Indian Students with Top IELTS Score Fail To Speak English

HI INDIA NEWS DESK

An investigation has been launched by the Gujarat police after six Indians failed to speak in English before a US court. Interestingly, all of them had a top score in the English proficiency test IELTS.

Earlier in March this year, the men were caught entering the US on a boat from Canada.

The probe has been launched on the request of American authorities, according to news agency PTI.

The six people, aged between 19 and 21, were caught from a sinking boat in the Saint Regis river in Akwesasne, US, close to the Canadian border.

When produced before a court in the US, these men failed to answer in English the questions asked by the judge. The court was baffled as these students had scored 6.5 to 7 bands in IELTS.

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is a standard test of English proficiency for non-native speakers of the language, with a good score being necessary for admission in good colleges in several countries.
