Many international institutions and immigration authorities require you to take the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) test to prove that you can speak, write, and communicate in English. This standardized test not only helps people get into universities abroad but also enables native speakers of English to get better job opportunities in other countries. Of course, their access to such institutions or jobs depends on their IELTS results. Fortunately, IELTS Training Centre in Dubai offers IELTS courses.
Before deciding which course to choose, it is important to note that there are two types of IELTS exams in Dubai depending on your needs. The General IELTS module is usually required for those wishing to migrate to countries such as Canada, Australia, and the UK. The Dubai IELTS course is usually chosen by those who want to study at universities and colleges in Western countries.
Both modules test candidates’ skills in four main areas: reading, writing, speaking and listening. Your performance is assessed on a ten-point scale and you are given a score indicating your level of proficiency in English. Please note that there is a fee for the IELTS test in Dubai.
