If you are planning to bring your Thai wife to the UK, you will need a British spouse visa. One of the critical requirements of this visa is that it must be able to speak and understand a certain level of English. This must be proved by passing the A1 (IELTS) English test.
The A1 English test
The A1 English test assumes that the applicant is able to speak a basic level of English, enough to have a basic conversation, and enough to quickly understand much more in an environment where only English is spoken , It is intended as a platform and a good starting point that will be of use to your wife for the future.
What changes were made to the A1 English test?
The A1 English test is now known as IELTS Thailand Test
An additional test is the IELTS Life Skills Test, which targets applicants with A1 or B1 levels of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). This test covers both speaking and listening
