View Curriculum
  • Students are expected to know what IELTS is and how each section of the exam (listening, reading, writing and speaking) is structured.
  • Students should have a basic level of English to understand lectures.
  • Students should have an understanding of simple grammar terms such as subjects, verbs, tenses, prepositions and conjunctions.

This course is designed for anyone who is preparing for IELTS and aiming for a band score of 7+, providing 'IELTS-specific' grammar help for IELTS takers.

Grammar is one of the four marking criteria for writing and speaking sections, and a key component to understand and get the right answers in listening and reading sections. Therefore, this course focuses on some of the most essential elements of grammar to help you score better in all sections of the IELTS test.

This course is, however, not a comprehensive, exhaustive reference to English grammar. Rather, this course deals with common grammar mistakes IELTS takers make and provides a clear explanation about the grammar elements to help you avoid making the same mistakes in your exam.

All you need to do is to follow three simple steps for each grammar element: Detect errors -Learn why it's wrong and how to make it right -Confirm your understanding through exercise questions. If you aim for a higher score and feel like your weak grammar prevents you from getting the score you want, this course can be the solution you've been looking for.

Don't waste your time studying less relevant aspects of grammar when you need to get a score of 7+ ASAP. Be IELTS specific, strengthen your grammar in the most important areas, and achieve your target score with this course.

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone who wants to improve their grammar to get a higher score will benefit from this course.
  • IELTS students who want to know some of the most common grammar mistakes and how to avoid them will find this course helpful.

I've been teaching English since 2001. I've taught numerous students from different backgrounds and helped them make improvements in their English proficiency. I believe teaching is my thing and it enriches my life as well as others. I constantly develop myself to be a better teacher and I care about my students and their progress.

In my former career, I worked as a high school teacher, an interpreter in many events including IDP Australia education fairs, and academic staff at the University of Sydney. 

In my spare time, I love playing music, cooking delicious dishes, baking cakes and reading novels.
