The IELTS is one of the most requested and recognized tests to assess the English skills of students and professionals around the world. Whether you are thinking about getting into College, pursuing a Post-Graduate Degree or getting a better job, the IELTS will allow you to assess and prove your English skills in all the relevant areas of English, such as reading, writing, listening and speaking.

Most educational institutions and companies around the world will like to know what is your IELTS score before accepting you, and now you have the opportunity to impress them by taking this Exam Preparation Program in one of the best Language Centres in North America.

The Tamwood IELTS course is based on 3 principles: effective (high score oriented), flexible (transferable English), and self-study oriented (students are well equipped with powerful methodologies and testing tactics and they can apply these methodologies to their self-study.)

Additionally, to the in- class testing, Tamwood provides monthly mock exams which are held every fourth Friday.

The main components of the course are:

1. Reading Skills
Develop reading strategies to cope and understand academic English, focusing on overall comprehension, critical reading skills and understanding vocabulary from context. This section of the course will enable students to become more comfortable with advanced reading materials by reading carefully and extensively.

2. Listening Skills
IELTS listening classes concentrate on purpose, meaning, vocabulary and structure. Students will learn a variety of techniques for comprehension. As the students hears each excerpt only once in the test, a lot of practice will be given in drawing quick conclusions and opinions from a listening text.

3. Oral Skills
The ability to present information in a well-structured and grammatically accurate way will be practiced. Students will gain the ability to speak spontaneously and convey their ideas clearly and coherently. In the integrated tasks, test takers are evaluated on their ability to appropriately synthesize and effectively convey information from the reading and listening material; therefore practice listening and responding to information orally will be a key factor in this area of preparation.

4. Writing Skills
Academic writing skills, such as developing and writing an essay that explains and supports an opinion on an issue, will be practiced. Academic writing style and pre-writing will be fundamental in building the skills for success in this section of the test. Students will have the opportunity to practice and examine different types writing and produce their own writing as preparation.

5. Vocabulary and Reference
A fundamental part of any ability test; vocabulary development and reference skills such as using a dictionary effectively and efficiently will be practiced throughout the course. Students will be encouraged to infer vocabulary meaning from context and revise and build their vocabulary.

6. Study Procedures
Successful revision and efficient time management and study skills will help the student succeed in his/her test.
