How to do your IELTS course
To do your course, go to "My Course" or "Classroom". Your lessons are listed in blue the box on the right of the message board.
To begin the lesson click "Start" to go to the first activity.
When you have completed all the activities in the lesson, or wish to try another lesson, close the page by clicking on "Close" in the bar at the top of the page. You will then go back to the list of lessons for the week where you can choose another lesson.
Answers and feedbackAll of the exercises tell you whether your answer is correct or not. You get instant feedback on your answers.
Each exercise is then scored individually. You are given a percentage score based on how many correct answers you give and how many attempts you had before you got the answer right.
In many of the exercises you will also be told not only if your answer is incorrect, but given feedback telling you where to find the correct information or why your answer was not the right one. Many of our lessons have small "Hint" pictures which you can see when you have not given a correct answer. If you hold your mouse over each picture, you will see an explanation for the answer or a clue where to find the right answer.
You will need to send written work to your tutor. Simply type your writing into the form in each assignment page and then press "Submit". This will be sent to your personal tutor. HINT It is a very good idea to type your homework in a word document first so you have a copy in case anything is lost.
