Do you need to prepare for the IELTS exam or improve your score? Enjoy doing this during our structured in depth IELTS preparation course.You learn about the set-up of the exam, practise test-taking strategies and develop your reading, writing, speaking and listening skills on the range of subjects relevant for the exam. The course is suitable for people who have reached CEF-level B2 or higher.

The IELTS exam training focuses on:

The course is suitable for people who have reached CEF-level B2 or higher. You are required to do a placement test developed by Babel. This test consists of two parts: multiple choice and writing. A teacher will assess your language skills. On the basis of your test result you will get an advice about which course is suitable for you. Please note that it can take up to 5 working days until your language level is assessed. In case you have already completed the placement test we kindly ask for your patience, the Babel Service Desk will review your application within a few days.
