IELTS General Intermediate Program


Program Description


The program is designed to efficiently and strategically prepare intermediate level students for the IELTS General Test by teaching them both the English language and IELTS test-taking skills.


The program is for students with less than a 5.5 in IELTS OR equivalent (as established through a placement test or alternative standardized test) who need to complete the IELTS General for employment or immigration purposes.


The program is divided into five sections, one for each test section, which also correspond to the four language skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing), and one assessment section for practice tests.
