If you plan to live and work in a country where the entire population or most of it speaks English, passing a special test cannot be avoided. To objectively assess the level of English proficiency among foreign citizens, Cambridge ESOL Examinations, the British Council and IDP: IELTS Australia have created a special universal test. An IELTS certificate is needed for every applicant planning to enroll in a university in Canada, USA, UK, New Zealand and other countries. It is also useful for young professionals who want to emigrate to these countries and find an official high-paying job there.
The certificate reflects the assessment for 4 different modules. The test shows the ability to read, listen, write and speak in English. Also, according to its results, an overall score is given. Taking the exam with interruptions takes 180 minutes, one hour of which is allotted for reading and writing, 40 minutes for listening and another 11-14 minutes for talking with the examiner. For many children and students, taking the IELTS is so stressful. But the International Union of Youth offers several courses that will help systematize knowledge, fill in the gaps and successfully pass the test.
Preparation for IELTS in one year
If there is a year left before admission or moving, it’s time to start intensively preparing for the international test. In 12 months, with the support of MSM, you can not only significantly expand your vocabulary and learn how to build sentences correctly. The course is focused specifically on those taking the test, so it will help to get rid of unwanted stress while passing it. It is also designed for prospective students who want to learn two languages: the program includes classes in Czech with native speakers.
In six months in Europe, you can also noticeably improve the level of proficiency in a foreign language. Even in 6 months, training at a comfortable pace will bring tangible results. At the same time, you will not feel tired, because lessons alternate with free time and exciting excursions around the Czech Republic. MSM provides students with everything they need for a comfortable life in an unfamiliar city: from mobile communications to their place of residence.
If time is short, and you do not want to break away from the educational process, you can get the most out of your summer vacation. Spending three months in sunny Prague, studying with experienced teachers from leading Czech universities, walking around the city and communicating with people from different parts of Europe is a good idea for those who are already actively preparing for the test, but want to immerse themselves in the language environment. MSM guarantees rich lectures and interesting workshops, and at the end of the preparatory stage – passing the test at the British Council.
