Vocabulary Builder, Idioms, Quizzes, Jokes

Requirements

  • Basic English understanding
Description

This course gives IELTS candidates new vocabulary, practice mini listening tests, grammar revision and western culture in many small lessons. There are stories, jokes, plenty of new words and as you listen, the text will scroll down the screen too. This will help with your listening skills.

This course is part of my free IELTS materials on Udemy. I also have two brand new listening and reading IELTS mock tests which are separate courses. When you've done both my free IELTS courses, why not try doing a mock test.

Enjoy the course and rate the course when you have finished.
