Dominic Cole’s IELTS and Beyond

Free IELTS preparation

This is my personal IELTS website. It gives 100%  free help with IELTS preparation. The lessons here are what I do with my students in my class – just adapted for people studying by themselves on the internet. In it you will find:

  • My IELTS blog: these are daily lessons with suggestions on how to study all the 4 skills – almost all of them have exercises for you to do
  • Links to other good places: that’s the way the net works – it connects. I don’t have all the answers. No one does. So what I like  to do is send you off to the best places for free IELTS preparation online.
  • Short guides to the exam:

If you want more personal help, contact one of the tutors on the tutors page or leave me a comment. Almost a third of the comments here are by me. That means you have a 50/50 chance of a personal answer. More or less the only ones I don’t answer are the ones saying thank you!

Each day of the week I publish a new lesson on an IELTS skill. You can find  my daily IELTS lesson here or you can subscribe to the site and receive them in your inbox.
