IELTS Preparation

IELTS Preparation

Prepare for the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) exam, or choose one of the Cambridge English exams with a course designed to develop all your English skills and improve your exam technique. IELTS is recognised by thousands of institutions in over 135 countries and can help you improve your job prospects or gain entrance to university. The Cambridge exams are accepted by schools, universities and employers worldwide. As you prepare for these exams, you’ll also develop your language knowledge through fascinating topics and cultural activities.

You will study in a general English group for three hours per day, developing your understanding and ability to use English by participating in topic-based General English morning classes. With our experienced, friendly qualified teachers and our dynamic classes, you will expand your academic speaking, reading, writing and listening skills. We will also help you to begin to prepare for TOEFL, PTE or IELTS tests, by looking at exam questions and strategies and trying timed practice tests. As a pre-foundation student, you will also benefit from our guided learning at home programme and in small classes, individual tutorials and our excellent modern facilities.

This concentrated course provides thorough preparation for the examination: essay writing, fluent and accurate speaking, describing and interpreting graphs and charts and practice in the receptive skills of reading and listening. You can register for the examination at the school. Examinations are scheduled for the Saturday after the end of the course but places are subject to availability. We will assist you to make alternative arrangements if necessary.
