Many of our students have the same problem.  They need the IELTS exam, but their English level is Pre-Intermediate or below.  To study a full IELTS course, we recommend that your level is at least Intermediate.  However, we can still help those with lower levels.  Our Academic English with IELTS provides a combination of General English, skills development and a daily IELTS workshop. The workshops help you maximise your IELTS score by giving you techniques and strategies even if you have a lower level of English.  They will help you develop effective ways to expand your vocabulary and give you an insight into which topics are common in the exam.

*Please note, the school requires sufficient student numbers to start a class, so some classes may be subject to cancellation or may not run all year round. The minimum number of group class size is 4 students. If a class does not have 4 students, then students will be given options to enable them to continue studying.  This may be converting the tuition fees to semi-private lessons or adding their name to a waiting list until the minimum number is reached.  Usually however, two similar levels are combined into one class to avoid disruption or inconvenience for the students.
