IELTS Exam Preparation

An IELTS Exam score is a reliable indicator of true-to-life ability to communicate in English for education, immigration and professional accreditation. It is an internationally recognised measure of English Language proficiency for university entry in English speaking countries (Academic module).


The General Training module is designed to test basic survival skills in a broad social and educational context. It is suitable for students who plan to undertake work experience or training programs in an English-speaking country, or for immigration requirements to Australia, Canada and New Zealand.


Our 12 week full time IELTS Exam Preparation course prepares students to take the IELTS examination. The course focuses on the Academic module - the four components of the examination: Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking plus vocabulary building. Speaking and listening components are the same for the Academic and the General training module. BBELS Blog post - IELTS at BBELS.


Our IELTS courses are taught by experienced IELTS examiners or Cambridge teachers.


Important - students are expected to be motivated to achieve preferred scores in the IELTS exam. BBELS exam courses require active participation and consistent class attendance, as well as regular homework completion.
