LTC Brighton students-Exam Preparation

Exam Preparation 28 Lessons

28 Lessons/ 21 Hours of Study per Week

This is an intensive, full-time exam preparation course which is for students who want to study seriously towards an examination.

We have a very experienced team of exam teachers, several of whom are also Cambridge examiners.

Course Structure

Morning Classes 09:15-12:45 Monday to Friday.  These classes prepare you for IELTS, Cambridge First Certificate (FCE) or Cambridge Advanced (CAE). The focus is on exam skills and techniques that are the same in these different exams.

The lessons are based on a modern exam coursebook, though your teacher will also bring in extra materials to make sure the course meets your specific needs. We lend you the coursebook with no extra fees, though you may be asked to buy a workbook for approximately £15.

Afternoon Classes 13:45-15:15 Monday to Thursday. These classes focus on the skills and strategies needed for your chosen exam. For example, if you are preparing to take IELTS, your afternoon lessons will only focus on IELTS.

You will have regular homework and can use our study centre and language laboratory for further study in your free time.

Course Objectives

To help you prepare for an English language examination by:

  • Training you in exam skills and techniques
  • 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.

For further information, see the course description.

Levels and Progress

You will have a test on your first day to make sure you are in a class at the right level.  Our weekly progress tests and monthly tutorials make sure you move up to a higher level as soon as you are ready.

The IELTS course is for Intermediate to Advanced level students only, FCE is for Upper Intermediate level students and CAE for Advanced level students.

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

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

Advanced (CEFR 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 join the General English course 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.
