Exam Preparation Courses

Study for IELTS or FCE with LTC

LTC offers a range of Exam Preparation courses so that you can obtain an internationally recognised English language qualification.

LTC runs Exam Preparation Courses for IELTS and Cambridge FCE.

Course Objectives

To help you achieve good results in your chosen exam by:

  • Training you in the skills and techniques needed for your exam
  • Giving you extensive examination practice
  • Improving the level of your English through a combination of language input and practice in the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing
  • Developing the study skills that will enable you to continue to learn English after your course.

You will have regular progress tests and tutorials during your course so you can measure your progress.


IELTS preparation courses are for Intermediate to Advanced level students only. Cambridge FCE is for Upper Intermediate students.

Intermediate (B1) Can communicate effectively in most situations but sometimes has to work hard to do so.

Upper Intermediate (B2) Can communicate effectively in most situations and can usually easily re-phrase in order to be understood.

Advanced (C1) Can communicate effectively in all but the most difficult situations.

If you are not sure of your level, contact us and we will send you a test and give advice. If your English is not yet good enough, you can study General English first until you are ready to transfer to Exam Preparation.

The fees for General English and Exam Preparation are the same, so there are no extra course fees. See our Exams page for examination fees.
