The Boston School’s Academic IELTS Speaking and Writing Task Preparation Courses

The Boston School CEFR IELTS Levels Compared

We offer both individual and group preparation courses for the Academic IELTS Speaking and Writing Task sections.

Our course focuses on developing and applying critical thinking skills, which will assist students to create clear, logical reports and essays as well as speak with more clarity.  This can prove helpful not not only in preparing them for the Academic IELTS Test but also for oral presentation and report writing skills, which  may be encountered in a work or university setting.
