The Canadian Department of Immigration and Citizenship accepts IELTS scores for migration purposes, student visa applications and many other visa programmes. Also, Most Canadian universities and colleges accept IELTS for admission purposes.

The TOEFL program is designed to help students develop the language skills such as speaking, reading, writing, and reading that are required for the TOEFL exam. This program will also instruct our students in test strategies and critical thinking skills so that they can gain confidence in test preparation.

The TOEIC program certifies skills in business English from beginner to advanced. It can help to build confidence in understanding the content of complex text, expressing opinions accurately, or communicating clearly with native speakers.

The Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program is a new test designed by the Government of Canada. The test is used to determine your eligibility for permanent residency or citizenship in Canada.

IELTS

IELTS International Test Preparation 

The IELTS (International English Language Testing System) examination is an ideal test for those students who are planning to study with us to prepare for a university course. The Academic IELTS examination is recognised as an entrance requirement by British, Australian, Canadian and New Zealand universities as well as for secondary, vocational and training programmes worldwide. This examination allows you to achieve an international qualification in academic English, as well as giving you proof of your English abilities for employers and visa purposes.

There are two types of IETLS exams: Academic and General Training. Both exams assess your English language skills in listening, reading, writing, and speaking.

All test takers take the same Listening and Speaking tests but different Reading and Writing tests.

IETLS Academic

The IELTS Academic test is suitable for those wanting to study in an English-speaking environment or university (higher education). You can also take IELTS Academic for professional registration purposes.

The test measures if you are ready to begin studying in English. It features vocabulary that is familiar within an academic setting.

IELTS General

The IELTS General Training test is suitable for those applying to study below degree level. This includes an English-speaking school or college. It can also be taken for work experience or other employment training.

IELTS General Training is also required for migration to Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the UK. The test features everyday English language skills that you will need in social and workplace environments.

Our IELTS program prepares you for either test.

Make sure you prepare for the correct exam.

TOEIC

TOEIC Test Preparation

TOEIC - the Test of English for International Communication - comes from ETS (Educational Testing Service), just like the TOEFL test. However, unlike the TOEFL, which is more geared towards the academic language, the TOEIC test focuses on English in the business world.

It is used as a certification tool by 5,000 companies around the world and assesses listening and reading comprehension in business English. The test is particularly popular with international companies, as it makes it possible to compare the language skills of every employee. Many also use the test to evaluate the effectiveness of training measures.

 

According to ETS, over 4.5 million people sit this examination every year. The test is approximately 2.5 hours and is divided into a listening section (45 min), and a reading comprehension section (75 min), each with 100 questions.
