The IELTS (International English Language Training System) is the standardized test that Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) recognizes as proof of English language ability for immigration purposes.
Some Canadian immigration applicants are required to take the IELTS to demonstrate that they have sufficient English language ability to integrate into Canadian society and the Canadian work force.
Take this opportunity to practice your English and familiarize yourself with the IELTS test. Canadavisa has 8 free IELTS practice tests available – 2 Listening, 2 Reading, 2 Writing, and 2 Speaking. These tests were prepared by IELTS professionals and will give you a good sense of what the IELTS test will be like. (Please Note: Due to the nature of the tests, only the Listening and Reading tests can be automatically graded.)
