IELTS Preparation Course
In Canada, IELTS is used as a measure of English language proficiency for immigration, skilled worker applications, university and college entrance requirements and professional designations. Our IELTS Preparation Course will introduce you to the structure of the IELTS exam as well as review strategies for all the components. Learn what to expect during the IELTS test and achieve better results through practice and revision. Study with official practice test materials and receive feedback from an instructor. The course will help you identify the sources of common errors and give you the necessary skills to avoid repeating them on test day.
Listening: You will learn to analyze the format and theme of each listening section and how each single item is designed to test the candidates’ listening skills and comprehension. You will have the opportunity to develop the techniques of identifying the appropriate type of information for each item through extensive timed practice.
Reading: You will learn to apply skimming and scanning strategies to answer questions. We will help you discover test designed “tricks” on paper.
Writing: You will become familiar with the process of developing a well-organized piece of writing from a given topic. Focus will be placed on the process-oriented view of writing rather than a product-oriented view. We will tailor our lessons to help you analyze the topic/question, look for information (ideas, examples, experiences, and facts), organize your writing coherently and cohesively and understand the scoring criteria.
Speaking: We will help you gain the self-confidence necessary to excel at the speaking test. You will review and update your pronunciation and intonation fluency and accuracy. You will learn how to tune your speech to monitor speed, vocabulary, sentence structures, and appropriate transitional signals or connectors to express your opinions and thoughts.
