Option 3: General English IELTS Examination Course

LSI Portsmouth General English brand new student loungeTHE COURSE
Students can choose to prepare for the internationally-recognised IELTS examination. Our General English IELTS Examination course consists of mornings in a General English class (maximum 12 students per class), then every afternoon in a specialist IELTS preparation class (maximum 10 students per class). Both morning and afternoon classes consist of 12.5 hours of lessons. The minimum age to join this class is 18.

The IELTS test
The International English Language Testing System. This is the key language qualification which is required for entry into British, Australian (and many American) universities and colleges of higher education. LSI is one of the few private language schools to have been approved by the British Council as an official IELTS testing centre. We usually hold two examinations every month. At LSI, students can be given their exam results on the 13th day after the test! We can also assist and give advice to students with their university applications.  The cost of the IELTS exam in 2012 is £125. Please indicate on the Registration Form if you would like to take the IELTS test while you are at LSI and choose the test date you would like from the dates below.
