IELTS Preparation

Achieve the results you require in your IELTS test with our preparation course which will help to improve all the key language skills required to help you reach the score you need.

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is the world’s most popular English language test for studying in higher education. It is also recognised by many employers and government immigration agencies as proof of your ability to communicate in English.

The Language Gallery's IELTS preparation course will help you to develop the language skills and confidence you need to succeed in your IELTS test, focusing on the reading, writing, speaking and listening components. Our IELTS preparation courses are available at all our UK centres.

IELTS is an essential qualification to hold if you’re a non-native English speaker and wish to apply to an English-speaking university, or for secondary, vocational or training programmes. Recognised by UKVI as a Secure English Language Test (SELT), it can also be used for immigration purposes.

Before you begin your IELTS preparation course, you will be tested to assess your level of English. All students must be B1+ to join this course.

During the IELTS course, you will take weekly practice tests and receive feedback on your performance. You will also have regular personal tutorials with your teacher to discuss your progress. By taking our IELTS course you will:
