This course is designed to help you improve your performance in the IELTS test, as well as your understanding and production of the English language overall. You will improve your understanding of written and spoken English, improve your pronunciation and gain confidence in speaking, listening, reading and writing and you will also develop a greater awareness of grammar structure and vocabulary, in order to communicate more fluently and effectively in English. This course focus on communicative language skills for listening and speaking; these skills are designed to increase your knowledge of vocabulary, idioms and grammar.
