IELTS Preparation

Students have to take the Initial Assessment and Placement Test before course enrollment.

A trained bilingual native speaker will conduct a quick administrative assessment of your English proficiency to effectively determine which course and level would best meet your learning needs followed by a more professional initial assessment of your listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills administered by an experienced multilingual on-line educator. After determining your English proficiency and personal study preferences, a custom study plan will be created to reach your desired English proficiency level in a timely manner.

This course focuses on preparing international students for the academic module of the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) and developing all four language skills, giving students an introduction to the requirements of the IELTS examination. Students will learn skills and strategies that will help them in the exam, including cultural awareness, computer skills, presentations techniques and interview strategies, and at the same time, improve their overall English proficiency through the systematic study of English grammar and academic vocabulary. Perform with confidence as you identify main and subordinate ideas in written texts, summarize, organize, and describe IELTS related information, and finally improve your coherence and cohesion in writing and speaking. Understand English spoken by native speakers at natural speed and answer questions as required by the IELTS exam.

Both live instruction in a virtual classroom and supplementary interactive language lessons will raise your confidence while conversing in the target language as a native-speaking teacher assists you in building your fluency level in English. Thematic lessons geared towards specific contexts and situations will ensure that you are able to not only survive in a full immersion environment but also thrive as your English proficiency dramatically improves. This course stresses communication between both students and teacher in the target language as the medium of communication. English improvement is 100% guaranteed.

NOTE: Upon course completion, students are highly encouraged to further pursue their studies in English. Both verbal and written feedback about course performance will be provided to the student and kept on record for future evaluation. Letters of recommendation for outside institutions are also provided upon request.
