Passing the IELTS in Geneva

Passing an internationally recognised English exam such as IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is a definite asset on a CV. The Wall Street English centre located in Geneva allows you to take the exam and prepare for it in excellent conditions. You will thus have the opportunity to obtain the best possible score for the exam.

The IELTS test

IELTS is a widely recognised certification in professional and academic circles and is often indispensable for working abroad or entering an English-speaking school. A good test score is also required for those wishing to obtain a visa for Australia, Canada, New Zealand or the United Kingdom. A high score on this test will also give you the opportunity to apply for a job where professional English is a requirement, such as in the business or communications sector.

IELTS is a general English language test that checks the overall level of candidates' written and spoken English. Accepted in 140 countries, it consists of four separate tests requiring specific skills. These include Listening (listening), Reading (reading texts), Writing (writing) and Speaking (speaking). A mark is given for each of them, resulting in an overall average between 1 and 9, which determines your level.
