IELTS is an English proficiency test that an individual at upper intermediate level or higher can prepare for on his/her own. By preparing well and mastering the specific techniques, everyone can succeed in the IELTS Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking modules.
There is a lot of free IELTS material online but one can easily get lost on the Internet – something that can result in a waste of precious time and the possibility of missing important tips and information.
Why online courses can help you
Taking an online IELTS course has the benefit of providing the necessary information in an organised way. It is similar to taking a face-to-face classroom lesson but it is less costly and more convenient. You can do it in the comfort of your own home, on the computer, mobile or tablet. You can take an online course any time, you can see your progress, download course content, get online support and updates anytime on any device. Finally, an online course reduces the need to collect and search for content online. This saves valuable time which leaves more time for IELTS practice.
What to look for in an online IELTS course
You should choose an online course based on your needs. For example, do you need a Speaking-only course or a full preparation course?
You also need to look for specific standards before choosing an online IELTS course. For example,
- Is the instructor – and the course creator – an experienced IELTS tutor who will provide you with the best tips?
- Can you understand the instructor easily?
- Is there enough explanation in each lecture?
- Does the course provide adequate practice material?
- Is extra support available?
- Are other students satisfied with the course?
These are some questions you should ask before choosing which online IELTS course to take.
