IELTS Academic

City Vancouver Academy’s IELTS program is designed for students who need to learn and improve your English language skills specifically for the IELTS exam. This program allows students to develop their English skills and IELTS test-taking skills in order to achieve the IELTS score they need (usually 5.5 to 6.5) to enter their chosen post-secondary institution. They will also gain academic skills required by the IELTS test such as note-taking during a lecture, reading actively, and writing and speaking in an organized manner.

LPI

The LPI exam is an English placement test used by many post-secondary institutions like the University of British Columbia, Simon Fraser University, University of Victoria, BC Institute of Technology, Langara College, Kwantlen Polytechnic University and Emily Carr University as well as the Real Estate Council of BC. Students are required to attain a certain LPI mark before they are allowed admittance into specific schools and/or the school’s mandatory English courses. First-year English is usually a prerequisite for graduation. We offer a LPI Program to prepare students for this important exam.

Our LPI program is designed to teach and enhance critical skills needed for the exam. We have a Pre-LPI course for less advanced or younger students to gradually prepare for the exam and a LPI Academic General course which is suitable for essentially most students.
