IELTS Preparation – 4 Weeks

IELTS, or the International English Language Testing System, assesses the language ability of those who intend to study or work where English is the principal language of communication. The IELTS test has four modules: Reading, Writing, Listening, and Speaking. A passing score is needed to qualify for a UK visa or be accepted at a university.

The IELTS Preparation courses at English Minds are offered at Intermediate, Upper Intermediate and Advanced levels. Students may participate in elective sessions that help them strengthen areas that need improvement. After completing the course, students will be ready to sit their IELTS examinations.

Reading Module

This section of the IELTS Preparation Course requires students to read and understand texts from books, magazines, and newspapers. After mastering this section, they progress to academic texts. Exercises include:

  • Writing brief answers to questions about the material
  • Categorising ideas logically and correctly
  • Matching paragraphs and their headings
  • Explaining why the information read is correct or incorrect

Upon completion of the Reading Module, the student will be able to read English-language texts of varying complexity and do well in an academic environment.

Writing Module

Students learn to produce both regular and academic-level texts in English. The topics provided tend to be general interest in scope, and easy for undergraduate or postgraduate-level learners to understand. Exercises include:

  • Writing short reports on information provided by the instructor
  • Writing clear and logical arguments for or against a given topic

After the module ends, the student’s ability to write clear and logical English texts will be proficient enough to qualify them for university admission.

Listening Module

These classes cultivate the listening skills needed for everyday communication in the UK. Students learn to understand both simple and complex conversations and correctly rephrase what they have been told. Exercises include listening to and understanding:

  • Conversations between two speakers on a variety of topics, such as driving directions or opening a bank account
  • Presentations and monologues on both general and academic subjects

The Listening Module enhances the student’s ability to understand spoken English, ensuring that they pass that section of the IELTS exam.

Speaking Module

This module is designed to help students speak English clearly and with more confidence. At the beginning, learners will introduce themselves and talk about current events, popular culture, and things that interest them. Instructors will require all participants to speak both one-on-one and in group settings about different topics. Exercises include:

  • Presentations on instructor-assigned topics
  • Two-way discussions between students and the instructor

The Speaking Module prepares the student for the spoken part of the IELTS exam by making sure that they can converse comfortably about both general and academic topics.

Although English Minds can’t register students for the IELTS exam, instructors will be pleased to provide printed or pdf copies of the official exam booking form, which contains detailed instructions about registration and payment.
