Course Overview

Exam Preparation

IELTS

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. Our IELTS course prepares you with the necessary skills and techniques needed for IELTS examination.


This course will help you improve and develop your academic reading, writing, speaking and listening skills, and will focus on specific exam techniques and strategies to help you work towards your desired IELTS band.  


CAE & FCE

Our Cambridge Exam Preparation courses are designed to help you develop the necessary skills and strategies to help you realise your potential in your chosen Cambridge Exam. During the course, you will learn how to do all parts of the exam well - reading, writing, listening, speaking, and use of English – as well as learning invaluable exam techniques and strategies.  In addition, you will also have the opportunity to take mock exams with previous Cambridge exam papers.


Students must be at least B1 level to enrol onto an Exam Preparation course. We advise students to study exam preparation courses alongside one of our General English courses.  We recommend a minimum of 40 hours preparation time. Please contact us to arrange a placement test to find out your level*.
