IELTS Preparation

IELTS is the International English Testing System. It is an examination which is done all over the world and is trusted in more than 10,000 organisations globally. It is a recognised qualification that is reputable amongst educational institutions, employers, governments and any professional environments nationally and internationally. It’s one of the most popular courses we have, and it gets filled rapidly. IELTS measures the ability of those who want to study or work within an English speaking environment or country. It is graded with a nine-band scale to categorise the levels of linguistic proficiency. The highest band is nine and the lowest is one, nine being an expert and one being a non-speaker.

The two test versions of IELTS are:

  • Academic IELTS – For those who want to apply and progress within their higher educational needs or start their journey within a professional environment.
  • General IELTS – For those whose first language is not English and they need to understand the basics of English itself.

Both IELTS Academic and General Training offer a useful and accurate assessment of four highly essential language skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking.
