Global Village Vancouver is an official IELTS test centre and a leader in Canada for IELTS preparation. This enables our students to prepare for the exams through one of our programs and take the exam on-site. Our IELTS preparation classes focus on both the Academic and General IELTS Tests.

Instructors use a vast set of resources that assist students in achieving their desired results. The instructors guide students through essential strategies for each section of the IELTS exam (reading, listening, writing, and speaking). The classes are centered on improving language skills and intensive test practice that builds familiarity with the format of the test itself. By offering intermediate and advanced full-time IELTS classes, we give students of different language abilities the appropriate class environment to maximize their study time.
