About the IELTS Preparation Course
IELTS Preparation course is an introductory course that gives you the essential knowledge and needed skills to pass the IELTS exam smoothly.
IELTS refers to the International English Language Testing System. It was established by Cambridge Assessment English and the British Council in 1980.
IELTS has two types: The Academic and the General Training.
Each one examines students on the same 4 skills but in different contexts and content.
The IELTS Academic test is for students who wish to travel abroad to learn at a higher education level, while the IELTS General Training test is for those who want to find a job abroad, for example.

- Payment Instructions
You need an intermediate level (B1) in English at least to apply for this course.
We test you to make sure you are B1+ through Cambridge English Placement Test (CEPT). This course will prepare you for the IELTS exam by practicing your English skills and enhancing your abilities in each skill.
Additionally, you’ll learn some other skills besides the English ones. One of these is time management as you need to be precise in the time you need for every question, because if you take too much time on a question you’ll not catch up the others or you’ll solve them in a rush. And as we know, rushing in the answers isn’t great.
Your English skills need to be at B1 level or higher so that you have the basics of the English skills that we can build on and enhance to reach the level of the IELTS exam.
You also need to demonstrate the ability to learn more, whether in the English skills or other skills like analyzing questions and managing time.
