Why study IELTS at our school?
Come to our school and take a free test to see what your level is. This will help you decide which type of course is suitable for your needs. Below is a correlation of different exams to CEFR levels. Our test will show you your present level of English competence so you will be able to choose the length and intensity of the course that will help you reach the desired level. For example, let's suppose that the university you have applied to requires a 7.0 IELTS score. If you have obtained a B2 level certificate, and our test indicates that your IELTS score is 6.5, you will not need a very long or intensive preparation. If, however, your score is 5.0, you will probably need a lot more work.

You can choose the number of lessons you want, when and how often to have these lessons. For example, do you need an intensive course or a more relaxed course?
Your tutor will work with you to decide which areas of the language you want to concentrate on. In the IELTS exam, you will be examined on the four basic skills: Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. You may decide that you require more help with one basic skill, as opposed to another.
ONE-TO-ONE OR GROUP LESSONS
You can choose whether you want to learn on your own or in a small group. You may form a group with your friends, if you want.
If it is not possible for you to have a lesson at the school, you have the option of having the lesson online, with the use of email and/or SKYPE.
GET EXTRA PRACTICE ONLINE
When preparing for the IELTS exam, the more you practise, the better you get. You should set aside 1 or 2 hours a day to practise and improve all your language skills. The following sites offer very good online help and guidance. A combination of school work with online help is the most effective way to improve as fast as possible.
