IELTS (International Language Testing System) measures your ability to use academic English and is the entry requirement for those students wishing to study in an English speaking university. The IELTS course is ideal for students planning to attend university in an English speaking country and is also ideal for professionals such as doctors, nurses and dentists who require proof of their level of English.

There are two IELTS tests – Academic and General Training. The Listening and Speaking sections are the same; however, the topics of the Reading and Writing papers differ. At Cork English College we prepare students for the Academic section. Students interested in taking the General Training section should contact the school academic department.

Our courses are suited to both lower level IELTS (5.5-6.0) and higher level (6.5-8.0). The IELTS preparation course aims to develop students’ general English language and skills knowledge while also providing thorough preparation in the format of the IELTS test. Classes give a thorough grounding in all four skills as well as expanding general English vocabulary, improving grammar and perfecting students’ functional and conversational language.

In addition to focusing on the format of the exam (both General Training and Academic as required) and on improving test-taking techniques, classes help students to improve the specific language areas and issues associated with IELTS. Through integrated exam practice students strengthen their ability to respond effectively to exam tasks and maximize their IELTS score. The course covers all of the main areas needed to get a better score on the Speaking, Reading, Writing and Listening sections of the IELTS test.

Students can also access self study exam material on the CEC Online Learning Platform.

Not Included: Examination Fee (€200)

All CEC students have access to our E-Learning Platform which has an IELTS section for exam practice.

IELTS tests take place every month. Visit www.ieltscork.com for more information.
