What are lessons like at ispeakezy?

ispeakezy devises syllabi to those who want to take on a new and exciting challenge in their personal and professional life. We know how important it is for you to meet your objectives when you decide to take up a course in English, so our study programmes are designed by taking account of your needs and interests. If you're ready to embark on a new learning journey with us, we'll be thrilled to bits to turn your goals into reality.   


The structure of the course

In your classes we may follow a course book to give you a basic structure to the course, but we will use a lot of other materials and give you worksheets.  So you will need to create a file to organise your work and notes.


In your lessons we will practise the 4 skills of:

  • speaking

  • writing

  • reading

  • listening


You will learn a lot of new vocabulary and expressions that you need to write down and to practise regularly. In class you will be learning new things about English and/or Spanish and there will be a constant review so as to consolidate everything discussed in our course and in previous ones. You will have progress tests which will help to show you how your learning process is going.


Attendance and punctuality

Although everyone has commitments and occasional problems, good attendance means good punctuality too.  Everyone (including your teacher!) is expected to be on time for classes!



You should expect to be given some homework after most classes. You don't need to do it, but you will make much faster progress if you do.  If you don't do homework, you may find that some of the next lesson is wasted on you.

You should expect to get your homework back no more than a week after giving it to your teacher.

What's IELTS?

IELTS is an acronym, which stands for the International English Language Testing System. This examination is ideal for those who need to study and/or work abroad where English is the official language. Within the most popular countries where IELTS serves as a proof that you meet the English level standards we can mention the UK, the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.


IELTS score

As for its score, there is no such thing as a "passing mark". The aim of the exam is to assess the level of English of the examinee, who will be marked on a scale of 1-9. It is important to take into consideration that each university, workplace, institution will set their own IELTS score requirements. Therefore, this means the score will depend on where the examination must be presented. 

      IELTS score scale

9 - Expert user 

8 - Very good user 

7 - Good user 

6 - Competent user  

5 - Modest user 

4 - Limited user 

3 - Extremely limited user 

2 - Intermittent user 

1 - Non-user 

0 - Did not attempt the test

What does the IELTS score scale represent according to the Common European Framework of Reference?

CEFR levels                 IELTS score


C2                                 8.0 - 9.0

C1                                 6.5 - 7.5

B2                                  5.5 - 6.0

B1                                  4.0 - 5.0


What's TOEFL?

The Test of English as a Foreign Language, commonly known as TOEFL, is a standarised test, which measures your command of English and it is one of the mandatory requirements to get submitted at universities in countries such as the US, Canada, the UK, Australia, New Zealand and across Europe and Asia. Because of its academic setting, this exam is usually taken by those who need to demonstrate their linguistic competence in English for any academic purposes. 

TOEFL score

Like IELTS, having a determined English level is not needed, as TOEFL evaluates the test taker's English language skills. TOEFL uses a scale of 0-120 points to measure the examinee's performance on this exam. The mark needed will entirely depend on the insitution and/or university that you wish to apply to.     



TOEFL score according to the Common European Framework of Reference

CEFR levels                 TOEFL score


C1 or above                    95 - 120

B1                                  42 - 71


What's TOEIC?

The Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC) is an English-language proficiency test, which assesses the listening and reading skills of a candidate who needs to demonstrate their command of the language in a business setting. TOEIC is a standarised examination and its format has been divided into two sections: 

  • Listening 

  • Reading 

TOEIC score

Like IELTS and TOEFLTOEIC does not have a "passing mark". However, there is a maximum and minimum score and the scale used is from 0 to 990 points.

Spanish language certifications


What's DELE?

The DELE (Diplomas de Español como Lengua Extranjera) is an exam that certifies the degree of competence and mastery of the Spanish language. It can be taken by anyone who needs to demonstrate their knowledge and it covers all levels of the CEFR (Common European Framework Reference):

CEFR levels           DELE exams

It is highly recommended that you contact the institution where you want to present the result of your DELE exam for furhter information.
