Expert IELTS Group Learning Courses – It’s Not Rocket Science

Our unique program (IELTS is Not Rocket Science 🚀™ ) offers you breakthrough results with our proprietary techniques.

Achieving a high band score in the IELTS exam is your key to starting a new life either in your own country or in an English-speaking one. With a high band score you can access many educational opportunities, career prospects and much more. But, performing well in the IELTS test isn’t just about understanding written and spoken English but mastering the test and its structure.

This is why, at English With An Expert, we’ve taken our experience in providing personalised IELTS lessons to students around the world and are now offering IELTS Group Lessons to allow candidates the help of a professional tutor but without the added cost of the 1-1 approach which sometimes prices people out.

Working with professional IELTS tutors, like Andrew Turner here at English With An Expert, gives you so much more than self-study ever could on its own. Not only does it give you access to expert insights and strategies, but it also allows you to receive personalised feedback and direction that is impossible to find in textbooks or generic online resources.

The ultimate goal of our IELTS group lessons is to equip you with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to achieve the best possible outcome on your exam day. With our support, boosting your IELTS Writing score by up to 2 bands in just 10 minutes is not just a possibility—it’s a reality.

Why IELTS Group Lessons

Both self-study and 1-1 coaching have their benefits – however, IELTS group lessons provide a more dynamic, collaborative and cost-effective way for you to prepare for one of the most important exams of your life.

IELTS Group Lessons Come With Professional Guidance

Learning about the IELTS test and understanding exactly what you need to do in order to score high is difficult, and trying to do it all by yourself is nearly impossible. With the guidance of a professional tutor you’ll get a better understanding of the exam’s structure, question types, and time management strategies.

Our IELTS Group Lessons are led by expert IELTS tutors, who bring years of experience and a track record of success. Their insights and personalised feedback provide a clear path for you to master the IELTS exam.

IELTS Group Lessons Foster Collaborative Learning

Studying alongside your peers, all of whom share your goals and similar aspirations, offers a sense of community and mutual support. Collaborative learning means you benefit from the collective knowledge and perspectives of the group, enhancing your understanding and retention of material.

As well as this, having feedback and discussions with the other people in your IELTS group lessons introduces new and different viewpoints to your learning. In turn, this often helps motivate you and others to try different study techniques and pushes you to refine your skills and knowledge further.

IELTS Group Lessons Are More Cost Effective

We believe that access to high-quality IELTS preparation should not be a privilege but a right for all aspiring candidates. Whilst 1-1 IELTS coaching is one of the best ways to see rapid improvements in your band score, this is often not cheap. 

Group lessons provide the expert-led guidance of private tutoring at a fraction of the cost, which means even those without the budget for personal coaching can get expert help with the IELTS test.

Our Different IELTS Group Lesson Courses

The IELTS Group lessons centre around the Writing component of the exam. We have 3 different courses available as group lessons each focusing on improving different parts of the Writing section and helping you in the areas you’ll most need to improve if you want to access those higher band scores.

IELTS Writing Task 2 Course

 Our IELTS Writing Task 2 course focuses on writing high band score essays and addressing different question types such as; the To What Extent essay, the Advantages/Disadvantages essay, the Discuss Both Sides essay and the Two-question essay. All of this is covered in a 6-week long course that follows the following format:

  • Monday Video Lessons: We will begin each week with a video lesson that pre-teaches some of the skills you will need for the live session. The videos might cover structuring essays or letters, correcting grammar, and enriching your writing with high-level vocabulary. During the videos, we will introduce you to our proprietary Contextual Double Correction™ technique and 80/20 Linguistic/Grammar Genie™, speeding up your learning curve.


  • Wednesday Live Sessions: These live 75-minute classes will be based on essays written by former students (all of whom succeded on test day with the same techniques we will teach you). Together, we will edit and polish the essays until they have improved by around 2 bands and reached a band 8.0 level. The aim is to show you how you can do this yourself on test day so that you can reach the score you need.


  • Friday Co-working session:On Fridays, we will get together for a 90-minute co-working session. I’ll share a Task 1 and Task 2 Writing prompt for you to write about. Then for 20 minutes, we will mute our mics and work individually on the Task 1 essay. We will then take a 20-minute break to grab another coffee or ask questions about any part of the IELTS test or the English language. We will then have another 40-minute session in which we will work on our Task 2 essay. At the end, we will check in on each other’s progress and then sign off.


  • Writing Corrections: You can submit one of your essays to our Writing Correction service every two weeks. We will give you detailed feedback on your mistakes and create a version of our Linguistic Hit List™ just for you. This will become your roadmap showing you the way to IELTS success. Each correction will take us at least one hour since we will be diving deep into the mistakes you are making to better understand what you need to focus on.

IELTS Writing Task 1 (Academic) Course


This course will be structured as above but will also guide you through interpreting data, organising your response, and using appropriate language to describe trends or processes or compare the data given to you in the question.
