What is an IELTS Exam Preparation Program?
IELTS stands for the International English Language Testing System. The IELTS PREPARATION PROGRAM at GV Victoria focuses on both the IELTS Academic (AC) and General Training (GT) modules. Learn important test-taking strategies for each section of the IELTS test: reading, listening, writing, and speaking.
We also offer FREE monthly IELTS Preparation Seminars on how to prepare for an English exam such as the IELTS test. The IELTS preparation courses we offer at Global Village have been extremely helpful for our students in reaching their goals, like attending a college or university throughout Canada and abroad, or immigrating to the country of their choice. We would be happy to help you as well!
