If you are a Canopus client and are looking for IELTS information, you’ve come to the right place!
Here are some of the common IELTS questions we get asked, along with answers.
Where can I take the IELTS exam?
There are hundreds of IELTS exam centres all over Canada and you have quite a few options no matter where you are in the world. Here is the exam registration link: https://www.ielts.org/book-a-test/find-a-test-location
The exams are available every month, all year long, but it is always better to take the exam at least 6 months before you need the results to avoid any stress if you are using your results for immigration or academic purposes.
What is my current level?
Often people can converse in English, but they do not know how this translates into their performance on the IELTS exam.
We have a free exam simulation to help you see which level you are currently at for listening and reading. There is also a speaking and writing simulation which will help you get an idea of what the real exam is like for those two areas.
If you take the simulation and need to move up 0.5 to 1 Band to get the score you need, sign up for our course! If you take the simulation and need to move up more than 1 Band, it is a good idea to work on your English foundation by taking general English classes. Then, once you have a solid foundation of English, take our IELTS course!
How can I prepare for the IELTS exam?
This is where English Exam Prep comes in to help!
You probably already work in an English-speaking environment or studied in English, which is great for building your English-language foundation. What we do is help you to demonstrate your English foundation in an exam-setting by helping you to understand how the exam is formatted, what the examiners are looking for, and most importantly, how to strategize to make sure you obtain the highest score possible.
We are based in Montreal, but offer our classes live or by video that you can access any time.
Here is a schedule of our upcoming classes, including an outline of the lessons you will work through if you choose to join us.
What if I am a beginner in English?
Our lessons are only for intermediate and advanced English-users, so if you still need to build an English foundation, you will need to continue your general English studies. Most of our clients continue with their English studies while they are taking our IELTS training so that they can maximize their time.
After you are at an intermediate level, then we can help you with your IELTS exam.
