It’s impossible to imagine our lives without language as it is the only source of communication. It plays an important role in every aspect of our lives including immigration too. Moving to a foreign land is definitely not an easy task as an immigrant needs to adopt the new culture, lifestyle, society, language and more.
Everything on a foreign land sounds new and takes time to become adaptable to it. However, the candidate must learn the language of that country of which he/she is immigrating to in advance to avoid miscommunication there. In initial days socializing is important on foreign soil to understand people, their culture, and it can’t be possible without knowing their language.
Keeping all these in mind, the immigration authority of many countries like Canada make it necessary for the immigration aspirant to be well-versed in their respective languages. There are some world-wide accepted or approved language proficiency tests to evaluate the linguistic knowledge of the immigration candidate.
The International English language testing system (IELTS) is one of the most popular and trusted English proficiency tests across the globe to evaluate the linguistic knowledge of the applicant. It has four language abilities including speaking, writing, listening and reading based on which it evaluates the candidate who wish to settle abroad or planning to study in foreign universities.
Educational institutions, companies, and government immigration offices of different English-speaking countries like Canada, New Zealand, Australia and more use IELTS score card to rate language proficiency of the candidate. Cambridge ESOL Examinations (Cambridge ESOL), British Council and IDP jointly manage the execution of the test in different parts of the world.
It’s also required for the migration to Australia, Canada, UK and New Zealand
