The subject matter of reading for IELTS Academic and IELTS General Training is different. We provide training to the aspirants who want to study abroad or work abroad, in both the modules of writing.

In academic reading, 3 reading passages are provided to the candidates. These reading passages may be extracts of articles from various books, journals, magazines and newspapers. The candidates wanting to study abroad for an undergraduate or a postgraduate course generally find these passages interesting, appropriate and comprehensible.
We also make participants practice the IELTS exam style reading and inculcate amongst them the habit of writing the answers correctly because poor spelling and grammar are penalized and lead to low band scores. They practice various writing styles for example narrative, descriptive or discursive/argumentative.

Basic linguistic survival capabilities of a candidate are tested through this section by providing relevant text. To achieve the objective, general factual information - advertisements, notices, and timetables –is provided.
The second section ‘Workplace survival’ focuses on the workplace context.Hence it contains texts related to job descriptions, job advertisements, contracts, staff development and training materials.
