IELTS assesses all of your English skills — reading, writing, listening and speaking, and is designed to reflect how you will use English at study, at work, and at play, in your new life abroad.

The IELTS test is developed by some of the world’s leading experts in language assessment. It has an excellent international reputation, and is accepted by over 9,000 organisations worldwide, including schools, universities, employers, immigration authorities and professional bodies.


  • Learning exam techniques and becoming fully familiar with the test itself. The test assesses proficiency in the four macro skill areas of reading, writing, speaking and listening. IELTS style reading and listening texts cover a wide range of topics and during the course emphasis is placed on broadening the students’ general knowledge to help them to make meaning from a range of commonly encountered topics.
  • Increasing students’ vocabulary. Vocabulary plays an important role across all four macro skills and students are encouraged to increase their knowledge by recording new words and continual recycling of vocabulary throughout the course assists retention.
  • Opportunities to practice exam tasks. The IELTS writing tasks are quite specific and students will be given opportunity to practice the exam tasks and be encouraged to use self correction techniques to further improve their writing skills.
  • Ample opportunity in class to discuss issues arising from reading topics providing opportunity for further vocabulary development and to practice IELTS type speaking tasks. Study the IELTS Preparation Course in Melbourne and enhance your speaking today!
