Course Introduction

The International English Language Testing System, or IELTS, is the most widely accepted English language test used by academic institutions around the world. It assesses whether students are ready to begin studying or training in an environment where English is used and reflects some of the features of language used in academic study.
Aimed at high-school students planning to enroll in universities abroad or international programs in domestic universities where English is the language of instruction, our IELTS program follows a four-term yearly schedule with each session meeting for three hours and led by a native instructor. This program introduces them to the different sections of the IELTS Test as well as providing them tips and strategies along the way. The program refines their test-taking skills with constant drills focusing on areas that need improvement. After getting the required test scores, students can then join CAC (College Admission Counseling).
