We know it is hard to work with students of different levels, but getting them ready for IELTS is easy. You can give those students who struggle more support, perhaps more time to prepare, as is demonstrated in some of these activities. Alternatively, you can set extra tasks for the more advanced students, using the same core materials. 

As well as the material below you’ll find a wealth of freely available British Council resources elsewhere such as:

  • Road to IELTS – 10 hours of free preparation materials. You can also check out the Results Manager feature if your institute has signed up for this.
  • The British Council’s TeachingEnglish website.
  • The British Council’s LearnEnglish website has IELTS content.
