IELTS In The USA - IELTS Preparation Courses in Hong Kong


Are you planning to study in the USA? Then you need to get ready for the English entrance exam. An IELTS preparation course is the right choice for you to make sure you get the grade you want for entrance to your university or college course.

THE IELTS exam is now accepted for entry by more than 1000 universities and professional organizations in the USA including UCLA, University of San Fransisco, Columbia University and Duke.

It is also accepted by many universities in Hong Kong such as the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, The City University of Hong Kong and The University of Hong Kong to mention just a few. The Hong Kong Government also accepts the IELTS exam as part of its recruitment and promotion system.

Each year there are over 700,000 people taking the exam and using it as their passport for entry to university and also for immigration. The exam is held several times a year and you can retake the test after three months to try to obtain a better grade.

It is a four part exam which tests speaking, listening, reading and writing. It is geared to resemble the type of activities you will have to do in a foreign country. For instance, in part one of the writing test the academic version may ask you to write an report describing a set of graphs. The general training version, which is used for immigration purposes, tests your ability to write such things as a job application letter instead.

There is no pass or fail in the exam, but rather a grading system. Grades range from 0 (where the candidate cannot use English at all) to 9 (where the candidate is at the same level of English proficiency as a native speaker).
