Do you need to take the IELTS exam for university entrance or for work?
Kickstart School’s IELTS Exam preparation group course provides you with the necessary skills and knowledge to take the IELTS Academic exam with confidence.
My experience with Kickstart School has been amazing. I was looking for a preparation course in order to pass the IELTS Academic exam within two months. The employees of the organisation were very helpful and they eventually introduced me to my private teacher Shashi, as there was no possibility for me to attend the general classes on short notice. In the beginning, I was not sure if I had enough time to prepare myself for the exam within 6 lessons, but Shashi has motivated me to get the best out of every class. I could not have had a better teacher and I am really grateful for all the things she has taught me within these few weeks.
My class with Kickstart was really great. It provided me with a lot of information and my teacher was very knowledgeable. I felt that I could ask her anything about my English skills. The course was structured clearly and I was aware on beforehand of everything that I would have to learn for the exam. My only concern would be that there are pretty big differences in level between the students in the class, which sometimes made it hard to find core topics to talk about that were a struggle for everyone. However, I think my teacher did a great job at managing the variety of levels present in the students in class.
The course was really intensive and useful. I’ve learned new skills and now I feel more confident and ready for the test.
The course has been very helpful for gaining an overall idea of the IELTS exam and a general preparation, good tips and useful materials have been shared through the lessons.
My experience was very good. I loved the teacher and how she really knows about the IELTS test and teaches us.
I really feel prepared for the exam because the teacher is good.
