Academic is mainly for higher education or professional registration. IELTS General is mainly for lower qualifications or migration to countries like New Zealand. Cambridge B2 First (FCE) and Cambridge C1 Advanced (CAE) represent nearly-advanced and advanced English skills.
This is an intensive hybrid 12 week program for students wishing to do IELTS, B2 First (FCE) or C1 Advanced (CAE), etc, in Wellington.
- Get into a university or the course you want
- Prove your English level to employers
- Get the points you need for immigration
What you will learn
- Exam tasks and how to do them – speaking, listening, reading and writing
- Strategies (tips, tricks, formats) to raise your score even higher
- Grammar at your best level – IELTS & Cambridge look at “range” and “complex structures”
- Vocabulary to look your best – the advanced words and style that is expected
Our teachers are passionate, qualified and want to help you. They have years of proven experience teaching exam classes. Our teachers understand how important these exams are to you.
- All students do practice tests of their particular exam at least every four or five weeks
- Available at various levels from pre-intermediate (CEFR A2, IELTS 4.5+)
- You will be given an Individual Learning Plan to help you learn in a way that is right for you
Sometimes you will cover the tasks you need directly. Other times, you will cover the tasks of other exams, but you will find that you’re still practicing and developing the English skills that you need to develop (i.e., speaking is speaking, whether for IELTS or B2 First (FCE)). You will have plenty of opportunities to focus on the tasks you need. You might one day learn about writing on a task you don’t need, but you will cover useful strategies that still apply to your exam, and when you do writing practice, you will usually have the option of doing that same one or doing the one necessary for your particular exam, and just carrying those skills over.
