IELTS Intensive is a short course offering 40 hours of classroom study, with an optional 20 hours of additional practice material for extended classroom use or homework. It is designed to strike a balance between test training and practice in all four skills areas. IELTS Intensive is aimed at students who require an IELTS band score of 5.5 - 6.5, who are close to achieving this level of academic language proficiency, but who need to improve their IELTS performance. * It is a genuinely short course which means teachers do not have to use content selectively. * The focus on evaluating models and analysing test prompts helps students engage confidently with test tasks. * Additional test practice material after every two units reviews task types presented in the preceding units in a format that closely reflects the test. * Two audio CDs, full audio transcripts and an answer key with full sample answers are included in the back of the book.
