Entry Requirements

The IELTS Preparation course aims to equip students with the skills and strategies needed to undertake the IELTS test with confidence and achieve a result of band 6.0 or above.

Who should do the IELTS Preparation Course?

This course is suitable for international and permanent resident students who are preparing to enter New Zealand and overseas educational institutions and who need to present an internationally recognized assessment of their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. Many employers require a similar assessment of a potential employee's English language proficiency. The New Zealand Immigration Service draws upon IELTS test scores when considering applicants for permanent residency.

IELTS Course Structure

This is a 12-week course, with each week comprising 23 hours. Students will be trained in interpreting and answering IELTS questions.

The first class of the day covers the four skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) with attention given to strategies for the various question types and lots of practice using these strategies.

The second class of the day has a topic based approach which includes a strong focus on vocabulary learning and retention. Each week a different IELTS topic is covered, including education, health, social issues, families and environmental issues. Students can expect IELTS style speaking, reading, writing and listening all based on the same topic and are tested weekly on vocabulary. Students learn and support each other in a communicative classroom environment.

The IELTS Preparation course aims to equip students with the skills and strategies needed to undertake the IELTS test with confidence and achieve a result of band 6.0 or above.

Students are required to purchase the two volumes of the AIS St Helens Academic Word List (NZD $15.00 each)
