Welcome to Lärkkulla’s Intensive IELTS course, which is designed to prepare you for the Academic version of the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) exam.  This English qualification is recognized by universities world-wide and is a must-have qualification for many students wishing to study in English at third level, both at home and abroad. 


The main aim is for you to get as high an Overall Band Score as possible.  The Overall Band Score is the number (from 0-9) that you get on your Test Results Form approximately three weeks after the exam.

To achieve this, our aims are as follows:

  • To help you develop the skills you need to improve your listening, reading, writing and speaking
  • To provide you information and advice about the IELTS exam
  • To let you practice IELTS exam tasks
  • To improve  your vocabulary and grammar

Our course is divided into eight parts, with individual units lasting one week. Each unit focuses on a different theme, and all units comprise listening, reading, writing and speaking components. At the end of each week there will be a short exam where you can practise the skills you have acquired during the unit. 

Students will receive feedback on their progress, as well as tips and advice on what to do (and what NOT to do) during the exam. Exam technique is absolutely essential if you want to score well in your IELTS exam. 

As one unit is covered each week, it is possible for students to participate in this course for one, two or indeed all eight weeks of the course and still benefit enormously from our IELTS preparation study. So why not sign up today and get the IELTS results that you deserve?

Lärkkulla will provide all the necessary study materials.
