How is the review program like?

To complete the program, our reviewees go through four stages.

Stage 1: Comprehensive Lectures

Here, reviewees are introduced to the IELTS test and are taught the general approaches for the listening, reading, writing and speaking tests. This stage, therefore, prepares them for the more extensive discussions and drills that constitute the meat of the program.

Stage 2: Drills & Discussions

The second stage is where reviewees go in-depth with specific techniques and approaches to master the four components of the IELTS. They normally go through guided drills and extensive discussions for them to develop the skills in acing the test. In a regular cycle, reviewees go through five full days of drills and discussions, and since the materials used are very comprehensive and are, therefore, never repeated, students learn new concepts every meeting.

Stage 3. Evaluation

The evaluation phase, which is the third stage, is the deciding phase. Here, students go through two full sets of the test and receive a score sheet that shows them how they fare in the tests. From here, students decide whether they take the actual test.

Stage 4. Dry-run

The dry-run is the phase where examinees go through a three-day simulation comprising of final inputs, simulated exams and a final briefing from the Center director. The objective of the dry-run is for the examinees to get to experience how the IELTS exam feels like in the real set-up.
