Default Language Proficiency - Language Test or Written Documents

Mr. Andrew Miller (and other experts),
I don't see any facility here in Texas where I can take IELTS or
CELPIP.
Should I take the test when I visit Canada sometime?
What kind of written documentations will CIC accept (my college
transcript, my published technical articles, etc.)?
Mr. Miller,
I spoke to you last year and you told me I pretty much scored 16,
would you vouch me? (just kidding).
Thank You

CELPIP test so far are conducted only in few places but IELTS tests are
almost everywhere. Find the closest British Council and ask them where and
when to attend IELTS test.

As you already know from our conversation and tons of my posts here the only
objective and guaranteed proof of English proficiency is IELTS (or CELPIP)
test result. And I strongly recommend taking one unless it is absolutely
impossible (not just inconvenient).

Hello Andrew,

My file is transeferred from India to Buffalo in Jan 2002, as I am here on student visa doing master's in engineeing program. Yesterday, I have got a note from IRPC, Buffalo asking me to submit the up-to-date information for my spouse and myself.

In that they did not mention about any thing about IELTS. Since, I have got acceptable TOEFL score as required by the canadian universities, do I need to prove my english proficiencey again?

I have sent a letter from the university authorities saying that I did not have to attend any english improvement course at the university, as I already proved it through my TOEFL score.

Any information in this reagrd will be highly appreciated.

By the way, I am doinng master's in mining engineering at Laurentian univesity, sudbury, Ontario


thanks in advance!

Regards

Damodar

TOEFL is not acceptable proof of English proficiency for immigration
purposes as it doesn't test all 4 abilities.

But as you are studying already for over a year in Canada and didn't need
any English courses processing officer may try to evaluate your proficiency
without IELTS - although I would have peace of mind only with IELTS or
CELPIP test results submitted.
