Foundation level

Students will need to have an intermediate level of General English before joining an IELTS foundation class. This course will continue to improve your general English language skills and expand your vocabulary on key IELTS topics. You will become familiar with all parts of the test and develop strategies to improve test skills.

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. You will have regular practice tests, many under exam conditions and be given approximate band scores to assess your progress.

This course is designed for students who already have an overall IELTS level of around 5.5 and who need to achieve 6.5 or higher.
