IELTS Topics

After assessing your level, our tutors will tailor your course to the language that you need the most. We offer 4 streams based on the topics specified by the IELTS regulations. With each stream you will receive a package of carefully curated material (both written and spoken) that is interesting, accessible to your current level, and relevant to the particular demands of the IELTS examination. The material is taken from sources that are used on a daily basis by native speakers, arranged and supported in a way that makes your acquisition of the language as comprehensive and straight-forward as possible.

Stream 1




Family & Children

Stream 2

Business & Money

Media & Advertising



Stream 3





Each Media Package consists of material taken from relevant news articles, editorials, podcasts, specialized reports, radio shows, short stories and blogs. Transcripts and wordlists are provided to assist your use of the listening material. Media Packages are designed both to reinforce the vocabulary and grammar that is learnt in class, and to increase each student's exposure to (and comfort with) naturally-produced English, in its many varieties.

IELTS Skillsets

The IELTS gives every student a score for each of the 4 main language skills: listening, reading, speaking and writing. At Hertford, we understand that proper preparation for the IELTS requires a focus on each student's individual weaknesses. As such, you can tailor your course to concentrate on either input or output. Our Media Packages are also adapted according to the focus you choose for your lessons with our tutors.
