Teaching methods

Workshop content

The workshops focus on test-specific skills. You will use past papers to work on timings and complete a mock exam. 

The workshops will cover the following skills:

  • Writing: You will discuss the requirements of the IELTS writing examination and obtain individual feedback. (Unfortunately, it is not possible to mark and return complete scripts).
  • Speaking: You will discuss the requirements of the oral exam. You will watch other participants undertake a mock exam and learn from one another’s performances.

Please note, refreshments are not provided during these workshops. 

Teaching style

Our courses are delivered in small classes (maximum group size is 14) so that you can benefit from one-to-one attention in the classroom and the rich feedback we provide across all four skills (listening, speaking reading and writing).

We will also create a tailored study plan for you, with specific goals and an explanation how you can achieve them. This is critical to help you understand and apply the more challenging aspects of English language required for higher-order communication of complex ideas across all skills.
