IELTS Preparation Course

IELTS Preparation Course

IELTS stands for International English Language Testing Service. This test is used to assess your English language level for studying and working in an English language environment. Universities, employers, professional registration bodies and visa authorities often require a minimum IELTS grade to be achieved, on the 1 to 9 scale.


The test has four modules: listening, reading, writing and speaking. The course focuses on the tasks required in each of these parts and how to approach them effectively. Writing and reading homework, to practise and reinforce the work done in class, will be given in most sessions. There will be opportunities for speaking and listening test practice in class.


To benefit from this course, your English level should be B2 or higher.


Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, you will have improved your ability:


  • to hear and respond to a wide range of normal spoken English
  • to read and understand a wide range of English texts
  • to write concise and effective English
  • to learn and access a wider range of English vocabulary


The above course, if attended regularly and with commitment, will prepare you well for the IELTS Test.
