How we work with you

This course is designed to prepare you to take the IELTS exam and achieve a 6.5 score or above

This starts with a conversation with our lead trainer. First we need to evaluate your current English skills and identify your strengths and weaknesses.

You may find speaking relatively easy but really struggle to write a well-structured essay. Your evaluation will help us decide how to make the most of your time in class and during self-study.

IELTS students who combine self-study with our classes get higher grades.

We use a combination of practice using past exam papers, teaching grammar, expanding your vocabulary and teaching exam techniques specific to the IELTS.

In class, this means you will do a combination of these activities dependent on your needs and existing English skills.

You will receive individual, personal feedback that you can use to improve.

  • Reading techniques and practice specific to the IELTS exam.
  • Writing strategies for well-structured, cohesive essays for both part 1 and part 2 of the IELTS exams.
  • Listening practice combined with pronunciation and intonantion training.
  • Speaking practice for parts 1 tto 3 of the IELTS exam.

This is a course that runs year round and you can join at any point in the year. We will quickly identify where you need the most support from our teachers and where you can improve through guided self-study.

You then free to decide how many hours of classes you would like to attend depending on your existing English skills and when you want to take the exam.

You decide how intensively you want to study. With The English Classroom you can study with us every day or just a couple of hours a week. As your exam date approaches you will probably find that you will study most intensively!

You can book your exam online directly with The British Council. There are exam centres in Cambridge and London which are both approximately 40 minutes by train from our base in Bishop’s Stortford.

It is up to you how many times you take the exam. Some people book several exam at once others book one exam and settle with their first result. You will receive a certificate for every exam you take, so you can use the highest result as proof of your English skills.
