Online Seminar for Success in IELTS

Online Seminar for Success in IELTS

Our Online Seminar for “Success in IELTS” provides comprehensive information for those planning to take the IELTS exam.  This information includes an overview of what to expect as well as more detailed guidance on each of the four parts of the exam; Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. During the online seminar, our instructor will offer lots of pointers to help you get the best possible results in each part of the exam. 

We strongly recommend the seminar for those of you getting ready for the IELTS exam. It will take approximately 90 minutes and you will be able to ask questions directly to the IELTS instructor throughout the seminar. 

Our instructor will address immensely useful academic words and discuss various writing examples with you in the free seminar, which will be held interactively with your questions as well as the survey questions that will be handed to you.
