The Global Village IELTS Preparation Program is specially designed to prepare students who wish to take either the Academic or General Training IELTS exam. Students refine the four skills tested on the IELTS test: listening, reading, writing and speaking. Frequent practice tests are done, including a full mock examination. Special attention is paid to timing and strategies for improving IELTS band scores, while continuing to develop advanced vocabulary and grammar for a more formal speaking and writing style.
The class takes place Monday to Thursday from 8:45am to 2:10pm and Friday from 8:45am to 12:20pm.
