IELTS Test Preparation aims to prepare students to take the Academic Module of the IELTS Test or ACU English Test. It focuses on giving students a clear understanding of the IELTS Test and the skills and strategies they need to be successful. The course is organised around a series of topics that match those commonly found in the IELTS Test, such as technology, society and the environment.

Students in IELTS Test Preparation will develop:

  • Confidence and fluency to communicate on a wide variety of topics;
  • The ability to quickly and accurately explain information and express opinions;
  • Listening skills to cope with a range of situations;
  • The skills needed to quickly read and comprehend complex articles.
