This course is designed to bring students up to a 5.5 in all band scores.

Advanced level

At Advanced level, you will continue to improve your use of grammatical structures and key vocabulary across all parts of the test. You will receive intensive support in all skills during lessons and be encouraged to practice these extensively outside of class.
