  Course Description:

Layer-27
 
 
 
 

At Burlington School, we have been preparing our students for the IELTS test for many years, and we have an in-depth knowledge of needs of candidates and the demands of the test.  Our IELTS Preparation course is designed to meet these needs.

Our IELTS Preparation courses are for people with a high level of English who want to make further progress in the language whilst preparing for the IELTS test, for work, study or immigration.  Typical learners on the course are able to use the main structures of the language with some confidence and have a wide range of vocabulary.  They can adapt their language to a variety of situations, and they do not rely on fixed patterns of language or short, simple utterances.  However, they may have trouble with some unfamiliar subject areas, and lack control over longer, more complex language.

We believe there are three main areas that students should work on when preparing for any test: overall language improvement, specific exam-related language improvement (this includes the grammar and vocabulary that the exam focuses on, as well as study skills and exam skills), and authentic exam practice. 

The core classes have an integrated approach to the IELTS test, and include work on language and skills, including grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, speaking, listening, reading and writing.

The elective classes build on the core classes, focussing on specific sections of the test as well as overall fluency.

  Course Content:

The classes use a range of methodologies and activities to help students learn and use the language.  The classes use a set coursebook, and these are supplemented with authentic materials, video and interactive technology.

Every two weeks there is a full practice test in class, which helps the teachers identify students’ strengths and weakness, and allows the students to check their progress and to give students authentic practice under exam conditions.
