IELTS preparation classes

If English is not your first language and you would like to improve it for work or study, our IELTS preparation classes may be just what you're looking for.

IELTS stands for 'International English Language Testing System'. The IELTS test score is recognised by many employers and educational institutions worldwide. You can use your IELTS certificate to demonstrate how well you can communicate in English. Of course, you can also attend the classes without taking the IELTS exam, simply to improve your English.



Please note that your English must be intermediate level or higher to join the classes. If you are unsure whether your general English level is high enough, please take the test on the Cambridge English Language Assessment website and email us with your results (your score and which Cambridge ESOL exam is recommended) at We will then be able to advise you on whether the class is suitable for you.
