COURSE SUMMARY The IELTSx course aims to provide students with the knowledge and practical skills required to successfully prepare to take the IELTS Academic Test. IELTS, which stands for International English Language Testing System, is a globally-recognised test of English language proficiency. It is a popular choice for students wishing to study at a university in an English-speaking country. This course will prepare you to take the IELTS Academic Test with confidence.

The IELTSx course offers a comprehensive introduction to the IELTS test, with over 80 hours of interactive practice materials. Like the test itself, course content is organised into the four main skill areas: Speaking, Listening, Reading, and Writing. Each section of this course includes engaging multimedia presentations reviewing key test-taking skills, strategies and techniques.
