New Adventures, New You

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.

The course will help prepare students by teaching strategies and language skills necessary for the exam. Following the course, students should be able to complete the following tasks:

  • LISTENING - Extract relevant information from four audio passages and answer 40 questions in 30 minutes. The question types can include multiple choice, short answer, sentence completion or chart completion. 

  • READING - Extract relevant information from three reading passages and answer 40 questions in 60 minutes. The question types can include multiple choice, short answer, sentence completion, chart completion, identification of information or writer’s opinion, and matching lists or phrases.

  • WRITING - Interpret and describe graphical information, write a letter responding to a given situation and write a discursive or argumentative essay.

  • SPEAKING - participate in a speaking test consisting of three sections: 
a) an interview (4-5 minutes)    b) a mini presentation (3-4 minutes)   c) a two-way conversation.

During this course, practice IELTS exams will be written and studied to familiarize students with the format and structure of the exam.
