When Life Education was set up in 2001, we were looking to provide comprehensive, personalized IELTS and TOEFL training; such classes were practically non-existent in Kerala then and our approach has garnered us a lot of praise and recognition, not to mention the fact that most of our 4,000-plus students come to us by word-of-mouth referrals from alumni. We are proud to have helped turn around so many lives and we are also gratified that we are an authorised registration centre in south India for exams conducted by both the British Council as well as IDP Education, Australia. Our exemplary service in IELTS training has fetched us the Gold Membership in the British Council IELTS Partnership Programme and the Business Excellence Award from IDP Education India Pvt Ltd.
Our training sessions are customized to suit individual needs and even, temperaments. A 50-year-old may not have the same aptitude or may not want to follow the same learning curve as a 17-year-old. Our teachers, who are highly specialized in the teaching of English to adults, take all these factors into account when customizing the IELTS training course for every student. This, of course, explains why we have so many students clearing their IELTS & TOEFL exams with great scores, and why they keep sending new students our way. Speaking of students, ours come from all over our beautiful country, even from some far-flung corners. Yes, they come all the way to Cochin just for IELTS training at Life Education! Each of our students has a story, and we find it especially rewarding to add a special touch to their stories.

What sets us apart from the scores of IELTS training institutes is our commitment to learning. Our teachers are constantly updating their skills in the area of IELTS training and teaching of the English language. Our trainers have all cleared the IELTS exam; some of us, multiple times, with near-perfect scores! In fact, we are one of a handful of institutes with faculty who have CELTA qualification (Certificate in Teaching English to Adults) from the University of Cambridge’s Cambridge English Language Assessment centre.
