Aims & Objectives

Training, motivating and developing the presentation skills of candidates, who intend to work or post-school study in a country where English is used as means of communications. Our emphasis is on ample interaction and communication that provides conducive environment for language learning. We have a comprehensive regime for practice lessons on grammar, vocabulary, speaking and listening. The Primary goal of the course is to teach the ability to communicate according to the situation, purpose and roles of participants.
The Academic IELTS is necessary for students who plan to study at university level, and it will test the student’s ability to test both to understand and to use complex academic language.
The General IELTS is required by other colleges and high schools, for the courses that require less complex language skills, and is also used for test of English Proficiency.
There are four modules: reading, writing, listening and speaking.

This preparation course develops both fluency and accuracy in English through ample exercises in each module. Through the use of a wide variety of stimulating and challenging activities, students would be able to consolidate and develop their communicative competence in English.
