Ready for IELTS

Our new IELTS preparation course combines the successful elements of the Ready For...series and an experienced author team to ensure students aiming for IELTS bands 5 -6.5/7 are ready for success!

All for skills are systematically and progressively developed and practical in each unit, while in-depth exam training is presented in the 'What to expect in the exam' and 'How to go about it' help boxes. There is a complete IELTS grammar syllabus, and vocabulary and word-building skills make up a key part of the course.

    Ready for IELTS is our clear choice for an exam preparation course. No other core text presents tasks as well, or with such adherence to the actual exam. All skills are developed systematically and in line with the examiner’s criteria, particularly the writing. We love it. Sharon Chalmers, Director of Studies, Live Language
