The English for Academic Purposes preparation course at P.I.C.E. is suitable for students who want to take an IELTS test, for example for entry to further education in Australia (TAFE/university) or migration purposes. The course has the features of an exam course (intensive study program, tailored homework schedule and weekly exam practice).
IELTS tests all four language skills – Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. The Speaking test is a face-to-face interview with a certified Examiner. It is interactive and as close to a real-life situation as a test can get. This means your understanding of English is improved and valid for real life in an English-speaking country. More than 6000 organisations, including many government departments and universities, rely on IELTS. The IELTS scoring system is recognised globally, giving you a truly international result.
