According to the website, their purpose is to supply the best available opportunity for students to develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes they need to reach their goals. The team includes professors, faculty, and other prominent educators from the UTS community.

The IELTS test consists of four sections: speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Study English IELTS Preparation is available on the ABC education website. We have embedded a video from the series for the test takers to understand the format.

She sets up two or three learning pointers to improve for a section in each video then plays real-world conversations among native English speakers. Later analyzes how, when the speaker used each learning pointer and at the end assigns an activity to listeners.

Notes and activities for the video are available on the corresponding page on the ABC education website.
