The IELTS Preparation course develops students’ test taking skills for the IELTS examination.

Course objectives include:

  • Familiarize students with the format and directions of the test;
  • Familiarize and practice with the types of questions that are asked in each section;
  • Develop the English language skills that are necessary to be successful on the test.

Emphasis is placed on reading and the tested reading tasks; listening comprehension; addressing the speaking prompts; and special emphasis is placed on appropriately responding to the IELTS writing task 1 – a data commentary.

We use exercises that are designed to develop specific areas of English and test taking skills, as well as through practice IELTS tests.

Please note that this course alone does not satisfy the requirements for meeting the minimum hours of study required on a student visa.

Most students in the IELTS preparation course are also enrolled in the Intensive English Program and meet the requirements necessary to obtain a student visa.

The IELTS exam is offered in nearby Philadelphia and Baltimore.
