The first two courses (1a/1b  &  2) fit together, so that you can …

  • do one course (to focus on specific weaknesses), or …
  • do both courses (to be completely prepared for IELTS),

Remember, you can choose to …

  • do one Course in one term, then the other course in the following term (to spread the workload over two or three days/week), or …
  • do both courses in an the same term (5  classes/week for five weeks), if you want to achieve success in IELTS more quickly.

All the lessons are in fixed components, so that if you miss a class (due, for example, to sickness), you may be able to make up the lost class in another course. Remember, be quick, a deposit is necessary to secure a place.

Note 1: About ‘Make-up’ Classes 

各位同學好,老師和師母決定從民國106年10月30日起改變補課機制,因為太多同學們濫用補課機制,一大堆同學一天到晚請假(有些學生連續請好幾堂課),導致有時候一個班有15位同學 (有時再加上試聽同學教室就會變的很擁擠,因為我們原本滿班就有12位同學),大部分的補習班都不提供補課,Andrew老師以前在台北一家補習班當了6年的主管, 訓練了6~7個老師,那邊有上百位學生,他們也沒有所謂的補課機制,原本我們只是想幫助學生給學生方便,但是經常有同學們要求補課已經造成了我們很大的困擾 ~ 同學們一定可以體會補課學生對原班學生們造成的困擾,另外,老師和師母必須花不少時間幫同學們安排補課時間,同學們參加的是團班,而不是一對一課程,而且在你們加入前就已經知道課程規劃的時間,按照課程時間去上課也是對老師表示尊重的一種方式,AIS開班兩年多來同學們總是以私事優先的理由請假並要求補課,為了維護原班同學們的權益,加上為了同學們有最好的學習效果 (老師的課程是有順序規劃的),從2017年term8開始我們將取消免費補課機制,同學們要求補課一堂課需付費300元 (同學們到班補課時請給老師300元現金)。

 PS. 可以免費補課的特殊狀況例如 : 晚一到二堂課加入AIS任何課程,或加入課程前就預知有那些堂課無法按課程規劃時間上…等~請同學們於加入課程前事先和師母討論補課事宜,謝謝!


Note 2: Refund/Postponement Policy

1. 學在付訂金之前請考慮清楚是否確定要報名,因為訂金是不能退的,另外,如果同學要更改報名的課程時間只能更改一次,謝謝!

 2. AIS 因為是小班制,而且座位有限,每一期平日和假日班都有很多同學報不到位子,如果同學在開課前七天 (a week) 告知師母不參加報名的課程, 除了訂金之外我會全數退還,只要課程開課之後我們的退費規則就比照補習班的退費規則。



Warning: Be Careful About ‘Short’ Courses

At AIS, the ‘total’ preparation for all skills (Writing, Reading, Listening, and Speaking) consists of over 80 hours of direct teaching with the teacher, given in 25 individual lessons. In addition to this, there is homework in every lesson, consisting of Reading (of reading passages and tips from the book), IELTS Writing Assignments (9 pieces), and vocabulary exercises (from all the books), as well as independent research. AIS offers a full and comprehensive course.

There are many much shorter courses offered by other institutes and other teachers, but please note that very short IELTS Preparation courses …

(1) might seem cheap, but the course can be very costly per hour, and …

(2) these courses must necessarily provide limited preparation for the IELTS test.

Yes, short courses are easy to decide to do, quickly and easily completed, and seemingly cheap – but do they do the job? Do they prepare you with the full range of skills necessary in order to be fully prepared for the IELTS Test? The document shown at the top of this page shows the minimum amount of hours needed (80), based on my assessment and my experience of teaching IELTS Preparation [and that’s over 20 years of it!]. Each of the 25 lessons described is full of teaching, ideas, and practice, and the pace is fast, and delivered efficiently and effectively with very sophisticated PowerPoint programs. Any IELTS Course shorter than this would leave you NOT prepared to the degree that I, as the teacher, expect – and I cannot do that.

So, remember, when comparing IELTS courses among schools, …

(1) always calculate the cost per hour [not just the cost of the course], and …

(2) remember that short courses are short for a reason, and …

(3) keep in mind that the most important aspect is the TEACHER, and his/her qualifications and credentials. [Remember, be critical, skeptical, and demand proof].
