The Secret to your Success

IELTS, TOEFL and Cambridge Exams: get the strategies and practice that you need.

We offer exam preparation courses for IELTS, TOEFL, and the Cambridge suite: PET, FCE, CAE and CPE.

You’ll have your own personal teacher who understands the fine detail of your exam. Strategy is key, and your teacher will show you how to approach questions to maximise your potential score.

Class time will allow you plenty of time to speak, since that’s the hardest part to practise alone. Written assignments will be set as homework and marked by your teacher. You will also have access to a range of online materials to help you get all the practice you need in all four skills: writing, speaking, listening and reading.

Getting into University: IELTS, TOEFL, or Cambridge?

Both the IELTS and TOEFL are widely accepted for access to university courses worldwide but you should first check with the institutions that you’re applying to. They are orientated towards students and the skills needed to complete a university course in English.

The Cambridge CAE (Certificate of Advanced English) and CPE (Certificate of Proficiency in English) are increasingly accepted as a university entrance qualification but they are designed as general English courses. They certify your level but don’t concentrate on the skills, language and situations specific to university life.

A format to suit you

Virtual

Since the greater part of the IELTS and TOEFL exams is internet-based, it makes perfect sense to get your tuition online. What’s more, all the materials you need are available on the web!

We also have online courses for the Cambridge suite, which require a separate book.

Face to Face

If you live centrally in Barcelona or Girona, you have the option of a teacher coming to you. Please check with us to see whether your address qualifies.

The course content is the same as our online course so if you are studying for IELTS or TOEFL, you will need access to a computer during your class.
