Mastering proficiency in the English language to score higher and succeed in varying degrees of life
Kuwait, 18 August 2019: Owing to growing demand for IELTS (International English Language Testing System) in the country, the British Council, one of the co-creators of IELTS, is offering the world’s most widely recognised English proficiency test. Backed by acceptance from worldwide universities, British Council helps participants reach the required level through training in four sections: reading, writing, listening and speaking skills.
British Council has deployed internationally trained English experts adept in IELTS exams, to help students learn test-taking strategies to help maximise their test results, receive feedback on individual strengths and areas needing improvement through practice tasks. As the Ministry of Higher Education is open for scholarships presently, students can use the opportunity to advance themselves to receive the required scores. Teenagers or adults interested in pursuing diverse prospects can apply under different levels ranging from pre-intermediate, intermediate and upper-intermediate, depending on the stage of proficiency required.
The IELTS Academic test measures whether one has the level of English language proficiency needed for an academic environment. Additionally, it reflects some of the features of the academic language and assesses whether they are ready to begin studying or training. British Council encourages individuals to take the test if they want to study at an undergraduate level anywhere in the world, apply for Tier 4 Student Visa at a university or work in a professional organisation.
Moreover, one can choose between paper-based or computer-delivered IELTS Academic for added convenience backed by the option of several dates to choose from and quicker response on results than any other. British Council is committed to providing all with the support needed to acquire the essential test results, through the provision of free unlimited access to ‘Road to IELTS’ Last Minute course.
The course includes nine videos which gives advice and tutorials, 100 interactive activities and two IELTS Academic practice tests for each of the four skills. Accommodating every step of the education journey, participants can find preparation materials such as videos and online lessons, as well as preparation books, face-to-face courses, seminars and workshops.
