General English + IELTS Exam Preparation Course

28 lessons/ 21 hours of study per week

This course is ideal for students studying for the IELTS exam.

Course Structure

Morning Classes – These focus on improving your General English: listening, speaking, reading, writing, grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation.  Your lessons are based on a modern coursebook, though your teacher will also bring in extra materials to make sure the course meets your specific needs. (We lend you the coursebook. There are no extra fees.)

Afternoon Classes – These focus on training you for the IELTS exam. As well as tips and strategies, you will have extensive examination practice.

At LTC London we have small classes: a maximum of 12 students per class. This is less than most English language schools in London and means that our teachers can give you extra attention.

Course Objectives

To help you achieve good results in IELTS by:

  • Training you in the skills and techniques needed for the exam
  • Giving you extensive IELTS 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 place you 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.

This course is for Intermediate to Advanced level students only.

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 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.

Taking the IELTS Exam

You can take the IELTS exam in London almost every week. See our Prices page for examination fees.
