There is no pass or fail. Students receive a mark for each paper (read, writing, listening and speaking) and an overall score out of 9.0. Most universities require a score between 5.5 and 7.5. The IELTS test dates are more flexible than the Cambridge exams. Exams are held almost every week.

'I took English lessons with Garry in order to improve my level and pass the IELTS Academic Test. The lessons were well-organised, dynamic and interesting! They helped me to prepare more effectively for the exam. Finally, I got a score of 7.5 which is the equivalent of C1 level. I recommend Garry as English teacher!'

‘I took a short and intensive IELTS exam preparation course with The Language House in order to be accepted for my Masters at a university in the Netherlands. My teacher was 100 per cent focused on the skills I needed to get the best result. He was always available to answer my questions and correct my work and suggest improvements. He knew how to guide and push me to get my English to the next level. After two months of hard work and lots of practice tests, I successfully passed my exam with an overall band of 7!  It was better than I had hoped for. I strongly recommend The Language House if you want to improve your English and also enjoy a friendly atmosphere for studying.’

Max Fuchs, Geneva, Masters student


'I had a one month intensive class with The Language House in Geneva in order to pass my IELTS test which is compulsory to take part in an exchange program in my university. I got an overall score of 7.0 and all my scores were above 6.0 which was the minimum level I needed. The classes given by The Language House were focused on the skills I needed. It was lot of work. My teacher Garry Littman clearly knew how to get my English to the next level. It was hard work, particularly the writing, but at the end it was definitely a course that will help me in my academic and professional life. I’m deeply thankful for having this great opportunity to study at The Language House and for the responsiveness and support of my teacher.'

Yael Massini, International Relations student

TOEIC – Test of English for International Communication

The TOEIC is an appropriate test to take if you need to have a certificate that shows your level of English in a work-related situation. We believe a Business English or professional English course is a better investment.
