IELTS Practice and Preparation Courses
If you are planning to study at a British University or if you are an overseas-qualified professional person such as a doctor, lawyer or
nurse, planning to work in the UK, you will probably need to take an IELTS test as part of your work application process. Our Practice
and Preparation Course will familiarise you with all the sections of the test and will help you to acquire the knowledge and skills you
need in preparation for the IELTS test.
The course materials have been chosen to provide you with useful strategies and techniques to help you to approach all sections of
the academic test confidently. It will familiarise you with the format of the test and with the level and style of English required in
each section giving you plenty of opportunity to improve your skills in:
Listening for general and detailed information
Reading for gist and for detailed information
Writing discursive essays and writing based on diagrammatic information
Speaking about personal experience, current affairs and cultural topics
