CEDEI has signed an agreement with the British Council of Colombia, making our foundation the official IELTS (International English Language Testing System) center in Cuenca.  Before, it was only possible for Ecuadorian students to take the exam in Quito or Guayaquil.  

The British Council is the United Kingdom's international organization for cultural relations and educational opportunities. It creates international opportunities for the people of the United Kingdom and other countries and builds relationships worldwide.  The IELTS exam is recognized by more than 8,000 organizations in over 130 countries around the world, including educational institutions, employers, governments, immigration authorities, and professional associations.

There will be one date each month for students to take the IELTS at CEDEI.  Later this year, CEDEI’s English Program will also begin offering an IELTS preparation course, in addition to our existing TOEFL preparation course.  These exams are important steps to study in places such as the United States, Canada, and Great Britain.
