CamSur residents benefit from free IELTS Review Program
To help boost the overseas employment of residents of Camarines Sur, a free Gov. Migz International English Language Testing System (IELTS) Review Program was offered to over 30 residents of the province.

An orientation was held on October 21, 2019, where reviewees learned the basic requirements of the program and how they could prepare themselves for the actual IELTS tests.

Gov. Migz IELTS Review is one of the programs of the Information and Communication, Archives and Records Management Office (ICARMO) through the Camsur Public Employment Services Office (PESO) and Southeast Asian Institute of Computer Technology (SEAict) as its education and training arm.

IELTS measures the language proficiency of those who want to study or work outside of the country where English is used as the primary language of communication. Under the program, two modules are offered, namely, Academic and General Training. The reviewees shall undergo four modules and will be tested on all four language skills: listening, reading, writing, and speaking.


“I got to know the free courses being offered here in SEAict because of my friend who took English Proficiency Program (EPP). I was also encouraged to take EPP and while enrolled, I realized that there are still more programs being offered for free and one of them is IELTS. Because it is related to my course which is Secondary Education major in English, I didn’t hesitate to take it since I also have a plan of working abroad and teach the English subject,” shared Anilyn Ulpina, one of the reviewees of the program.

Anilyn, who resided in Caramoan, also co-managed a resto bar and among her guests and customers are the casts of Survivor Philippines who speak English. While most of the time they speak in English, her knowledge in IELTS could also help her enhance further her skills in speaking the language.

“Big thanks to Gov. Migz Villafuerte because I wouldn’t have to spend money for review in other agencies, which would cost approximately P7, 000.00,” added Anilyn.

The review schedules for IELTS are Tuesdays to Fridays from 8:00-12:00nn, Mondays thru Fridays from 1:00-4:00pm, and Saturdays from 9:00-4:00pm. The duration for weekday class is six weeks from October 22 to November 29, 2019 and twelve Saturdays from November 9 to January 25, 2019.

For those who wish to also avail of the free review program, just visit the SEAict office located at Ground floor, Camarines Sur Trade and Investment Center Building, BMC Road, Panganiban Drive, Naga City. Kindly ask for available schedules, fill in the necessary forms, and wait for a text confirmation.
