IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is a process for testing English proficiency of people across the world and is required for university entry in most English-speaking countries. An IELTS score is also often required if you want to immigrate to Australia, whether it be for study, work, or complete migration.
The IELTS is broken down into four components: Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking. To gain a firm appreciation of what is expected, many people choose to undergo English for Academic Purposes (EAP) and IELTS lessons, in order to obtain the ideal preparation before attempting the test.
Our EAP/IELTS lessons and training programs will provide you with the study skills you will need at a university or higher education institution in an English-speaking country. Unlike many courses, at Milestones we don't just give IELTS practice tests. Our coaching staff believe that the best way to get a better score is by developing the skills you need so you understand the best strategies and techniques to improve your reading, writing, listening and speaking for the exam.
