IELTS British Council, the world-class English language training centre for every Filipino

They say the grass is greener on the other side. For many Filipinos, a life abroad is a life brimming with possibilities, and dreams of studying, working, and living in another country are dreams worth chasing. As for me, I always wanted to take my PhD at the London School of Economics, it has been a lifelong dream, well, next to being a Chevening Scholar that is. To make these a reality, one of the requirements is taking a language assessment test to prove they can speak the language used in the country they want to go to. For English-speaking countries, this means taking tests like the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) test.

The IELTS test, like other English language tests, requires preparation for takers to be able to achieve their desired scores. The British Council, one of the co-owners of IELTS, provides test takers with support and guidance for taking their IELTS test, including centres where they can get the necessary support and resources to help them prepare for the test.

On May 18, 2018, the British Council launched the Learning Hub. It is a new centre for learning English and preparing for English tests, particularly IELTS, where individuals can avail of reliable resources and high-quality services that can help them better prepare for their test and achieve their best possible IELTS score.

”The British Council Learning Hub is a creative and inclusive space for individuals to gain new knowledge and skills that help improve their performance in the IELTS test, in turn enabling them to reach their goals,” said Nick Thomas, Director for British Council in the Philippines. ”It makes use of the British Council’s 75 years of experience in English language teaching and assessment to provide a world-class facility for improving one’s English proficiency.”

Among the Learning Hub's offers are the IELTS One-day Preparation Workshop, which familiarises takers with the test; lELTS Exceed Writing Workshop, which prepares takers for the writing part of the test; IELTS Pre-tests, a simulation of the actual test; IELTS Orientation, which discusses the test format, modules and question types in the test; and the [ELTS Library, where registered IELTS test takers can access ILLTS books, practise test materials, audio CDs, and other resources.
