Course overview

The work done in class is based around a specialist IELTS course book and supplementary material is also used, particularly from authentic sources such as newspapers. The syllabus includes a range of topics which are relevant to the test.

On this course you will study the four skills - reading, writing, speaking and listening – as they relate to the academic IELTS test, as well as specific task types necessary to do well in the test.

Speaking and Listening

This component of the course is an extra opportunity for fluency practice.

Afternoon options*  

Grammar and Writing 

This class will help you to improve your grammatical accuracy and develop your writing skills. You will be able to plan the grammar areas and writing skills you need or would like to study with your teacher and other group members.

Grammar areas chosen may include past, present and future tenses, conditionals, gerunds and infinitives, comparatives and superlatives. Writing areas may include essay structure, paragraphing, language register and context, sentence linking and appropriacy. This course is especially popular with students who wish to improve their written skills for their careers or for entry to a British university.

 

 

Afternoon options*

Word power

This is an integrated skills class aimed to improve your vocabulary and the way you discover, record and use new vocabulary. You will have lots of practice using new language and will focus on using known language correctly. 

We will reinforce new areas of vocabulary through a variety of skills work. The main focus will be on the accurate production of the language in terms of meaning, form and pronunciation, and vocabulary acquisition strategies.

Areas covered may include: idioms, compounds, colloquialisms/slang, phrasal verbs, word-building, recording vocabulary, dictionary skills, easily confused words, metaphor, synonyms/antonyms, and prepositions.

Exam skills

This course component focusses on improving your writing skills as they relate to exam preparation.

* Note - there is an extra charge for the afternoon options

IELTS Pre-Test

If you decide to take an IELTS preparation course, we will send you a pre-test to decide if you have the appropriate level to join the course. If the pre-test is successful, we will enrol you on the course but entry still depends on you performing to the same level on the placement test you take at the school on arrival.
