“Last Saturday, I took the IELTS test at GEOS Calgary. I would say that's an excellent place to take the IELTS test. Firstly, I like the desks very much, which are big rather than just a small chair with a board that is only partly in front of you. Secondly, clocks are fixed high on the wall, you can check the time very easy. I don’t like when the clock is at the bottom of the blackboard. If you are unlucky to sit some chairs behind other candidates, you will feel unhappy because it is difficult to see. Thirdly, I would say it is easy to go there because GEOS Calgary is next to a downtown C-train station.” Jason, China
