Express IELTS Preparation Course: UPDATED VERSION

Words from your tutor: Ms. Susan Jones: "Welcome!   Updated 9/2016.

We have received many messages from students asking to make the course more interactive and adapt the digital chalk format to Udemy format. 

We've listened to you! We've updated the course itself and the course exercises (outside the video exercises). It is now fully adapted to Udemy format. We fixed all the bugs related to exercises and updated all our videos.  

At IDEA almost 99 percent of recent students have achieved the score they needed.

The IELTS exam has become one of the most popular public examinations worldwide for students wishing to gain entrance to an English-language academic institution. Rather than getting a pass or fail the candidates receive a score from one to nine with most UK universities typically requiring a score of 6 or 6.5.

You need to take the IELTS test if you are applying for a job or to study in a college or university in an English-speaking country or if you are migrating to those countries, we hope you will enjoy your time with us. Good luck!"

In this course you will learn 4 components of IELTS test:


In the IELTS test, time is your enemy. Candidates who have taken the test and did not perform as well as they had hoped often complain that they were unable to give all the answers in the Listening Test because the tape was too fast. However, with our course this problem will be solved by constant listening to your English tutor - Ms. Susan Jones. You will soon get used to our British accent.


The faster and more accurately you read, the more questions you will be able to answer. In all the tests, the instructions, the example, and the questions themselves need to be read quickly, and must be well understood in order for you to have more time to find the answers.


Write short academic-style essays, including describing data or processes and presenting arguments coherently and cohesively. Interpret and describe graphical information or write a letter responding to a given situation. In this course you will find yourself in many such situations in order to practice your writing skills.


Make contributions to discussions on a variety of concrete and more abstract topics. Fluency, accuracy, range and relevance are practised. Review and practise all aspects of speaking during the course.


While it is true that not all words and phrases given as answers to questions in the Listening and Reading Tests need to be grammatically correct, it is often possible to work out the correct answer by using your knowledge of grammar. We will focus on grammar in detail during the course.
