Drexel University offers a series of STUDY-IN-CLASS (ELC, Room 009) and STUDY-AT-HOME (ONLINE) IELTS Test Preparation Seminars. Study for the IELTS exam with an expert ELC Drexel teacher specializing in IELTS test preparation.

These courses are dedicated to understanding, reviewing and practicing all four components of the IELTS exam: Listening, Speaking, Writing (Academic and General), and Reading (Academic and General). Participants may choose to join one, two, three or all four IELTS seminar courses.

We strongly advise all candidates--including native or near-native speakers of English--to familiarize themselves with the nature of IELTS exam questions. Understanding the type, number and structure of exam questions allows your IELTS scores to more accurately represent your true language abilities. You don’t want test inexperience to lower your score. This is especially important for native speakers who—having rarely taken a standardized English language exam—can be surprised by the structure and rules of standardized examination. Potentially disappointing scores can be avoided with test familiarity.  IELTS.org provides free practice materials.

Registration and payment is the same. All seminar students--both in-class and online students--receive internet access to all online test prep materials.
