Young Learners at IALF Bali - April 2015

IELTS

The Young Learners program at #‎IALFBali‬‬  is always interesting and fun for students. In one of Alice's class the students of SMP2 have been studying AND using reported speech.

Class Task: In this class General English students had to imagine that two of their peers had just split up. Their job was to be the ‘go-between’- the person who delivers messages between the two people reporting why he/she wants him/her back. After a quick review game for reported speech, students wrote a list of things their friend was saying about their ‘ex’. Once they completed their list they changed their sentences into reported speech form and created letters. Everyone really enjoyed the activity and came up with a lot of creative ideas.

Students were encouraged to use love pop songs as a source of inspiration.

Australia Awards awardees prepare for Australia

IELTS

Australia Awards awardees, all current students of IALF, gathered in both Jakarta and Denpasar during March 2015 for their Pre-Departure Briefings. They are due to leave for Australia in June to take up their studies under the Australia Awards scholarship scheme. These meetings in Jakarta and denpasar were conducted by the staff of the Australia Awards office in Jakarta, together with representatives from the Government of Indonesia and the Government of Australia.

On a less formal note, the awardees also gathered for their own social events in both locations. In Denpasar it was a beachside BBQ in Sanur and for Jakarta an event was held at a restaurant in Jl. Rasuna Said quite close to the IALF office. As you can see, all 4 events proved highly successful.

New Options for IELTS Preparation at IALF Jakarta

IELTS

his year IALF Jakarta merged the IELTS Prep 1 and 2 classes into one combined IELTS Prep program. This has been designed to develop stronger foundations for students by providing challenging test-taking strategies and engaging assignments.

IALF Jakarta’s 2-week intensive courses and 5-week semi-intensive course are now run over four days, from Tuesday to Friday each week. This allows for slightly longer class sessions which are better suited to IELTS practice exercises and also provides for a three-day break giving students time to consolidate what they have learned during the previous week.

In response to overwhelming demand, IALF Jakarta is now running IELTS Prep on Saturdays. The new 8-week course runs from 08.45 - 16.00, (with an hour's break for lunch), every Saturday for five weeks. The class is intensive and focused and gives students an opportunity to concentrate on their language studies without the stress of coping with the demands of work or school on that day, and of course allows them to avoid Jakarta's horrendous weekday traffic.

So far this year more than 1,100 students have registered for IELTS Preparation courses at IALF Jakarta. This number is expected to increase over the coming months as awareness grows about the new programs and as people find out how easy it now is to book a place for an IELTS test at any one of the IALF centres using the online registration and payment service.

‘My name is Muhamad Mustafa. I’m from Tangerang. I have to take the IELTS Test because I need to study in Australia. I did IELTS Test before in somewhere else last year and I did it again 3 months ago and then I can compare that having test in IALF Jakarta is good in term of facilities, in term of quietness, the place, the staff.... Everything is just make me feel comfortable which is very important for my IELTS.

I also enjoy IELTS Test in IALF Jakarta because the access also is very easy. I need to do all of these like in one day. So, here in IALF Jakarta I can get it because in other places I find they do the Speaking Test in different days than the other aspect of the test. So, I think ‘One Day Test’ is easy. Test itself is done in very quiet situation. Less noise here in IALF Jakarta. The IELTS preparation course is really help me in taking this test’.
