Taking the examination for International English Language Testing System (or commonly referred as IELTS) has evoked a high demand among individuals who would like to gauge their English proficiency. Furthermore, this is also one of the basic prerequisites for those who would like to study or work in an English-speaking country. Hence, examinations are locally conducted for IELTS four (4) times in a month in a year to answer the needs of those who are interested to take the test. Although self-training can be done, majority of the test-takers are still opting to enroll themselves in language centres or private schools which offer preparatory courses on IELTS.

This course is designed to complement the test-takers with general training on IELTS. Further, this programme is especially crafted to provide the learners with thorough training on specific skills which are required by the examination.
