What Is IELTS?

The International English Language Testing System, or IELTS, is a standardised international test of English proficiency for non-native speakers of the language. This test is for those who wish to work or study where English is the main language of communication. There are, in fact, different types of IELTS tests, each of which will prepare you to use English in different contexts. They are:

IELTS for migration
IELTS for study
IELTS for work

Fortunately, we, British Horizons, will prepare you in such a way so that you feel confident and self-assured when heading into your IELTS exam.

IELTS Preparation at British Horizons

Taking the globally recognised IELTS exam will open doors to new and exciting opportunities. In other words, it can greatly enhance your chances to study or work around the world! This is why we take great pride when it comes to supporting you during your journey to becoming proficient in English.  

The IELTS Programme at British Horizons focuses on developing the four key skills: speaking, writing, reading and listening. The fact that our programme is face-to-face is highly effective as this will put your conversational skills into great practice and, in turn, will prepare you for the speaking element of your exam. During your classes, you will also hone your other skills through regular reading, writing and listening activities. We give equal importance to each of the key skills so that you become a confident all-rounded English speaker.


Additionally, we refuse to let our students enter an exam room blind. Throughout the course, you will be able to familiarise yourself with the format of the exam as well as with the types of questions that you will, most likely, have to answer. As such, we will ensure that you get the chance to complete a wealth of practice questions so that you truly feel well-equipped with all of the assets and knowledge required to ace your exam! Finally, in order to maximise your success, our teachers will provide regular feedback that has been tailored specifically around your performance.

We are proud of what our students can achieve and we look forward to joining you on your road to success.
