It is an internationally recognized exam that tests English language competence.

How will the course help me?

Our IELTS Preparation courses will help you:
  • prepare for the IELTS exam
  • practice the type of questions you will face in the examination
  • understand the kind of answers the examiner expects from you
  • teach you the techniques to help improve your score
  • familiarize yourself with the test format and time restrictions

What LEVEL are IELTS Preparation courses?

To be eligible to join our IELTS preparation courses, you have to have a General English level that is equivalent to Advanced level. This is the minimum General English level required before you can do our IELTS Preparation courses. This is because the IELTS Preparation courses will not improve your overall LEVEL of English, but improve your exam techniques and strategies and help you get the best score that you can. Your foundation of English has to be quite solid before you should attempt the exam.

When are the IELTS Preparation Courses held?

Intensive courses are 10 hours per week for a total of 7 weeks per module, and are held during the week prior to the IELTS exam from Monday - Friday.
Regular Courses are held for eight weeks, classes two hours per day five times a week for eight weeks. Seats are limited and admission will be on first-come first-served basis. All you have to do is make an appointment for a placement test on any work days from 9.00 a.m. – 5.00 p.m. by coming into Ontario International College or by telephoning. We will assess your level of English and advise you on your eligibility. You can then register for any course in advance.
