Envision Announces Special Summer 2017 IELTS Prep Programs:
Dubai, UAE: Envision Language and Training Center in partnership with Copperstone Education has announced two special IELTS Programs for Summer-2017. The two organizations joined forces after learning that dozens of Dubai teachers have yet to meet the minimum required IELTS exam score in accordance with new KHDA regulations. Teachers of English or Language Arts are now required to have an academic IELTS exam score of 7.5. English medium teachers of other subjects must have an academic IELTS score of 7.
Envision’s IELTS Preparation for Teachers (IPT). IPT is a blended model course comprised of 2 weeks of small team project-based activities in a classroom setting and 12 hours of virtual team activities in groups of 4. The virtual team activities allow teachers to travel and enjoy their summer holiday while still working with their teams via webinar. Leonora Minnaar, School Outreach Coordinator for Copperstone explains, “Envision Language and Training Center offers one of the region’s best IELTS preparation courses. Copperstone has taken Envision’s proven process and custom-made a model for adult learners, specifically teachers. We employed the services of a leading Andragogy (adult learning) specialist from Canada to develop project-based, multi-sensory activities so teachers can get the results they need fast, without frustration.”
In addition to the teacher course, Envision is offering IELTS Preparation for College Admissions. The college admissions course ensures that students have a solid foundation in the four basic language skill sets: reading, listening, speaking, and writing. This program prepares students who need a minimum of 4.5 and above on the IELTS Exam for admission to university or other academic programs.
Arshad Khan, Director, Envision highlights “At Envision it has been our underlying principle to offer participants with the ideal level of coaching across all of the four sections of the IELTS exam. We have successfully trained scores of participants in the region, keen to clear this exam, to take on future challenges. With our special Summer-2017 program we are aiming to target a specific niche of students in teachers and prospective admission seekers. Our programs are conducted in convenient locations and timings, allowing participants the flexibility and peace of mind necessary to effectively undergo the trainings.”
Jeffery Smith, CEO, Copperstone Education added, “Copperstone is committed to empowering schools, teachers, and the families they serve with highly effective and proven education solutions that deliver real results. The IELTS summer programs is a huge step in this direction. Envision Language and Training Center is one of the UAE’s most respected and successful Business English and IELTS training centers. We are extremely excited to work in collaboration on this initiative.” via Edarabia.com
