Do you realize that IELTS has a bunch of positive ‘BACHWASH’ (or ‘washback’) effects too?

Beyond just giving testimony to their level of English, the exam improves candidates’ 

• academic reading

• brainstorming

• writing

• reasoning

• note-taking, and 

• critical thinking skills

…among other, useful ‘XXI century’, transferable skills!

Do you ever remember to point these out to them? Why/why not? (And any other skill I forgot to mention??)
