Course contents:

The aim of the course is to prepare participants for the IELTS exam (target level: IELTS 6.0 and above). Using materials specifically designed for IELTS preparation, we will focus on reading, writing, listening and speaking skills through tasks similar to those included in the IELTS exam. We will also revise the most important grammatical structures and do extensive vocabulary work. In addition to language skills, participants will also acquire useful reading and listening strategies and general exam skills which are essential for a good IELTS result. JLU students taking the course for AfK credits will be expected to pass an exam (written and oral) at the end of the course.

Admission requirements:

  • a score of at least 60 points in the ZfbK online placement test, or
  • successful completion of an English B2.2, B2.3, B2.4 or C1 course at the ZfbK
  • external documentation (such as a course certificate or placement test) with a stated CEFR level above B1+
