The course is set to discuss exam requirements, specific tasks (especially the complicated writing and the tricky speaking tasks), and the most common mistakes. Please note that this course is not for improving you English level. If your level is lower than upper-intermediate (B2), General English course is much more suitable for you than a specialized IELTS course.
In one-two months get acquainted with IELTS structure and requirements, practice all kinds of exam tasks, improve IELTS-specific vocabulary, identify personal gaps and weak spots in students’ language knowledge and eliminate them with teacher’s help, learn about the most common IELTS mistakes and how the Band Score is applied, systemize language skills to apply them in IELTS the best way.
AKS IELTS course is taught by teachers who have taken the exam themselves and those who are very well familiar with its structure and evaluation system. Some AKS teachers have also worked at the official IELTS examination centre.
Mind the fact that the minimal amount of time necessary for IELTS preparation (at home, at school, or anywhere else) is two months. Do not wait till the last minute, because it is much better to learn slowly and give time for comprehending IELTS preparation materials. Keep in mind that it is recommended to take the exam right after the preparation course so that you do not forget what you have learnt.
Participants get ready for IELTS exam in a short period of time and obtain all the necessary information to get the best score possible. Also, upon participant's request, free additional learning materials are provided. All participants get their teacher’s personal contact information and are welcome to ask for any kind of IELTS guidance at any time. Once in a while, IELTS Mock Tests are organized. They can show an accurate participant's band score.
The risk to obtain a low band score is minimized; most of the time the teacher can accurately determine what your final IELTS exam result will be with ~90% accuracy.
If the teacher sees that there is a high possibility to obtain a low band score (due to the lack of time or low English level), it is advised to postpone the exam. Important: in many cases, retaking IELTS in six months’ time after having taken the exam for the first time, the bad score remains the same, therefore taking IELTS with an idea that if you do not succeed the first time, you can simply take it again soon is not actually that smart.
