Students will learn about the requirements of each component of the IELTS exam. The course will focus on the strategies needed in each part of the test, reading, writing, listening and speaking. The lessons are communicative, with a lot of interaction, pairwork and groupwork. There will be plenty of exam practice and students will develop the academic skills required in order to pass the exam.
All students take a placement test on the first day of the course, followed by regular progress tests and mock IELTS exams. Teachers give continuous feedback on students’ progress. There are regular one-to-one tutorials which give students the opportunity to revise their learning goals and discuss their strengths and areas for improvement.
For this course, we have a maximum class size of 15. This allows students to benefit from a personalised and interactive learning environment.
