IELTS exam preparation course focuses on expanding the students’ ability to learn and accurately use complex academic vocabulary and sentence constructions and incorporates transferable study skills necessary for Higher Education. The course also equips students with a strategy to successfully answer all tasks on each paper. All students are given full mock exams so they get vital practice under the pressure of exam conditions.
The IELTS courses at ELA are split into different levels, and the students are placed into the IELTS classes based on their current level of English. The minimum requirement is the B1 or Intermediate level. If a student's level is lower than B1, the student would have to attend our General English and Skills before joining the IELTS class.
You would typically study three hours a day a combination of Academic English and all four skills of the language and then two hours a day of exam preparation techniques and skills. The course is typically twenty-five hours per week full time or ten hours per week part time (pure exam technique classes).

"And finally all of my efforts have come to an end. Today is the beginning of a new way of thinking and experiencing life, focusing my mind on my future. I've passed my final exams with the mark I needed to enter university in Scotland. Finally, I've won my challenge, and I would like to thank all of my teachers who supported me in ELA, especially I'd like to thank my teacher and personal supervisor Oana Morgan, I finally made it!
