IELTS Examination Preparation Courses

IELTS, the International English Language Testing System is “the world’s proven English language test” for non-native English language speakers. It is recognised by over 6,000 worldwide employers, professional bodies, immigration authorities and other government agencies.

IELTS is for students who wish to follow an Academic Programme leading to the IELTS examination. Over 2 million tests were taken last year all over the world.

“Our Academic Manager is always available to help and advise students who are encountering difficulties with their language acquisition.”

Recognised by ACELS, a service of Quality and Qualifications in Ireland for English language teaching

How IELTS works

There is no pass or fail in the IELTS test. The students are graded on their performance using a score on the scale from 1 (the lowest) to 9 (the highest) for each part of the test (Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking). You can find all information on the ‘Information for Candidate’ booklet regarding the IELTS test components.

Your IELTS test is very important to us and our professional teachers in Cork English World will make sure to prepare you to achieve the best score possible.

On full time courses you will be provided with a coursebook (€20 deposit). During the course you will have access to our extensive reference library.  We also use a wide range of authentic material in the classroom which helps the student to extend their learning beyond the classroom.

Management of your development

Learner diaries  are prepared for all students who are on courses of 7  weeks or more.  The Learner diary is completed by your teacher at various intervals throughout your course.  It is a written record of your progress in English and a very important document.
Students can do an Exit Test to see their own improvement at the end of their stay.

Full-time and part-time courses do not include bank charges, bus pass, leisure programme and health  insurance. However we offer the following: free Wi-Fi internet access, English test & interview with highly trained teachers, welcome pack and a map of Cork.
