This course will introduce you to the IELTS exam format & its 4 components: Listening, Reading, Writing & Speaking.
You need to take the IELTS test if you are applying for a job or to study in a college or university in an English-speaking country or if you are migrating to those countries, we hope you will enjoy your time with us. Good luck!”
In this course you will learn 4 components of the IELTS test:
In the IELTS test, time is your enemy. Candidates who have taken the test and did not perform as well as they had hoped often complain that they were unable to give all the answers in the Listening Test because the tape was too fast. However, with our course, this problem will be solved by constant listening to your English tutor. You need to be familiar with the main accents (e.g. you can understand them) – listen to radio, podcasts etc with various accents; We’d recommend using voice only media, rather than TV/movies, because we often get cues from ‘lip reading’ and this is a crutch you will not have during the exam.
The faster and more accurately you read, the more questions you will be able to answer. In all the tests, the instructions, the example, and the questions themselves need to be read quickly and must be well understood in order for you to have more time to find the answers. Practice reading various ‘everyday texts’ – read newspapers, magazine; the key is to read the text quickly and understand it and ‘extract’ information needed.
Write short academic-style essays, including describing data or processes and presenting arguments coherently and cohesively. Interpret and describe graphical information or write a letter responding to a given situation. In this course, you will find yourself in many such situations in order to practice your writing skills. Many people fail this part because they miss the point that it is not only about being able to write in correct English and answer the questions correctly but also use the required format for whatever you are writing (e.g essay). This is the trickiest part for many of us. Learn how to structure your answers, use keywords/keyphrases etc.
The practice is key. Get hold of old tests, best if with the key, and practice under exam conditions, so timing as you will be during the exam. Of course, if you’re taking the Academic module, you need to be able to use English at the academic level, e.g. with academic texts, specialized vocabulary etc.
Make contributions to discussions on a variety of concrete and more abstract topics. Fluency, accuracy, range, and relevance are practiced. Review and practice all aspects of speaking during the course. you need to have vocabulary to be able to discuss topics; it’s really about practicing on old exam questions; many questions really repeated, so if you do enough of them, you should be able to pull it off; team up with another student and practice together, or just talk to yourself, timing yourself, because you will have limited time to prepare and deliver your answer.
While it is true that not all words and phrases given as answers to questions in the Listening and Reading Tests need to be grammatically correct, it is often possible to work out the correct answer by using your knowledge of grammar. We will focus on grammar in detail during the course.
