Our Reading packages

Do you know how to tackle every type of IELTS reading question but still can’t get the score you need? Then it’s time to think again and try a new approach! Take your skills to the next level with one of our IELTS reading packages. With separate intensive courses for General Training and Academic students, and the option to add one-to-one classes with an expert, we have a package to suit your specific reading needs.

Our 5-day intensive Reading course

In this course, our reading expert will break down every type of IELTS question so that you can build your reading skills up. Learn to go way beyond skimming and scanning to master more advanced techniques that will allow you to “read once but read well”.

In fact, by the end of the course, you will be able to confidently tackle any IELTS reading task. That means no more fear of tricky True, False, Not Given questions or complex Headings Match! Plus, you will have the time management skills to finish the exam within 60 minutes.

  • Learn from a genuine IELTS reading expert

    All our teachers are native speakers, hold a CELTA certificate, and have over 5 years' experience helping students achieve their target scores. In other words, you can trust that all of the advice our teachers give is 100% accurate.

  • Every type of IELTS reading question covered

    From matching headings, people and sentence-endings, to choosing between True, False, Not Given and multiple choice answers, the course will break down and simplify every type of IELTS reading question for you.

  • 5 x 75 minute classes

    The intensive course takes place over one week in five 75 minute classes (Monday to Friday). That’s over 6 hours of intensive lessons designed specifically to improve your IELTS listening skills.

  • Small group sizes

    There will never be more than 8 students in each intensive reading course to ensure that you receive personal guidance and feedback from our expert throughout the course.

  • NO questions from the Cambridge 1–15 series

    Have you completed all of the Cambridge IELTS books? No problem! Our course is based on high-quality questions from other sources meaning that you can practice your improved listening skills on brand new material.

  • Daily IELTS reading homework

    Our teaching doesn’t stop when the lesson ends. You will complete online practice activities each day to revise the day’s skills and improve further. Review these with your reading expert in the next class.

Our weekly General Training Reading timetable

  • Day one

    Clearing your confusion about True / False / Not Given

    Section One of the exam tests your ability to survive socially in an English speaking country by checking that you can understand and find basic information in multiple texts. 99% of the time, that means having to answer True, False, Not Given questions quickly and accurately. Guess what? That is exactly what we will teach you to do today!

  • Day two

    Every type of Completion Question (and some short answer questions too!)

    In Section Two, the focus moves from everyday life to the world of work and legal texts. Usually the questions here require you to complete sentences, notes or even flow charts, and to have a good understanding of the language rules. By the end of the lesson, you should be able to tackle them with confidence.

  • Day three

    Everything you know about Headings Match Questions is wrong!

    I sometimes feel sorry for Headings Match questions. They are universally hated by IELTS students but only because they are totally misunderstood. If you think that “reading the first and last line of a paragraph” is the right way to approach them, your mind is going to be blown today!

  • Day four

    Why you can’t scan for Information Match Questions!

    Continuing our journey through the more complicated Section Three questions, today we focus on Information Match questions. Learn how to identify a writer’s purpose, so you can determine the function of a sentence. Plus, we will discuss how you can “read once, but read well”.

  • Day five

    Matching and Multiple Choice made easy!

    In the final lesson, we will arm you with techniques to deal with the final set of Section Three questions - Multiple Choice and Matching. Thanks to skills you have learned earlier in the course, I am confident that you will find these questions much easier to tackle than you did 5 days ago - in fact, we guarantee it!

Our weekly Academic reading timetable

  • Day one

    Clearing your confusion about True / False / Not Given

    Today, we hit the ground running by unlocking the mysteries of IELTS True, False, Not Given questions. Learn to recognise key words and a range of control key words and phrases. Plus, we will totally clear your confusion between False and Not Given with our ONE simple rule that never fails!

  • Day two

    Everything you know about Headings Match Questions is wrong!

    If you think that “reading the first and last line of a paragraph” is the right way to approach Headings Match questions, your mind is going to be blown today! Learn how to use headings to predict the information you expect to find in each paragraph and how to summarise main ideas in a few words - those are the skills you really need!

  • Day three

    Why you can’t scan for Information Match Questions!

    Just like Headings Match questions, Information Match are another ‘slow” question type that requires a deep analysis of the text. Today learn how to identify a writer’s purpose so that you can locate specific sentences with ease. Plus, see how you can combine slow and quick questions so that you can “read once but read well”.

  • Day four

    Making the right Multiple Choice

    You may have a 25% chance of guessing the correct Multiple Choice answer, but today learn how eliminating incorrect answers and moving away from key words can improve your chances to 100%. Also, your reading expert will explain how sentence-ending match questions follow the same pattern as MCQs (so you get two techniques for the price of one today!).

  • Day five

    Unlocking Summary Completion and Matching questions

    This is it - you have reached the end of the course and should be feeling very confident about your reading skills. To finish, we will look at the two-types of Summary Completion questions and a range of Matching questions, so you will be able to confidently tackle any type of question on your exam day.
