Frequently asked questions about exam preparation courses

How do I know what my level is and what course I should take?

All of our partner schools offer an evaluation test on the first day or pre-arrival. They usually divide students into groups based on current ability with the target language, which is vital to help you feel at ease and ensure you make consistent progress. It’s also what will make the course effective and interesting. To best advise on how you can reach your objectives and tailor courses to your needs, ESL also offers this service during your consultancy interview.

Can I take the exam at my chosen destination for my course abroad?

Some of our partner schools are also test centers, so you will be able to take the exam at the same school where you do your exam prep course. If your chosen school doesn’t offer the test, our ESL expert advisors will help you choose the right dates to be able to take the exam in your destination ideally straight after the course.


 

How long do exam preparation courses last?

Exam prep courses typically last between 4 and 12 weeks. However, the length of your course will largely depend on the level you want to have recognized, your current level and the amount of work you want to put into your studies during your time abroad. Our ESL consultants will be able to give you a realistic time frame based on your level, preferences and goals.
