Fabrizio studied on an IELTS course with us at Tti School of English last year! He also had the opportunity to experience our 30+ General English Course and CAE Exam Preparation Course. Read on to know more about his experience on these courses and at the school.
What made you decide to come to Tti School and do an IELTS Preparation Course?
I’m an Italian doctor, and I retired in my country in September 2016. Then, I moved to London and I was trying to join the General Medical Council to work here as a doctor. So, I was informed that an IELTS exam with an average band score of 7.5, with no less than 7 in each module was a requirement.
Can you tell me a little about IELTS Preparation Course?
The purpose of the course is to teach students the strategy and structure of the exam.The IELTS exam is divided into 4 sections consisting of listening, reading, writing and speaking part.
In my opinion, a knowledge of English adequate to IELTS band aimed at is mandatory.
The IELTS Preparation Course should not be your option if you are thinking to improve your general English knowledge. There are other courses for that at Tti School, for example, the General English Course.
What do you study on Tti’s IELTS Preparation Course?
The syllabus is mainly about the different modules and tasks of the exam, including selected vocabulary and grammatical structures. Moreover, many mock exams were performed.
Who which you recommend IELTS Preparation Course to?
I would recommend the course to anyone specifically needs this certification for work or who want to study at university in an English speaking country. I would reinforce that a general adequate English knowledge is highly recommended. It is also important to remember that IELTS is not a pass/fail exam.
How has your experience in Tti School and Camden been?
My experience has been both really exciting and instructive. Tti School is well organised, it offers a wide range of activities besides lessons. E-learning is extremely useful and you have access up to 3 months after the end of the course. All teachers are first-class and ready to listen and advise you. A special mention goes to the 30+ class which is really enjoyable for more mature students like me. Nevertheless, I found very challenging dealing also with millennials! The staff are effective and friendly.
In conclusion, I would like to recommend Tti School to all people wishing a deep formation in English as a second language. Also, the venue is convenient and, even if I did not have the chance of using it, enjoyed it, all my classmates told me that accommodation provided by the school is very comfortable and, in most cases, within walking distance.
Last but not least, I found a group of friends among teachers, staff and classmates and I still miss them.
Thank you Fabrizio for this lovely blog and your kind words! We so enjoyed having you here at Tti School!
