IELTS Preparation online is structured in 3 parts
The sessions are structured in 3 parts, a preparatory part, a part of confrontation and real lesson, and a final part of “delivery”.
You will be given an IELTS related assignment that will prepare you for the online lesson. It will be a reading or listening, a video or a relevant article, or a “Flashpoint” taken from the school’s e-learning platform.
The teacher will ask you some discussion questions that you need to think about before starting the IELTS online session.
You will be able to discuss these questions with your classmates through the chat function on the video conferencing software – and the teacher will be able to monitor these conversations.
To get the most out of this experience it is important to be prepared and complete the work assigned by the teacher in preparation for the online lesson.
You will have 2 X 45 minutes long online IELTS preparation sessions with the teacher (total 90 minutes).
This will have the following format:
– 10-20 minutes: Introduction and explanation;
– 10 minutes: Targets and goals;
– 30 minutes: Discussion of questions and text;
– 10-20 minutes: Examination of any grammar or vocabulary questions;
– 10-20 minutes: setting a post-lecture assignment and assignment for the next day;
After the online IELTS session the teacher will assign a task to the mini group, which can be to develop a writing or to communicate orally with the other international members of the class. You will be able to upload this work to the online platform and receive feedback quickly.
These assignments (assignments) can be individual or involve collaboration with other group members – just like with the preparatory phase, you will be able to discuss online with the group and your teacher can monitor the chat.
Participation in all phases will be recorded in the register by the teacher.

WHAT PLATFORM IS USED?

DON’T WORRY, accessing these portals is easy and immediate, everything is very simple and will be explained to you.
How will the IELTS Preparation lessons take place?
The lessons will take place through Microsoft Teams, an easy and functional platform for remote learning that works from any desktop, tablet or phone.
Microsoft Teams has everything teachers need to create a real lesson, including sharing content and learning materials, assigning individual and group exercises, and a chat to facilitate interaction.
What does the Microsoft Teams platform include?
Are online lessons as effective as lessons at school?
Online lessons have a dynamic compared to normal lessons, so the number of students per class has been reduced to a maximum of 8 so that teachers can devote more time and attention to each student. There are tasks to be carried out in collaboration with the other students, before and after class. In this way, students can prepare before class and consolidate what they have learned after class.
Do the online classes follow the same program as the classroom classroom attendance classes?
