Weiyan is a self-study student in China wanting to immigrate with her family to Canada or Australia, so she needs IELTS.
In part 1 of this interview we review her previous strategies for passing the exam, and what she changed to changed to jump a whole band. Yes, she went from 6.5 to 7.5, by getting feedback and using the online course! Not bad at all!
We also talk about the IELTS CASINO. What’s this?
The IELTS CASINO is expensive, stay away! More information about this in the audio tutorial
It’s phrase I have coined for students who repeatedly take the exam in a small time frame to try their luck at getting a better score.
Listen to this success story to discover:
– How she transformed her writing into EAP (English for Academic Purposes)
– A plan how to jump a whole band, and FAST!
– Why self-study can only get you so far….
In the second part of the interview, we focus on speaking techniques for Part 3. Although Weiyan jumped a band for the writing, her speaking score is stuck at 6.5. I tried my best to help her but she only had a few days left before the exam.
