IELTS is a test which measures the ability to communicate in English for people who intend to study or work where English is the language of communication. IELTS Academic format best suits the needs of students in the triennio, being also a requirement of entry for universities in Italy, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, USA and Canada.
The course lasts 40 hours, from October to February 2015.
The two-hour lessons will be held once or twice a week from 2.30 pm to 4.30 pm on Monday and/or Thursday.
Students have to attend the lessons regularly. Taking the course also requires regular study at home, more intensive immediately before the final test. A credito formativo is granted to all the students in the triennio who attend the course regularly.

The cost for the IELTS course amounts to about € 250 (for 15 participants).
The enrolment must be paid before starting the course through “bollettino postale” in favour of Liceo Virgilio.
