ISLPR Language Service's 6-week English Course

A 6-week course designed to develop your reading and writing skills. March enrolments are now open!

Download  Course Description

This intensive course was designed to help ESL learners develop their reading & writing skills over a period of 6-weeks. The focus in this course is on developing a candidate's reading and writing skills by addressing some common issues we have come across when teaching and testing English. There is a particularly strong focus on writing in this course (the most problematic skill).

What can you expect? You will be sent a total of four workbooks  to complete during the 6-week course.  Each workbook will have a different focus (see the course outline below) and will provide theory and practicals to complete. You must complete the workbook and return it by the due date to receive feedback on the work completed. All workbooks that are submitted on time will be marked by an ISLPR tutor and feedback on how to improve will be provided.

Who is this course suitable for?

  • Any ESL learners who have basic English,
  • Teachers from overseas wishing to register to teach in Australia or New Zealand,
  • International students wanting to get into Australian or New Zealand universities, Colleges or Secondary Schools,
  • Other people wanting to get vocational registration in Australia or New Zealand,
  • Anyone wanting to improve their English skills before doing an English test (any English test!).
What do you get?

  • 4 workbooks, each designed to focus on your reading and writing skills.
    • When enrolling it is important to provide as much information as possible. We will provide some questions in your workbook that are specific to your background and needs.
  • Every workbook you complete and submit by the due date will be marked by an ISLPR tutor and sent back with feedback.
  • All participants will be given access to Dr Ingram's lecture on "Developing your reading & writing skills" (RRP $45.00)
  • A payment plan is available. Please contact and advise whether you would prefer a weekly, fortnightly or monthly payment plan.

Due to the fast turnaround time when marking workbooks, it is not possible to enter a course after the commencement date. You will have to wait for the next round to begin 

Will their be workshops?example

No. The purpose of this course is to provide participants the opportunity to continue practising and developing their English skills in their own time. We recognise that some learners prefer self-paced work and therefore, we have cut the workshop hours and instead increased the amount of personalised feedback candidates will receive from our tutors. If you prefer taking part in workshops, we recommend our 14-week course.

What is the difference between the 14-week online course and the 6-week course?

example 2

The 14-week course aims to provide participants with the knowledge and tools to self-correct their work and focuses on all four macro-skills. This 6-week course focuses on reading and writing only and will provide participants with personalised feedback on the work they complete. Please note that there are no direct contact hours in this course. Participants in the 6-week course are responsible for completing and submitting the workbooks by the due date in order to receive feedback from the course tutor.

At ILS, language testing is personal.

Language is an interactive and social skill. Therefore, we believe English should be taught and tested similarly.

ISLPR Language Services (ILS) developed the ISLPR® Test because we saw the need for a test that examined your real-life language. The ISLPR® Test is an interactive and personalised test. As the ISLPR test is personalised for each candidate, there are no tricks to pass the test. 

Why we're different:

  • We test your speaking, listening and reading skills in a one-to-one interview.
  • The content of your test is customised to match your area of expertise.
  • The ISLPR is the shortest English test, therefore minimising the chance of fatigue.
  • We offer individual English tutorials with accredited tutors.
  • We offer a feedback service so you can find out why you got that rating in your test.
