Course Details   IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is a popular worldwide recognised qualification. The IELTS grades range from 0 to 9 (best). You cannot fail the test but get a definite result stating your capabilities. Most universities in the UK require non-native speakers to achieve an IELTS score of between 5.5 and 6 before being accepted onto a degree course.

Our classes aim to give students direction and training in all four areas of the exam: reading, writing, listening and speaking. Our IELTS course focuses on academic and general language development combined with examination technique tips, assessment and advice from our teachers.

A good knowledge of General English is very important for this exam; therefore, your teacher will combine some of your IELTS classes with General English revision from time to time. Depending on your General English level an average of 12 weeks intensive study is required to progress by one score.

Course Options  
Intensive: 21 hours per week with lessons from 9.30am to 3.00pm (Monday to Thursday) and 9.30am to 1p.m. on Friday.

Assessment   Students are given the chance to practice supervised mock/sample IELTS tests supervised by their teacher, this helps you familiarise yourself with the structure of the exam and improve your techniques. Our teachers set a weekly test in the first lesson every Friday morning and produce a detailed monthly report. This allows students to see the areas that they need to improve on. Progress is monitored closely to guarantee students benefit enormously from their time at the college. Daily homework is given on the course to help students revise what they have learnt during the lessons and practice extended IELTS writing and reading tasks.

End of Course   At the end of the IELTS course students who have attended regularly receive a Cardiff Millennium College certificate detailing study dates and course studied.
