EC English IELTS exam for the month of May 2014

Saturday 17 May 2014, EC Cape Town (authorized testing center for IELTS exam) hosted a large group of  candidates for the monthly IELTS exam. With a staggering number of 44 candidates, the  Supervisor and Invigilators for the day handled the pressure with the utmost professionalism. The day started off on an excellent note, with candidates coming in bright and early in anticipation for what the day holds. Candidates were calmed of their nerves and were  reassured that everything would go smoothly .Although a fairly large group, the day proceeded to go by quickly and the relief on the candidates faces as they left were reassuring to the staff that they were positive about the outcome of the day and more importantly the IELTS exam. We had a few of our very own Academic english students writing the test, when asked how they felt about the outcome of the test some were very excited and knew that they would do well as they studied hard and had excellent moral support from their teachers and family members, where as some of them said if they could they would change a few of the answers they selected. Despite this they all walked out of the testing rooms with a broad smile, being positive is key after all!  Below is some general information regarding the IELTS exam and also the next available dates for the test: IELTS or ‘International English Language Testing System’ is one of the world’s leading tests of English for higher education, immigration and employment.

IELTS vs General English

Many students come to ask the Academic Department about the IELTS class and how it’s different to the General English classes.

You can expect to be exposed to subjects like Sociology, Science, Architecture and History. We recommend that students spend at least a few weeks in Upper Intermediate before joining the class, so that they feel confident in their English ability.

The course is best suited to students who need to achieve a particular score, either for a job or in order to enter university. Here’s what Nadia had to say: During my journey here at EC Cape Town, I had the opportunity to join the Advanced class and the IELTS class. I immediately recognized that the classes were totally different. You join the General English class without any pressure and this class helps to improve your English. Depending on the teacher and the number of students in the class, it is up to you to decide what to talk about and which exercises to do. Everybody has a different personal goal to achieve, as opposed to the IELTS class. There, every student has the same aim! The lessons are very structured. You speak about specific topics and get exactly prepared in how to pass the exam. And you get an official certificate, which you can attach to your CV.  The IELTS class is … Read more
