IELTS Prep Centres

Many students choose to attend live classes to help prepare for the IELTS exams. Such exam preparation courses are offered worldwide either through specialized exam prep centres or through general ESL / EFL schools. It's impossible to say which is preferable because the quality of the program depends on many factors: the instructors, the materials used, the methods followed, the management of the school, teacher-student ratio, and more.

The best way to choose may be to arrange to attend a free class or before you sign up. In this way, you have the opportunity to experience a lesson and then decide if you feel pleased and confident about the class overall. You must have faith in your teacher to implement his or her advice so make sure you and the teacher are a good match, or else visit another school. This is an important decision so don't let schools pressure you into paying before you're ready.

Don't presume that established schools have the best programs. Check out small and large schools if necessary and choose the teacher who has specific experience in preparing students for the IELTS, and not only in general English language training. Some schools offer short, intensive workshops, in the evenings or on weekends, which can also give you a good idea of the quality of the training.

The IELTS is an important exam, so start searching for the right exam prep course early to allow yourself sufficient time to make the best choice. A top program can certainly help you get top marks.
