5 Benefits of Taking the TVSS IELTS Course

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is the world’s leading English language test. It is widely accepted as part of university admissions procedures around the world and is recognised by 100% of UK universities.

The test is designed for people who want to study or work where English is commonly used and it covers listening, reading, writing, and speaking. Our course will help students aged 12-17 prepare for the exam and communicate in English in everyday situations.

Students at our English language summer school at Rugby School will have the opportunity to learn in small classes of no more than 15 students and will enjoy a varied range of afternoon recreational activities. All students on the IELTS course will take the exam at the end.

Read on to discover five benefits of booking your child on our English language summer school course.

1. It Helps Your Child Prepare to Study at Universities Around the World

The Thames Valley Summer School’s IELTS course is the perfect test for students who want to go on to study at an English-speaking university or college. The results from the IELTS are accepted as proof of English language ability by all universities in the UK, as well as higher education institutions around the world. This means that your child will be prepared to study in any English-speaking university or college!

2. It Helps Your Child Improve Their English with Daily Recreational Activities

The way that the IELTS exam preparationis structured at our English language summer school means that students will have plenty of opportunities to practise their English outside theclassroom.

Every afternoon, students will be able to take part in sports and creative activities such as volleyball, tennis, dance, arts and crafts, and drama. These give students the perfect chance to practise their English with native speakers outside the classroom.

In the evenings, there will also be social events like discos, karaoke, BBQs, house competitions, fashion shows, language quizzes, and film nights. The opportunities to practise English, have fun and make friends along the way are endless!

3. Your Child Can Explore UK and London Landmarks while Studying

Another benefit of studying for the IELTS exam at our English language summer school is that your child will be able to explore London and the UK. Every week, students will have one half day and one full day excursion to some of the UK’s best cultural landmarks. For example, students might visit the British Museum, Natural History Museum, London Eye or perhaps take a river cruise on the Thames.

4. Students Will Get Their Results Two Weeks After The Exam

At the end of the course, students will take the IELTS exam, which takes 2 hours and 45 minutes to complete. They’ll then be sent their results approximately 2 weeks after the exam date. It is worth noting that you cannot fail an IELTS exam – everyone receives a band score, for example 1 to 9.

5. Your Child Can Learn Faster With Small Class Sizes

The maximum number of students per classroom at our English language summer school is 15 and there is always at least one teacher for every 13 to 14 students. This means that your child will learn more effectively and the teacher is always on hand to answer questions and provide help.
