IELTS is the International English Language Testing System, designed for people who want to study where English is the main language of communication. Results from IELTS tests are recognised by universities, colleges and professional bodies in the UK, USA, Australia, New Zealand and throughout the world. IELTS gives you a test report that shows an overall score for your level of English ability from 1 (non-user) to 9 (expert user).
Our IELTS Preparation course consists of 25 hours of English language skills including specialist lessons for exam preparation and exam skills plus one individual coaching session per week. You can start every Monday throughout the year. Our IELTS courses are built around a strong course structure that supports the learning and guides progress. We measure this progress clearly and visibly to highlight strengths, needs and objectives.
The test is made up of four parts – Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. The Speaking test is a face-to-face interview with a certified Examiner. The total test time is 2 hours and 45 minutes and consists of:
Academic Reading: 3 sections, 40 items, 60 minutes
Academic Writing: 2 tasks: 150 words and 250 words, 60 minutes
