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.
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 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.
Students can add to these lessons in the elective classes. These classes build on the work covered in the main classes, focussing on specific sections of the test as well as overall fluency.
The classes use a set coursebook, and these are supplemented with authentic materials, video and interactive technology.
Every two weeks there is a 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.
