OET Preparation

The Literacy Professionals at Languages International offer you two options for OET test preparation: the OET Intensive course in Auckland, New Zealand and OET Online Writing Feedback.

OET Intensive course in Auckland – 4 evenings a week:

  • A 3 week, 24 hour course usually taught on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings from 5.00 pm to 7.00 pm in Auckland city centre. Please note, however, that the course beginning 30th March will be held from 6 pm – 8 pm on the following dates:
    Week 1: Monday 30th March – Thursday 2nd April
    Week 2: Monday 6th April – Thursday 9th April
    Week 3: Tuesday 14th April – Friday 17th April
  • Weekly, timed, in-class tests with individualised feedback.
  • We still develop the key language skills needed to perform well in OET, and to focus on how to approach the OET sub-tests themselves.
  • OET Intensive is aimed at candidates who need to improve their performance in all 4 OET sub-tests.
  • The course costs $640 plus a $50 registration fee, payable on your first enrolment only.

The classes are also a great way to meet other people in Auckland who are preparing for OET – it is always better to prepare for a test with other people so that you can encourage each other and share resources and tips.

About the Occupational English Test

The Occupational English Test (OET) is an international English language test that assesses speaking, reading, listening and writing skills of healthcare professionals. The key benefit over IELTS is that it is contextualised around communication skills that are relevant to work in healthcare. So, test-takers are able to use skills that they have developed in the course of their work.

It is currently recognised by the following professional bodies: Nursing Council of New Zealand; Pharmacy Council of New Zealand; Physiotherapy Board of New Zealand; Veterinary Council of New Zealand; Dental Council of New Zealand; Council of Occupational Therapists Registration Boards (Australia and New Zealand); Australia and New Zealand Podiatry Accreditation Council (ANZPAC); Medical Council New Zealand (since Feb 2014)

Applications are centralised so you apply online.
