IELTS Support Tools and IELTS Preparation Guide

IELTS Preparation Course

The IELTS Support Tools pack provides an overview of the IELTS test with some handy tools and advice to help you prepare.

The IELTS preparation course will take you through each IELTS test section and question type, to help you on your journey to IELTS.

Just like the actual test, the preparation course is divided into four sections: Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking. In each section you will:

  • learn about the test section format – how many questions & how much time you should spend on each question
  • learn what question types to expect
  • see examples of questions and sample answers
  • get tips on how to improve your band score

We recommend taking the time to go through each of the sections within the preparation course.

Check Candidate Information Booklet to get ready for your test.
