IELTS & TOEFL Weekly: Special Language Help Service Session


In 2020 Fall semester, CLE launched the new IELTS & TOEFL Weekly program to help students who are in need of IELTS of TOEFL practice. The first session of the “IELTS & TOEFL Weekly” was held on September 14th. Around 26 students participated and gave positive feedback.

As part of the Language Help Service (LHS), the CLE is providing students with more than 20 hours of free tutorials of IELTS and TOEFL practices. This new program was designed and hosted by Stephen Pellerine, an experienced faculty in testing and assessment at CLE, with an aim to provide systematic and practical IELTS and TOEFL test preparation guidance to more SUSTech students.


Different from regular Language Help Service sessions, students can feel free to drop in every Monday from 10:30 to 12:00 (TB1 409) for information, tips, practice, and mock tests. There is no need to reserve a time slot, but sessions will start at 10:30 then progress until 12:00.

Throughout the whole semester, specific topics such as general tips, building vocabulary, writing skills, secrets for high scores and mock tests in listening, reading, writing, and speaking will be addressed each week. Students can drop in for one of these sessions according to their needs, or attend all of them. The delivery of each session may be influenced by student numbers, but efforts will be made when possible to help students with specific needs and challenges.

With the efforts and creativity of all CLE members, Language Help Service will continue to provide effective and individualized language support to the whole SUSTech community.
