Media & Advertising
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.
Food & Health
The IELTS gives every student a score for each of the 4 main language skills: listening, reading, speaking and writing.
