The Foundation course is designed for students who are thinking about taking IELTS, but who are currently at A2 level (band score 3.5-4.0). It teaches students in a way that helps them to improve their general English level and introduces elements of assessment for the IELTS test. The topics have been chosen to help students develop their skills and knowledge of everyday subjects which will be useful for the IELTS test as they progress.
- At the start of the course the topics have been chosen to build confidence
- In the later stages, students get an idea of what they will meet in the IELTS test
- The material is designed to be challenging but doesn’t push students above what they can do
Continuous assessment and feedback is given throughout the course using authentic practice materials. This helps students to understand their strengths and weaknesses and improve their average band score. By the end of each course, each student will have completed two IELTS examinations under exam conditions (with easier writing practice).
