Get Ready for IELTS

 

Get Ready for IELTS!

 

General course description: Get Ready for IELTS!—an eight-week course in IELTS preparation--seeks to develop students' abilities in the four skills tested in the IELTS Exam (specifically, listening, reading, writing, and speaking). While maintaining a communicative approach to language learning and teaching, the course will focus on strategies for improving the aforementioned skills. The course will begin with a brief overview of the four skills and of the IELTS' method of testing them. Subsequent lessons will follow a step-by-step process to lead students toward a firm grasp of the exam itself and of methods of being successful on the exam. It is important to note, however, that the course is NOT intended to provide students with tricks for obtaining a high score on the IELTS Exam.  The overall goals of the course are to help students reach the level of English necessary to obtain a desired score and to equip students with strategies for success. Required texts for the course are the following:

  •  New Insights into IELTS: Student's Book (Foreign Language and Research Press in conjunction with Cambridge University Press)
  • New Insights into IELTS: Workbook (Foreign Language and Research Press in conjunction with Cambridge University Press)

Internet-based materials and tools will be made available for students to download and practice on their own.
