English Language Course
This course provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the IELTS examination and how to prepare and practise for the assessment in a fun and proactive environment.

In addition to working on the students’ writing style, the course introduces them to the basic elements of the IELTS exam, which many students will take before submitting an application to university.
The difference between IELTS at Maxer with others
IELTS comes in two versions: General and Academic. To ensure that all of our students to achieve the best results at the end of courses, we provide a free interview with each student to fully understand their current English level and requirements; and we will tailor courses with our Academic Managers for each group of students.
Over a period of two weeks, students identify, practise and improve the reading and writing skills that will be necessary in their future study. The course focuses on the specific requirements of formal and academic English, as opposed to the more informal English that many students may have studied to date.
