Due to challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the English Language Institute has made the careful decision to cancel the IELTS preparation course in the Fall 2020 term. We are planning to resume the IELTS preparation course in the Winter 2021 term. We regret any inconvenience.
IELTS is the International English Language Testing System. It measures ability to communicate in English across all four language skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking.
To prepare you for IELTS, we offer a blended course as well as online course options. The blended course consists of in-class tutorials (50 hours) at Renison University College with a certified instructor and an online component that you can complete at home. We also offer preparation courses that can be done all online.
Renison is an IELTS testing location. For information on taking the IELTS test at Renison, click here.
Blended IELTS preparation course
This course consists of 50 hours of face-to-face classroom instruction and 50 hours of online preparation (the course is 100 hours in total). Classroom lessons will be held twice a week for 10 weeks.
Classroom lessons will focus on preparation for the Academic IELTS examination at a higher level (6.0 - 7.5 IELTS band score). Students will work on the four language skill areas (Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking) as well as study vocabulary and select grammar. Detailed instructor feedback will be provided.
A minimum registration of 10 students is needed to run this course. In the event that the course is cancelled due to insufficient registration, your tuition will be refunded to you in full, or you can defer your registration to another term.
