Free IELTS Course Online from the British Council

Are you looking for a free IELTS course online? Do you want to learn from a senior IELTS teacher at the British Council? As you’re here, the answer to both questions is probably Yes!

You may have heard lots of talk about MOOCs in recent years. MOOCs – or Massive Open Online Courses – allow free access to learning for anyone with an internet connection.

The British Council has teamed up with FutureLearn to offer a six-week course in IELTS. Understanding IELTS: Techniques for English Language Tests will launch on May 11th 2015 and last for six weeks.

The course covers all four sections of the IELTS test: Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. It is delivered completely online and you’ll learn practical test techniques that you can apply to all English language tests and not just IELTS.

Who is the online course for?

The course is suitable for intermediate English speakers intending to take IELTS or another test of English. Before signing up, please make sure you can commit at least two hours a week to work your way through the course content. Like most MOOCs, this is not an accredited course. However, there is an option to purchase a Statement of Participation at the end.

Will my IELTS answers be scored?

The course is delivered by video tutors and, because there are many thousands of students, there is no teacher feedback on an individual basis. However, you will have the opportunity to participate in an online community and have your answers evaluated by other course participants.

How do I join?

It takes only a few seconds to enrol in this course at FutureLearn. You just need to submit an email address and then wait for the first video lesson to be made available online.

Don’t miss this fabulous opportunity to take a free IELTS course online!
