Why Self-Evaluation?

Writing is such an important skill to develop, yet there are few writers in the world who write without also engaging in extensive revision and editing processes.

What is fluent? English for work

What if fluent? English for work

It is customary to see the words ‘fluent’ or ‘proficient’ next to language ability on a CV, but what does that term really mean? And does it qualify you for the job position? Better still, does it allow you to excel at your job, or earn a promotion? Even before you apply for the job, can you obtain a work visa in an English speaking country?

In Australia, a minimum of IELTS 7 is required for medical professionals. To enter into a UK university, a level of between IELTS 5 – 7 is required for courses taught in English.

Improve your IELTS score NOW!

If you are here, you are either already studying towards taking the IELTS exam and doing some research on how to improve your score or you want to get started in your preparation.

I have been teaching IELTS preparation for a long time and the exam has been revised many times since then – exam rules have changed, the intensity has gone up, teachers are better equipped to teach but students’ initial perceptions of this exam remain the same – “It’s an English test, how hard could it be”. This is what ultimately puts a block on what really needs to be done to get the band needed.

Here is the real truth about succeeding in the IELTS test: Read more
