IELTS (The International English Language Testing System) is the world's leading test of English for higher education (for entry to college & university), immigration and employment.
It measures your ability to communicate in English across all four language skills - Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking.
AICOL has a long and well-regarded history of achievements in IELTS test preparation. Our Director of Studies who has been with us since 1993, is a senior IELTS examiner, and our senior English for Academic Purposes teacher, who has been with AICOL for over 10 years, has a genuine commitment to the success of her students, and an enviable track record in producing IELTS test results.
IELTS test preparation is a component of our General English (Academic Purposes) Course. AICOL Gold Coast English school is an IELTS pre-test centre.
Students are prepared to sit the IELTS test through completion of past papers, and through concentrating on improving their weaknesses, whether they be in reading, writing, listening or speaking.
Our teachers and staff are just as nervous and expectant as our students when the time comes for the test results.
