As the computer based IELTS test is available through Bay Learning Academy we have scheduled the courses so the exam is the Saturday following the end of the course, (with the exception of the April course)
The September course is three weeks, 3 evenings per week, to time it with the exam date.

Classes with Bay Learning Academy have been so worthwhile! has an amazing way of breaking things down so that they are understandable, and always keeping it light and fun.
Liz and Robbyn are great tutors and I would recommend them to not only students who are taking english classes for ielts exams but also for people like me who are learning on their own. They are very patient — which anyone that takes a language needs – and it’s very comfortable to practice conversations, which is also a huge plus. I recommend them highly.

I loved taking the 4-Week prep course for the ielts test.
It is a quick and objective course, where I can now identify which points I need to improve and what I will find when I take the test.
The teacher presented us with many examples and the classes were very dynamic.
