If you want to study at a university in the United States, you must obtain a visa, which will depend, in part, on being able to communicate in the language with a minimum level of English of B2 .
But what does B2 mean? This is a level that corresponds to people able to communicate effortlessly with native speakers, which implies at least an 80% understanding of what they can hear in everyday life.
The B2 level is the same level that is usually requested to study in higher education institutions in Canada or Australia. Instead, those seeking a career in the UK must pass the IELTS exam with a score of between 5.5 and 7.5 depending on the university and discipline.
And is a B2 enough to study in the United States? Not really. Many universities require a certain TOEFL or IELTS score for new entrants from non-English speaking countries.
To cite just one example, Florida International University requires a score of 6.5 on the IELTS or 550 on the TOEFL written test and 80 on the online test (iBT).
And those levels are really possible for a foreign student? Of course! At Lingua Language Center , we prepare those who seek to enter the different universities in the country with everything they need to pass the TOEFL , but we also offer facilities so that they can previously come to Florida to learn the language with us.
