IELTS and Preparation Courses For Universities & Schools

Do you prepare students for the IELTS test but have trouble finding good materials to support your programmes?

Reach IELTS is an online course that both supports tutor-led courses and offers students independent study that can add real value to an institution’s IELTS portfolio.

Reach IELTS is not a bank of resources nor a series of practice tests. It takes learners through the Academic version of the test paper by paper, question by question, giving clear step by step guidance on how to achieve a high score in IELTS.

Reach IELTS is used by IELTS preparation providers such as university language departments and English language schools. It is used in blended courses and also provides schools and test centres with online options for those students unable to attend face-to-face classes.

There are 2 complete practice tests, written by a highly experienced test writer and taken under timed conditions. Writing and Speaking answers are recorded for teachers to review and mark. SLC provide additional practice tests where required.

The course is up to date and highly engaging, using the multi-media tools that today’s learners expect.

About the courses

The course was written by Annelie Phillips, a highly experienced IELTS teacher, teacher trainer, materials writer and ex-examiner. As a teacher on SLC’s IELTS preparation courses, Annelie consistently achieved excellent result and feedback. Her materials and methods are tried and tested.

Because it is digital, teachers can work with the course both interactively with their students in the classroom or outside as self-study or part of a flipped classroom programme. As a modular course, teachers can pick and choose which elements to include at which time. Students can also take Reach IELTS as a complementary course. SLC provides free teacher guides and teacher training to educators.

Teachers and institutions use the courses in multiple ways – as digital coursebooks, as supplementary learning, and as part of a flipped classroom approach. We can advise you how to integrate the materials to meet your objectives.
