IELTS Intensive is a short course offering 40 hours of classroom study, with an optional 20 hours of additional practice material for extended classroom use or homework. It is designed to strike a balance between test training and practice in all four skills areas.
IELTS Intensive is aimed at students who require an IELTS band score of 5.5 – 6.5, who are close to achieving this level of academic language proficiency, but who need to improve their IELTS performance.
It is a genuinely short course which means teachers do not have to use content selectively.
The focus on evaluating models and analysing test prompts helps students engage confidently with test tasks.
Additional test practice material after every two units reviews task types presented in the preceding units in a format that closely reflects the test.
Two audio CDs, full audio transcripts and an answer key with full sample answers are included in the back of the book.
