Over the years, our native-speaker teachers at SGI - St George's International English school in London, have guided thousands of learners through the IELTS course to achieve the grade in the test they require.
An important factor in this success rate is the SGI ‘Weekly Test’.
Every Thursday morning, every student has to sit a complete IELTS mock exam. This includes reading, listening, writing and speaking sections. This adapts everyone on the course to the demands of the test, so that when it comes to the real thing, no-one is shocked by any nasty surprises. Being familiar with the question types that you will face is a key element to exam success and avoiding being nervous and having ‘butterflies in the stomach’ when finally the big day of your IELTS test arrives.
The weekly exercise also helps everyone to understand their individual strengths and weaknesses. It is also an objective assessment of English progress, which is crucial as you work through all the language skills. All our IELTS courses in London have small group sizes, allowing the teachers to really get to know all the class members as individuals and therefore provide personal attention to each candidate to help them with their specific language needs.
It has been quite common for students to study on the SGI University Foundation Course for a while to gain relevant language skills. Then later, they move on to the IELTS exam course to focus more heavily on the specific requirements of the exam. However, it is also typical to only join for a few months of study before attempting the test.
The IELTS exam course in London is clearly for people who are motivated and serious about achieving the highest possible IELTS band score in the most effective and professional way.
IELTS exam cost £160
The course is ideal for students who want to study at a British University, as it is the key test used in the UK to assess English language ability, for either undergraduate or postgraduate degree courses.
It is also a very popular course with students who need a proven level of English for work and career purposes.
As well as English language development and preparation vital for the IELTS, the course also focuses on academic skills and learning strategies that will help students at a British University, for example, how to research projects in a library, and giving your opinion in a seminar.
