Course Materials

Students are encouraged to bring their study binders which contain useful information, official marking rubrics, helpful exam strategies and level-appropriate exercises for building the four main skills to be tested which are Writing (Mondays), Reading (Tuesdays), Listening (Wednesdays) and Speaking (Thursdays).  Prepared materials are created by Glenn College while some materials are from the Cambridge IELTS textbook.

Methods of Evaluation

  1. Weekly individual homework assigned twice a week (worth a total of 30%)
  2. Weekly mock IELTS examinations every Friday (worth a total of 70%)

On Fridays, students will undertake a full IELTS mock examination with official practice material. All four skills are tested under timed conditions to emulate actual IELTS test conditions as closely as possible. Students will spend time working up to those particular skills throughout the week and be expected to complete the assigned homework set each Monday and Wednesday.

Delivery Method

Students have the option of taking this course online or in person. Students taking the IELTS course online have the option of doing live video lessons through the school’s website or watching pre-recorded lessons. All three options require students to complete homework twice a week as well as take a mock IELTS test each Friday.

Teaching Method

Both the in-person and distance classes will be conducted in a lecture format.
