.

I am getting rusty.

I know having a specific goal for learning English is very motivated, but I'm a mediocre housewife and If I went back to Japapan in a few year, (I'm living in Holland because of my husband's work)I wouldn't use English.

I don't know much about Cambride Examinations and IELTS, so I would be appriciated if someone would give me advice.
