General English + IELTS Exam Preparation

The course

The IELTS Exam Preparation Course is ideal for students who:

  • want to study at an English speaking University
  • want to study for an internationally recognised exam in English

The morning General English classes will focus on the 4 main skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing. These are relevant to the 4 sections of the IELTS exam. These lessons will be course book based. The third hour focusses on practical English and study skills to help you use the English you have learnt.

In the afternoon, classes will be focussed on the IELTS exam and the skills you will need to gain a better score. Classes include regular practice tests with individual feedback and advice on how you can improve. We can also offer individual advice for students about your options after the exam.

Due to the small size of the classes teachers can personalise the classes to suit your individual needs.

Key facts

All course materials are provided including practice IELTS tests.

You will receive a certificate at the end of your course stating your level according to the Common European Framework.

Taking the IELTS Exam

We are happy to help students book the IELTS exam at a test centre nearby. This normally needs to be done 1 month before the exam and costs, on average, £200 for the test. Please note in the summer the exam gets booked up quickly. To see the dates of the exam please go to the IELTS website
