IELTS Exam Preparation & Exam 

This course is designed to familiarise candidates with the exam format, refine exam technique skills, and offer the opportunity to take timed practice tests in order to give students the skills and confidence to achieve their required results. The course comprises 1-hour lessons each week with an experienced, native English IELTS expert. A large focus of the course will be on preparing for the writing section, which is often the more challenging part of the exam. Through timed practice tests, carefully targeted exercises, individual and group work, the teacher will offer tips and advice on how to manage all sections of the exam efficiently. Speaking practice will focus on form and content, aiming to increase students’ vocabulary range, as well as their ability to use a variety of grammatical structures and appropriate discourse markers to demonstrate fluency. The teacher will also offer the opportunity to practice listening and reading exercises and offer strategies for maximising the marks available in these sections of the exam.

A language test will need to be completed on the first class on the 18th November with the aim to ascertain each student’s level. The Extracurricular office will give feedback within 3 days of the test confirming if the student will be able to complete the course, or alternatively requires additional EFL tuition. As a guide, the minimum level of English required to attend this course is the equivalent to B2

If your son/daughter is a non-EU National who wishes to apply to university in the UK, they will be required to sit the IETLS Academic for UKVI. The test format is the same, however the exam is offered in Bern (at a British Council approved test venue). Dates for the 2020 tests have not yet been released.

 

If your son/daughter is 1) an EU National who wishes to apply to university in the UK, or 2) an EU or non-EU National who wishes to study in North America, Asia, Australia/New Zealand, Africa or European universities outside of the UK, they will sit the IELTS Academic exam offered in Geneva. Exam date: 22nd February 2020.

For candidates attending the Geneva based exam, a chaperone to accompany the students from College du Leman to the test venue, and back to school afterwards is provided.

For those sitting the IETLS for UKVI, a coach will be provided by the school.
