IELTS Training at Edwise

We use the Cambridge IELTS Book, an official publication for IELTS, to conduct classroom sessions. For Listening, firstly the test is played non-stop and students answer the questions as they listen. Once the test is over, the answers are given explaining the focus on spellings, conventions of writing, and marking scheme.

For Reading, our teachers provide the details about various question types and explain the approach to answer the same. After introductory discussion, usually, the passages are assigned and students are asked to complete the same. Towards the end of each test, questions are discussed with the students, and answers are explained. For the writing segment, firstly the types of tasks are explained with essay-writing guidelines.

Students are made to practice 4 essays of task 1 type and 4 essays of task 2 type. Each essay is assessed and guidelines are provided to make the essay better. For the speaking section, one-on-one sessions are conducted exactly on the lines of the test and the answers are discussed after the session. Scores are given and guidelines are provided to improve the scores.
