    The author may consider taking IELTS with the British Council. IELTS stands for International English Language Testing System. This is a test that measures the language proficiency of people who want to study or work in countries where English is used as a language of communication. The IELTS Academic test is suitable for entry to study at undergraduate or postgraduate levels whereas the IELTS General Training is suitable for those applying to train or study at below degree level.

    The British Council offers IELTS Preparation - Regular and IELTS Preparation - Intensive courses. IELTS is on the UKVI list of approved Secure English Language Tests (SELT). In case IELTS test result is required as part of the application to UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI), then the applicants need to take the test at a specific test location authorised by UKVI.

    Detailed procedure of registration for the test and other details can be seen at the website of the British Council -

    There is no Government-certified short-term course for learning British English. However, it must be remembered that in schools and colleges of India, we learn British English. So far as English conversation is concerned, the author may consider joining a good institute in his/her city which trains for IELTS.
