About GEL technology

GEL IELTS preparation uses proprietary technology to deliver Smart modes, so that you study the right things and progress faster. We don’t just give you a list of practice materials to do. GEL Smart modes give you Guided mode, which uses analytics to give you the best possible practice and Mock mode to simulate test conditions. With GEL IELTS prep, you don’t just do work – you do the right work.

Answer Types

GEL IELTS uses Answer Type analysis, a proprietary GEL system which understands what each question is testing – for example, whether you can find details in a text. Answer Type analysis understands why you make mistakes, and knows how to teach you to avoid them. It uses a proprietary algorithm to give you the best mix of exercises to help you prepare.

Quality control

GEL is a well-established publishing company working full-time in the field of English as a Foreign Language – we are not just a couple of guys writing in our spare time. Materials management commissions professional EFL writers for specific needs. Their writing is then checked by managing editors and verified against our proprietary Answer Type Analysis before final copy editing and publication.
