The IELTS course is an intensive program, designed to prepare international students to take the IELTS test. The main delivery mode is face-to-face. However, online materials and homework will provide students the opportunity to study outside the classroom in their own time. Shift times are as follows:
The IELTS Foundation level is a 12-week, 20 hours per week, 5 hours per day level (Monday to Thursday), where students complete exercises and mock tests related to the four test skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking. The core part of the level is the first three hours, when students will use the set textbook, along with supplementary material.
The most important aim for the instructor is to create a positive, supportive and comfortable classroom environment, based on good rapport and empathetic communication with the students. The last two hours of the shift will focus on textbooks that include material on specific skill areas or a mock test (one skill only per test).
These classes are designed to add to the students’ learning experience by covering material that complements what is included in the core Classes. Upon successful completion of the IELTS Foundation level, students will be able to transfer to the IELTS Advanced level or articulate into vocational or higher education courses.
