Students at RELA can prepare for the IELTS test in our afternoon exam training class. Most students combine this with our General English course in the morning. IELTS is very important for anyone who wants to study at an English language speaking university. The qualification is recognised by more than 6,000 institutions worldwide. There are tests of your speaking, writing, listening and reading. RELA offers IELTS exam training to students at Upper Intermediate to Advanced level. Entry to class depends on a student’s current level of English. After a student enrols at RELA, he/she will take a test and be placed in the appropriate classes. Mornings - a language development class at your level, teaching grammar, vocabulary, reading, writing, listening, speaking and pronunciation. Afternoons - an IELTS preparation class designed to teach you exam taking strategies and familiarise you with all aspects of the exam. The reason for IELTS only being taught in the afternoons is that it is not a teaching programme. It is an exam training programme. By combining IELTS in the afternoon with a morning General English course teaching language development at a student’s exact level, we expect to see students gain the required IELTS score more quickly than if they were doing only IELTS training. The morning classes will focus on the language skills needed to help students gain the IELTS score they need, while the afternoons will focus on exam techniques and strategies. RELA will accept students over 16 years at all times of the year, if they meet our enrolment conditions. At RELA, our IELTS preparation class runs all through the year, so you can join it at any time.
