This course focuses on the skills you need to pass the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) exam. The course is structured to improve your proficiency in all four skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing. Monitoring and assessment, including practice exam papers, will help prepare you and build your confidence.





Hours per week

You can choose from 3 hours per day for either 5 days per week for a full time course or 3 days per week for a part time course – 12.30pm-3.30pm.

We also have 4 hours per week for evening courses on Tuesday & Thursday  – 6.30pm – 8.30pm. If you really want to learn super fast, you can combine all the IELTS courses into an intensive course. We have Saturday IELTS too from 12.30-4.30pm.


CEFR Levels

The minimum requirement for IELTS preparation course is B1. 

We prepare students for all levels, you tell us the score you need and when you need to take the exam and we work out the best study plan for you. 

 If you have a specific skill for IELTS you need to work on, you can always do individual lessons with our experienced teachers!

Students per class

We do our best to keep groups at a good size, we have a maximum of 16 students allowed per class, but we always try our best to have group sizes good enough for you to practice, make friends, and learn fast.

Progress Tracking

Every Friday we do revision and practice tests to check what you have learnt in the week, for students on longer courses we do individiual tutorials, with just you and the teacher. This way the teacher can talk to you about your progress and what you can do to improve faster.

Qualified Teachers

All of our teachers have a CELTA or DELTA qualification which is accredited by the University of Cambridge –  or equivalent. They have great experience and are passionate about teaching English. Teachers are observed regularly to make sure they are always improving.


We use the best picked materials for our lessons. We use the most popular course books for all our Exam preparation English lessons, teachers pick their own materials too so lessons are interactive. Teachers use past practice papers to help you feel the real exam scenario. The exam fees are between £162-£180.
