Level 4 (Test Ready) is a theme-based, self-paced course designed to help you:

  • build academic vocabulary and collocations 

  • improve your academic skills 

  • familiarise yourself with academic, authentic, ’test-like’ materials

  • practise the task types common to English proficiency exams (IELTS, PTE-A and TOEFL)

  • build general knowledge on a range of subjects 

  • boost confidence in writing and speaking about a variety of topics


How does it work?

You can study at your own pace through the Topic Lessons, and come along to our Live Classes to learn together.


Who is the course for?


What level English should I have?

To benefit from the course, you should be at the high intermediate (B1+) / upper intermediate (B2) level (IELTS 5.5+ / PTE 43+ / TOEFL 46+). 


What if my level is higher than B2?

If you are already an advanced level learner (C1+), the course provides a solid revision of valuable vocabulary and skills, as well as exposure to common test topics. At the end of each lesson, there are also links to extension material for further study.


How is the course organised?


Level 4 (Test Ready) is divided into 6 themed modules:

  • Culture and Society

  • The Environment

  • Health

  • Education

  • Science and Technology

Each module has 3 Topic Lessons. In each lesson, you will:


    • Learn, practise and use new vocabulary & collocations

    • Practise reading and listening skills

    • Practise speaking and writing


Your work is scored automatically throughout, and there is a final quiz at the end of each Module.
