Emirates Institute for Banking and Financial Studies (EIBFS) offers IELTS exam preparation courses for students joining its academic program. Covering a range of topics, the course starts at the beginning of September and January and allows students to revise common grammar and language structures, develop skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing, and tackle sample questions. The course will additionally provide tips on how to avoid mistakes and maximize test results.
Students are required to attend three-hour classes, twice a week, either in the morning or evening. EIBFS will provide all core and supplementary materials covering the four modules found on the IELTS exam (Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing). The course will focus on familiarizing students with the various types of test questions encountered on the test. It will also equip them with strategies and tactics for maximizing test scores. Students will be required to work on course assignments and study outside of class hours utilizing self-study materials and available online resources.
The methodology (during and outside class hours) has proven to help improve individual IELTS test scores within a 0.5 to 1 IELTS band.
