IELTS and Trinity ISE Preparation


The course will start at our accredited school in Newcastle week beginning 10 July 2017 and end 1 September 2017 – 8 weeks of classes.

The course will run on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, 10:00 to 13:00 from Tuesday 11 July to Friday 1 September

If you would prefer to take this course at our premises in Sunderland or elsewhere, please  contact us.  This is dependent on student demand

Please note that each class ‘hour’ is 55 minutes, to allow for a short break in the middle of each class. This allows 11 hours of taught class time each week, for 8 weeks.

What can I prepare for? This course prepares students for the academic IELTS exam, a globally recognised exam taken by students who plan to study or work in English.  You can find out more about IELTS on the British Council Take IELTS website.  The course is also suitable for those who wish to prepare for the Trinity ISE II or ISE III, which is also taken by students for academic study and employability – find out more on the Trinity College website.

What will I study? The course will cover all four skills tested in IELTS and ISE exams; reading, writing, listening and speaking, using a range of materials including test questions. You will also cover the language (grammar, vocabulary etc.,) required for a good score in the exam, and in English generally at this level.

My English isn’t good, can I still do this course? Most students doing this courses are aiming to achieve scores of 6.5 or above in an Academic IELTS exam, or ISE II or III. We therefore recommend that students are ready to study at B2 level (UK Skills for Life ESOL level 1) before starting the course. Before you register for the course, we will arrange a test to check your level.

How much does it cost? £480 including a course book. Fees can be paid in cash at our office or online via bank transfer (see fees). It is also possible to pay in instalments via direct debit – the fee must be paid in full by the middle of the course.

How big are the classes? The minimum size is 6 and the maximum is 12.

How old must I be? The minimum age is 18

How can I join the class? If you are interested, please contact us or come and see us so that we can check your level and advise you.

How do I take the exam? Action Language Pro Newcastle is not an IELTS  or Trinity examination centre, so you must arrange to take the exam at another centre. This will cost £150- £250, depending on whether you need to take a UKVI exam. Please go to our links page to find out more about which exam and centre are right for you.

What happens if I pay for a course and can’t complete it?  If you need to cancel, we will provide a refund, minus a £10 admin fee, up to one week before the start of the course.  Once the course has started we are unable to offer refunds, but please come and see us if you are having problems and we can try to help.

Where can I find out more? You can read our Student handbook, look at the information for Students or contact us


“Passing IELTS with the support of Action Language helped me to start pursuing my career in nursing but more than that having a formal revision class and great tutors helped me to prepare myself for the exam. Passing IELTS totally changed my life”
