Beginning with our General English programme we will ensure you have a good range of skills before you transfer to our exam preparation programme to prepare for your chosen exam. You can then study for IELTS, Cambridge First Certificate English (FCE) or Certificate in Advanced English (CAE).
The morning classes on the exam programme are based around exam skills that help prepare you for all the main exams. Afternoon lessons focus on individual exams, their assessment methods and techniques for gaining the best possible results. We have several experienced exam teachers who are also Cambridge examiners. We will give you regular homework (normally every day), regular exam practice and revision tests.
You will have a tutorial at the start of your programme to look at your aims and set some realistic targets for your development and for your chosen exam. You will then have regular tutorials (every four weeks) with your teachers to look at your progress and give you advice on how to keep improving your English and focus on your weaknesses.
We use Communicative Language Teaching – you learn to use your English by using your English. There is a strong focus on speaking and listening, and you will spend a lot of time working together with your classmates. We also integrate grammar and vocabulary work with practice in the four skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing. The exam classes include full revision of grammar points and feature lots of practical advice about exam skills.
Teaching and Study Materials:
We lend you a coursebook (you don’t have to pay extra). Your teacher will use the coursebook as a basis for your course, but he or she will also bring in extra materials and you can use our listening and study centres for self-study.
You can arrange to take IELTS, FCE or CAE using the school’s exam service (we can also offer the TOEIC or TOEFL exams by special arrangement). For the busy exam sessions in the summer and December it is a good idea to make your exam entry booking when you enrol with us.
Certificates and Reports:
At the end of your studies with LTC you will be given a certificate if you have attended at least 80% of your lessons. You will also be given a report from your teacher
