Exam Preparation Course
This exam preparation course is aimed at students who want to prepare for the IELTS exam. IELTS is the high-stakes English test for study, migration or work. The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) measures the language proficiency of people who want to study or work where English is used as a language of communication. It uses a nine-band scale to clearly identify levels of proficiency, from non-user (band score 1) through to expert (band score 9).
IELTS is the standard English language level exam for many academic institutions and companies all around the world. IELTS is available in: Academic - for people applying for higher education or professional registration, and General Training for those migrating to Australia, Canada and the UK, or applying for secondary education, training programmes and work experience in an English-speaking environment. Both versions provide a valid and accurate assessment of the four language skills: listening, reading, writing and speaking.
Our IELTS preparation course offers a blend of General English and exam techniques so that you can improve your English level while getting ready for the exam.

Do I have the right level?
The first step is to do our online test. After that you will have a little chat with Tamara Leacy, our Director of Studies, and she will be able to tell you which of the levels above you should start from. If you are not ready yet, we will prepare a package for you to help you achieve the required level before you start your preparation course.
We offer both host family and residential accommodation to all our students.
