Intensive IELTS Preparation Course

IELTS male students  This is a photo with me and my male students on the last day of our IELTS preparation course.  IELTS stands for “International English Language Testing System” and is used internationally to check students’ English levels for the sake of education and employment.  If you are interested, you can check up on it at www.ielts.orgIELTS students closeup     I must say that this had to be one of the most enjoyable classes I have ever taught here in Oman.  The students were fascinating, motivated to learn and brilliant.  Our classes were in the evenings from 5:30 to 8:30pm as most of the students work in various fields during the day.  The older gentleman in the back left corner of the photo, Nasser, drove more than an hour back and forth each day all the way from the village of Izki!!!Andy and Mohammed Sulaiman  Me and my student, Mohammed Sulaiman, who was a barrel of laughs!

To any teachers out there that are offered a chance to teach an IELTS preparation course, I’d recommend for you to jump at the chance as it was an extremely rewarding experience for me. (Although there was a LOT of preparation and marking involved…)

  2. Manickam,
    I wish I could help you out but I don’t know a thing about the procedure for getting a work permit for Australia. Try asking on the forum at There are expats from around the globe to check that site on a daily basis and I’m sure some kind soul would be able to help you out.
    I hope it works out well for you! 🙂

  3. hi,
    am a bachelor student my IELTS exam will be in 16\Sep
    I have to get not less than 6.5 .
    can u lead me to a teacher of IELTS that could come to my house (Muscat) an teach me ?
    I prefer a Female teacher if possible
    by the way my last score was 6.0

  4. Hi, Iman!
    I wish I could help you out but I don’t know of any female teachers of IELTS that I could recommend. You might want to check with the British Council and see if they have private tutors available. You could also buy one of the more recent IELTS exams book that are out on the market to review and study before your exam on September 16th. I wish I could be of more help. Take care! I hope you get 6.5 or higher! 🙂

  7. Dear Arul,
    I have absolutely no idea about how one goes about getting a work permit for Britain. I think you should contact the British Embassy and ask them for advice. All the best! 🙂

  9. Amir,
    I’m afraid I don’t offer any courses in IELTS. Your best bet is to check with the British Council or Hawthorne who offer help/courses in IELTS.

    • Dear Andy,

      Can you please advise me to have IELT class other than British Council, probable it may be you. I have already scored 6.5 band, but I need to have all band 7.
      I am in Muscat at present.

      Thank you


      • Nithshana,
        As far as know there are IELTs classes at the British Council, Hawthorne and Sultan Qaboos University. Those are your options. Anyone know of any others?

  10. Hi Mr.Andy
    but i didnt ask you about ielts!! what im really needed is privte course for the speaking and listening not for academic purposes ,
    I want to talk english fluently so do you have any native english friend here in muscat give that kind of courses??

  11. Amir,
    I’m sorry but I don’t offer private courses. I am plenty busy with a fulltime job and a 7 month baby boy! 🙂 I’m sure there are plenty of English native speakers around Muscat that would be more than willing to help you out. All the best with your English studies!

  12. Hi Andy,
    I am about to take IELTS(General) exam before this year ends. But its my first time and I have no idea and haven’t scale my self if I could make it or not. I want to attend review classes first. Do you know some schools here in Oman who offer training courses for IELTS? Any recommendations? Thanks…

  13. Raque,
    As far as I know, the British Council is the place to go for IELTS training/reviewing/tesing. Give them a call and I’m sure they can give you the info you need! Contact info for British Council: Telephone +968 24 681 000 Fax +968 24 681 090 E-mail All the best to you! 🙂

I have a plan to apply for permanent residence ship in Canada after reaching Oman. For the eligibility i need to score at least 7.5 band in the listening and 6.5 bands for all the other three sections. I have read all your answers for the inquiries in different matters. Each and everyone was honest and sincere. So I would like to learn English from you if you are still taking I.E.L.T.S classes and your center is in Muscat or Salalah. “” is my e-mail id.So please send me your address and phone numbers to my e-mail id, because i coincidentally get into your site.
