More Course Details

IELTS Course Overview

To succeed in the IELTS exam, candidates need both the ability to produce English at a high level and an in-depth knowledge of the exam, including its format and strategies. Through a combination of General English for IELTS and IELTS preparation classes, students on the IELTS course are able to improve their overall level of English, whilst simultaneously developing the necessary skills to obtain their desired score in the exam.

General English classes are based on the CEFR descriptors and cover grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation at each level, as well as reading, writing, listening, speaking and pronunciation. There is a strong focus on communication and in every lesson students have the opportunity to practise using new language in context.

In General English classes, IELTS students will:

· Develop subskills in reading, writing, listening and speaking
· Improve their range of vocabulary and grammar as well as improving their pronunciation in line with IELTS marking criteria
· Improve knowledge of how to use language correctly in context for IELTS
· Be provided with continual feedback on how specific language points can be used in IELTS
· Receive continuous feedback on language production and common errors
· Develop effective study habits to facilitate learning

IELTS preparation classes aim to familiarise students with the exam format and teach them the strategies and techniques they need to perform well and obtain a score which reflects their overall English level. Students will also learn specific academic vocabulary, and have the opportunity to put their existing language knowledge into practice in exam-style tasks.
