Are you looking for a free IELTS online course? Well, we have good news for you! The British Council is going to provide free IELTS online course starting May 29.
The course focuses on the IELTS test (International English Language Testing System). IELTS is the world’s most popular English language test for higher education and global migration. IELTS is accepted by over 9,000 organizations worldwide including universities, employers, immigration authorities and professional bodies. Over 2 million IELTS tests are taken globally every year.
The British Council has teamed up with FutureLearn to offer a six-week course in IELTS. Understanding IELTS: Techniques for English Language Tests will launch on May 29 and last for six weeks.
The free IELTS online course covers all four sections of the IELTS test: Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. It is delivered completely online and you’ll learn practical test techniques that you can apply to all English language tests and not just IELTS.
Who is the online IELTS course for?
The course is for intermediate English speakers intending to take IELTS or any other English test. Before signing up to the course, you should make sure you can commit at least two hours a week to work your way through the course content. But, if you don’t think you can give that much of time to this course, then this course is definitely not for you.
Will my IELTS answers be scored?
The course will be delivered by video tutors and, because there will be a lot of students taking the online course, there will not be a teacher feedback on an individual basis. However, you will have the opportunity to participate in an online community and have your answers evaluated by other course participants.
