IELTS Preparation (Advanced)

Cricos: 087715A

The aim of the IELTS Preparation Program, which is student-centred and outcome-based, is to prepare international students, from diverse backgrounds and nationalities, for the Academic IELTS test.

Preparation for the IELTS Examination is achieved by introducing the student to the same kinds of texts and tasks which the IELTS exam uses.

The program is not only designed to help the student to practise examination techniques, but it will also help them to develop the necessary skills required to achieve an optimal IELTS test score.

The student will be exposed to a range of activities including whole class activities, group and pair work, individual tasks, excursions, a variety of materials related to speaking, listening, reading and writing to provide full preparation for the IELTS exam.
