Free Online Course - Understanding IELTS

 Dear Teacher,

We are pleased to announce the new edition of the free online course entitled Understanding IELTS: Techniques for English Language Tests. Your students can take this opportunity to prepare themselves before sitting the IELTS test. The course can also help them prepare for study in UK, USA (and around the world) and can help improve their employability.

The course, lasting for 6 weeks - starting 13 February and ending 26 March -  is designed for learners of English who wish to familiarise themselves with all parts of the IELTS test.

During the 6 weeks, your students will have the opportunity to go through each stage of the IELTS test, talk about how you feel about exams, have useful tips on how to improve your speaking and writing skills and understand how the IELTS test is assessed.

IELTS is the world’s most popular English language test for higher education and global migration. IELTS is accepted by over 9,000 organisations worldwide including universities, employers, immigration authorities and professional bodies. Over 2.7 million IELTS tests were taken globally last year.

We would also like to invite you to access the IELTS website, where you can find:

  • free practice tests
  • free online practice materials
  • the band scores required by schools and other institutions

Your students can either sign up now to this free online IELTS course or registerto take the IELTS test!

Best wishes,
British Council Team
