"My experience has been very great because my academic English skills improved a lot and I could meet many people from different countries and cultures. This fun and challenging class increased my academic knowledge and prepared me for further studies!"

Yu-Chun, Taiwan (IELTS-VIP)

"The teacher provides lots of details and tips of the IELTS test. Weekly individual speaking tests and feedback greatly helped me to improve. I got an overall 7.0 in my actual test and I have already successfully applied for a Post-Baccalaureate Diploma program at a Canadian public college. VanWest IELTS class made my dream came true."
