IELTS and TOEFL: International certificates
IELTS (International English Language Testing System) and TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) are two international English language certifications. IELTS is a very important certificate in Canada, as it is required both to attend an academic course and to apply for sponsorship or residency. TOEFL is needed for admission to college or to professional courses.
There are two IELTS modules:
- General: for admission to colleges (vocational courses) or for immigration purposes
- Academic: for university admission
Both IELTS and TOEFL measure your English level through different tests in the areas of reading, listening, writing and speaking. Preparation courses for these tests are designed to prepare students for the exams in the best possible way.
The level of English required for the preparation courses must be at least Intermediate. Courses start every Monday or every 4 weeks, depending on school calendars.
The IELTS score goes from 0 to 9. The test includes multiple-choice questions, short answers, gap-fills, short essays. TOEFL is mostly a multiple-choice questions test.
Both certificates are valid for 2 years.
CAMBRIDGE: FCE and others
Cambridge courses are generally the most comprehensive because they don’t just focus on test preparation, but are also all-around English courses. The main Cambridge exam preparation courses are:
- FCE (First Certificate in English) intermediate to upper-intermediate English level;
- CAE (Certificate of Advanced English) level of English from upper-intermediate to advanced;
- CPE (Certificate of Proficiency in English) level of English from advanced to proficient.
Courses last 10-12 weeks and begin every 3 months, so you have the same class throughout your whole course.
