The courses content is personalized, so the teacher will approach the concepts of the English language according to your interests and needs.
COURSE CONTENT for ielts preparation
First, we offer an evaluation of the student’s level to better understand the student’s needs and weaknesses. We provide all the material for the course and our teachers guide you through your preparation giving you feedback on your progress for each section of the exam.
For the writing section you will receive corrections in red of your compositions and essays and grammatical exercises targeted to help you improve the areas identified during the correction process.
For the speaking part the teacher will give feedback and correct the student while he or she speaks and write the corrections on Skype so the student can understand the mistakes being made during the preparation for the oral expression. Targeted exercises will be assigned to help the student improve.
For the reading section the student will receive a text to read with questions to answer, the teacher will correct the exercises and offer hints and tips to help improve the reading comprehension.
For the listening section, the teacher will give audio files to the student as homework and the student will have to answer a series of questions related to the audio files and submit their answers to their teacher for correction. They will receive the corrections of the audio file answers and tips on what to listen for, when preparing for the listening comprehension section of the IELTS exam.
IELTS preparation can be done by Google Meet or telephone, depending on the student's preferences and availability. You can choose to take several classes in one week to meet an early deadline.
