Courses Information for IELTS

This course is specially designed for students planning to take an IELTS preparatory course. The course focuses on the General and Academic modules and bridges the gap between general English and the IELTS test. There is a focus on developing the vocabulary needed for the topics that often appear in IELTS, and there is a specific focus on developing writing skills. English and the IELTS test.

IELTS Express A is a course for learners who need to review or learn grammar and also build their range of vocabulary. There is a focus on writing sentences and paragraphs with accurate grammar and vocabulary. The speaking module encourages you the opportunity to practise the grammar and vocabulary that has been learnt. There is also a focus on reading and listening skills so that students feel more confident and are more able to quickly find answers to questions. 

After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • understand and know how to approach all four parts of the exam
  • write clear and strong topic sentences and develop coherent paragraphs
  • speak more confidently
  • use a wide range of vocabulary and grammar relevant to the exam

IELTS Express B is a comprehensive and intensive course for IELTS preparation. By understanding clearly what the IELTS examiner is looking for from the speaking and writing parts, we prepare students with the language and skills that they need to tackle these two parts of the exam successfully. Students are given ample opportunities to practise their speaking with feedback provided and therefore develop their confidence. Feedback is provided on a range of writing tasks to enable them to cope with all the question types. Students learn how to read texts and find answers to questions quickly using a variety of reading techniques. When students approach the listening test, we teach them how to anticipate answers to questions, listen for keywords, and learn effective exam strategies. 

After completing this course, students will be able to :

  • use techniques, vocabulary, and grammar to score well on the IELTS exam
  • manage their time during the reading and writing parts of the test
  • recognise and respond to the different types of questions in all parts of the test
  • study in our higher level course, Advanced IELTS, to achieve higher scores. 

The highest level IELTS course offered by our school, this course focuses on language skills and test-taking techniques, and in addition helps students use higher level vocabulary and grammar. Generally speaking, there is a greater focus on Writing and Speaking as we find that students at this level benefit more from teacher input on these ‘productive skills’. While there is often less focus on the Reading and Listening aspects of the course, these too are dealt with thoroughly, and students are encouraged to practice these ‘receptive skills’ in the study lab.

The success of this course is reflected by the fact that we are happy to offer a guaranteed minimum score of 6.5, but in fact most of our students score much higher than this.

After completing this course, students will be able to :

  • confidently handle all types of questions in the listening and reading tests consistently well
