IELTS Prep Course
February 1- March 11, 2021

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) Academic test is an internationally-recognized English language proficiency assessment which helps students meet post-secondary admission requirements.

Our accelerated 6-week in-person IELTS Prep Course will help you improve your IELTS Academic scores.* The course provides 45 hours of advanced instruction from an experienced instructor. The instructor will fully prepare you for all parts of the test: reading, writing, speaking, and listening.

The IELTS Prep Course curriculum was designed by using data from past official IELTS exams. Throughout the course, students will improve their pronunciation and grammar with the assistance of native English speakers. The goal of IELTS Prep is to ensure that students feel ready for the IELTS exam, university, and beyond.

By the end of the course, you will learn:

  • How to get a band 7.5 score on your IELTS exam*
  • IELTS testing strategies (how to write high-scoring essays, prioritize your testing time, and more)
  • The IELTS exam format (6 practice exams)
  • Applicable English language skills for post-secondary academics
