Our IELTS (International English Language Testing System) courses provide full and thorough preparation for the IELTS exam. With a strong exam focus, our courses guide students through the four different parts, familiarising them with IELTS exam techniques and requirements, so that students know exactly what to expect and are confident of their own abilities when they sit down to start the exam.
Many IELTS courses combine IELTS preparation with General English – but this is an unproductive strategy, and the student’s efforts become diluted. Our courses are far better, enabling students to focus completely on the IELTS exam, and to achieve their full potential in the exam itself.
Students who need to improve their English level should enrol in our General English courses (see https://gta.org.uk/#english-courses) before switching to the IELTS course (for example, 11 weeks General English + 4 weeks IELTS).
