Learning foreign languages for immigration.
Knowledge of a foreign language at a sufficient level is the first step when moving to another country. Let’s figure out what opportunities exist for learning languages and the subsequent passing of language tests.
If you want to immigrate to another country, the first thing you need to do is to learn a foreign language. In theory, everyone understands that English is needed to find work more quickly, to adapt quickly to a new place or to be banal in asking the way to the nearest “library”. You can try to drop these statements and say that everything will learn faster in the language environment. In part this is true, but in practice everything is more complicated.
Delivery of the language test.
Many countries when sending documents for emigration or admission to a foreign institution require the results of a language test. It can be IELTS (International English Language Testing System), TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), TEF (Test d’Evaluation de Francais), TEFAQ (Test d’Evaluation de francais pour l’acces au Quebec) and t . P.
The explanation is in plain language how to count the passing score in the Express Entry in 2017.
The test lasts several hours. Usually it consists of 4 parts: spoken, written, reading and listening. After a few weeks, the test results for each of the categories become known. The more scores the tester gets, the higher his chance of immigration.
IELTS test taking.
The IELTS certificate is the most popular in the world. There are 2 varieties of the test: Academic IELTS and General Training IELTS. The first is necessary for admission to the university of English-speaking countries, the second – for those who chose another way of immigration.
For the IELTS exam, you can get an estimate of 1.0 to 9.0. When moving to Australia, points are given only for knowledge of English at the level of IELTS 7.0. For Canada, depending on the chosen program, this is 4.0-7.0.
Each version of the IELTS test is unique and does not contain repetitions from previous versions. The certificate is valid for two years, and you can re-take the test unlimited number of times. The Academic IELTS exam is conducted 48 times a year, according to the General Training IELTS – 24. The exam costs an average of 3500-4000 UAH in Kiev and up to 5000 UAH in other cities of Ukraine.
What is TOEFL.
TOEFL – the most popular test for admission to universities in Europe, America, Canada, etc. You will not be enrolled in a foreign university or college with only a minimum of knowledge of the language.
Please note that the TOEFL results are not accepted by Canada for immigration.
At the moment, there are two options for taking the TOEFL exam: paper-based test (PBT) and Internet version (internet-based test, iBT). The latter is considered preferable and is used much more often. The maximum score that can be obtained upon the surrender of iBT is 120, PBT is 677. The results of TOEFL, like IELTS, are valid for two years from the date of passage. The cost is 160-250 dollars.
Studying at language courses in Canada.
To better prepare for immigration, we recommend at least a month to live in another country. For example, if you are planning to emigrate to Canada, then it is ideal to go to study English in Toronto or Vancouver, and French – in Montreal. It is better to live in a family or in a hostel, in order to practice the language as much as possible and discover a different culture. Literally in a few days you will be more tolerant of other nations and get used to a lot of accents.
We cooperate with language schools ILAC and GEOS and are their official representatives.
4-week intensive language program with accommodation in the family, 3 meals a day, flight and insurance will cost approximately 2500 USD.
Learning English in Kiev.
We have long been looking for good English courses in Kiev for ourselves. We want to recommend a school that really liked. This is The Language Village. It provides English courses for beginners, conversational English, business English, preparation for IELTS and TOEFL. Individual classes with a teacher and corporate courses for companies are also possible. In addition, The Language Village has a free conversational club that is happy to meet anyone who wants to overcome the language barrier or just talk with native speakers.
The school has two offices in Kiev: near the metro station “University” and the metro station “Poznyaki”. The cost of the courses is 3000-4500 UAH for 4 months of training. Preparation for TOEFL and IELTS costs 7500 UAH for 25 lessons of 90 minutes.
French courses in Kiev.
Those who plan to move to France or Quebec, should like the school Bonjour Francais. Here you can tighten up your level of the French language, as well as prepare for DELF, DALF, TEF or TEFAQ. Bonjour Francais also has a talking club where you can get used to speaking with native speakers, learn how to express your thoughts in French and learn a lot about the culture of French-speaking countries.

If you do not live in Kiev or simply do not want to leave the house – it does not matter! You have the opportunity to learn English on Skype together with the online school Skyeng. The advantages of this approach are obvious. You do not adjust to the schedule of group sessions, and you choose the time of lessons based on your wishes and possibilities. The staff of the school will select a teacher for you, focusing on your interests, hobbies and psychological qualities. And most importantly, lessons are held individually, so that the result from training will be felt much earlier. All Skyeng tutors have undergone rigorous selection and are constantly upgrading their qualifications. The site is developed on a unique platform and contains an online tutorial, exercises to better consolidate materials and many more useful features for easy language learning.
