A short course to help you develop your reading, writing, listening and speaking skills for the IELTS ACADEMIC or IELTS GENERAL test. Working toward achieving a 6.5!

Who is this course for?

This course is for you if you are a student with level B1 or above and you are interested in improving your English in order to study abroad or here in the Netherlands. A CBE IELTS course will prepare you for the internationally-recognised IELTS examination which is very often a requirement for non-native speakers who wish to study in an English-speaking country. The course will prepare you for all aspects of studying in English, from following lectures, reading academic texts and summarising notes, giving a presentation, taking part in discussions and writing academic essays and reports. During the course you will practice the types of tasks which occur in the exam so that you are familiar with the exam content.
