The British Council in Vietnam has introduced the IELTS Fair 2019, to take place in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi on September 21 and 22, respectively. The fair gathers together top IELTS gurus, including leading experts from the British Council and famous Vietnamese teachers, ready to empower Vietnamese IELTS test takers for better success.

IELTS is one of the world’s most prestigious English certifications and succeeding in the IELTS test is a passport to a world of new opportunities for test takers whether they want to study, work or live overseas or are simply looking for career progression or broadening their social interactions locally and when traveling.

“Over 3.5 million people took the IELTS test in 2018, which makes it the most widely used high-stakes English proficiency test in the world,” said Mr. Andrew Burlton, Director of English Language Services at the British Council Vietnam.

“More than 10,000 organizations in over 140 countries and territories trust and seek IELTS, because it’s a reliable and valid test of real ability to communicate in English - whether for education, work, or immigration purposes. That’s why IELTS can unlock so many opportunities internationally.”

“As a proud co-owner of the IELTS test, the British Council is delighted to bring Vietnamese test takers an experience such as the IELTS Fair, to support them in achieving better success in their IELTS tests, and beyond that to grab opportunities to expand their global horizons,” said Ms. Nguyen Thi Thanh Hoa, Assistant Director at the British Council Vietnam.

The IELTS Fair was held for the first time last year and attracted more than 1,000 participants and nearly 30 IELTS partners who presented information sessions and exciting offers to get visitors prepared for their experience abroad. Building on the first year’s success, the IELTS Fair 2019 will be held again by the British Council in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi.

The IELTS Fair 2019, with the theme “IELTS - Passport to the World”, is organized by the British Council in collaboration with VTV7 - Vietnam National Education Channel and the renowned IELTS Face-Off show, to bring exhilarating experiences to Vietnamese test takers.

One of the fair’s highlights is the IELTS workshop series with well-known local IELTS gurus. In 30 to 45-minute sessions, each trainer will share valuable tips for prospective IELTS test takers to achieve better scores in the four IELTS skills of Reading, Listening, Speaking and Writing.

Participants are also invited to discover endless opportunities offered by the British Council’s many IELTS partners, such as English language centers, representatives from overseas study and immigration advisors, and representatives of embassies and consulates of the UK, the US, Canada and Australia in Vietnam. Brought exclusively to the IELTS Fair 2019, offers and information will greatly support IELTS test takers in Vietnam to open up a world of opportunities.
