We offer different formats of IELTS preparation courses, depending on your availability, objectives and language entry levels. If your level of English is "intermediate", we recommend that you combine General English courses in the morning with IELTS preparation sessions in the afternoon. It offers expert guidance on how to pass the IELTS exam at a high level while allowing students to gain fluency and confidence in English and 21st Century communication skills. If you feel that your level is more advanced, you might prefer a full-time or part-time IELTS preparation programme depending on your time table. The IELTS course is aimed at students who want to prepare for the exam. As a package, this is the perfect course to prepare not only for an exam, but also for modern life, studies, and international careers.
The IELTS exam has a very specific format with in-depth instructions and a complex scoring system. For students to achieve a high score in IELTS, it is vital that they not only have good language skills but that they also understand the exam they will be taking. The afternoon component of a General Language/IELTS package ensures you have plenty of time to take practice exams and mock tests, and with the option of adding on a further 5 lessons of guided exam practice, you can study at your own pace with the support of an experienced IELTS teacher.
