Boost your career: for jobs abroad or in an international company or organisation in Belgium, an IELTS certificate is often compulsory. And even if it is not, such a diploma surely enhances your CV and career opportunities.
Study abroad: if you want to study in England, Ireland, the USA or in another European country (Erasmus and other programmes), you will have to prove your English skills with good IELTS results or a C2 Proficiency certificate.
Be challenged: with a clear goal you will be more motivated to improve your English. Our experience shows that people who join IELTS preparation classes progress on average more quickly than those who attend general courses.
