IELTS is Langports’ unique intensive IELTS preparation program. To help you succeed at the test, our experienced IELTS teachers will help you improve the 4 major skills essential for the exam – listening, reading, speaking and writing – but also provide an in-depth focus on “micro skills” such as spelling, grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, intonation, speaking strategies and much more!
IELTS (the International English Language Testing System) is an exam that assesses the English Language proficiency of people who would like to study or work in an English speaking environment. There are 2 versions of the exam: academic and general, where the reading and writing components differ. At Langports, we train you for the hardest exam, which is the academic, so that you can register for the exam of your choice and succeed at both versions!
A high level of IELTS requires a good range of vocabulary, collocation, grammar and writing skills. Hence, contrary to most IELTS preparation courses, Langports’ IELTS course has a strong focus on the writing component of the exam (40% of the course), which is also used in all other sections of the test, to write your answers in the reading & listening parts of the exam for instance. Then you will spend 20% of the time training your reading skills, 15% of the time training you speaking skills and 15% of the time training your listening skills. The remaining time is focused on improving your grammar. All together it’s a great recipe for success!
IELTS can be taken in 49 centres in Australia including 9 centres in Sydney, 5 centres in Brisbane and 1 centre on the Gold Coast. Find your preferred centre and exam date here.
