FAQs

  • Are these courses suitable for the academic or the general training version of the IELTS?

    These courses are for both streams of the IELTS. The listening, speaking, and writing task 2 parts are exactly the same for both versions of the test. The reading and writing task 1 parts, however, are different. If the course title does not include the word 'general' or 'academic', this means it is the same for both of them.

  • How long will I have access to the courses after enrolling?

    The course is yours for six months. Once you join the course, your access will be activated for three months. If it expires before you have passed your exam, contact us on WhatsApp and we will be glad to extend it for three extra months free of charge.

  • I need to improve my IELTS score from band 5 to band 7. Are these courses going to help me?

    Yes. These courses are definitely going to help you. If you do all the practice tests and exercises included, you can get the score you are aiming for. But, keep in mind that it all depends on how serious you are about the test and how much time and effort you are willing to put in.

  • I have an elementary level of English. Are these courses going to help me?

    Unfortunately, no. In order to be able to have the full benefit of these courses, your English proficiency has to at least at an intermediate level.

  • What is the language of instruction going to be? English or Arabic?

    Everything in our courses is explained in English. No Arabic is spoken.

  • If I want to contact the instructor, can I do that?

    Yes. If there is any question that you need further explanation on, or if you feel like you need some sort of assistance, there will be weekly live office hours on Zoom, where the instructor can answer all your questions.

  • What if I do not like one of the courses?

    Our courses come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Make sure you watch the preview videos of each course before making the purchase to get a glimpse of the way we conduct our lessons.

  • How long will it take me to complete these courses?

    Each course has a different amount of content. The time you need to complete any course depends on how many hours you are planning on studying each day. To get the maximum benefit from any course, we recommend re-watching the course at least once to get everything to stick in your mind.

  • Will anyone assess my writing or speaking skills?

    The courses do not include any English assessment services. This helps to keep the price down.

  • What is the order in which I should watch the courses?

    We recommend starting with the listening course, then the reading, writing task 2, writing task 1, and finally the speaking course.

  • Do I have to watch the 'Introduction to the IELTS' course?

    It depends. If you have taken the IELTS test before or if you know how it works, you do not have to. But, if you have absolutely no idea about the test and want to take the test for the first time, we highly recommend watching that course before purchasing any of the other courses. It is only going to take less than two hours.
