IELTS Course Outline

On average a unit from the course book is covered in a week. Your teacher will send you a provisional timetable for the week via email before your Tuesday lesson, so you have an idea of what parts of the unit will be covered and when. Homework is set every evening, including some writing. Evening courses also use course books, but cover a unit in about 2 weeks.
