What will you learn?
The Hague’s PREP course is not an exam preparation course. An exam such as Academic IELTS measures skills such as analysing, reasoning, criticising, evaluating, assessing and expressing opinion in English. It is self-evident that this requires a level of language far more advanced than every day conversational English. The key word in PREP is skills. Proficiency in English is such a skill.
