EIKEN Exam Preparation
International Gateway Kelowna is the only school in Canada offering EIKEN. The current program runs until the end of June.
EIKEN is an abbreviation of Jitsuyo Eigo Gino Kentei (Test in Practical English Proficiency), one of the most widely used English-language testing programs in Japan. It is offered at 7 levels: Grade 1, Grade Pre-1, Grade 2, Grade Pre-2, Grade 3, Grade 4, and Grade 5. The total number of candidates since 1963 exceeds 95 million. EIKEN can be used as a language skills certificate for study abroad as it is recognized in approximately 400 universities and educational institutions in North America, Australia, and throughout the world.
The next Eiken program begins on October 21, 2019 (Grade 2) for 9 weeks (12:45-2:55pm) at IGK’s trendy downtown campus.
