When studying on an exam preparation course, a key factor in achieving a successful grade is familiarizing yourself with the structure of the test. A strong candidate knows exactly what type of questions they will face and also specifically how they should answer, knowing what kind of things that the examiner is looking for.

Irene Academe courses are created to instruct each individual student in the test requirements, so that even before you sit the test, you are already fully accustomed to the structure, so that there will be no nasty surprises or difficult questions. In that way, you can perform excellently, avoiding the famous ‘exam nerves’ and get the result that you deserve and need.

To make this possible, there must be top-quality teachers that have detailed understanding of the test format. This is where Irene Academe excels. Our outstanding teachers have successfully guided thousands of students through all available Academic English courses. Every week, every learner studying in the IELTS class for example, undergoes a rigorous and complete exam.

This “Friday testing” system (with the results given out on Saturday) results in all students becoming comfortable with the type of questions they will face, knowing their strengths, improving on their weaknesses and most importantly, certain in the knowledge that if they follow their teachers’ assured instructions and study hard, then they will easily become a success in Academic English… with a smile on their face, too!
