School’s Out: IELTS and OET Teaching Stories From July 2020

Jul 31, 2020 | IELTS, IELTS News, IELTS Test, IELTS Vocabulary, OET

How has July been for you? Did you get any closer to achieving your goals? 

Our goal is to help our students get the IELTS score they need – and we are glad to say that we are succeeding.

IELTS Newsletter: What We've Done

Where We’ve Been

Much of the world is still in some form of lockdown – but digitally we have travelled far and wide – you only need to see the list of where our students come from below.

This month we have taught students in gyms, Greek coffee shops and from the comfort of their own homes. One student moved from Spain to the UK – and had to self-isolate for two weeks – but their lessons continued.

Our students continue studying in lockdown, on holiday and as they move to new jobs.

We can teach you virtually anywhere – contact us if you need help.

New Lesson Packages

We are revamping and will soon relaunch our lesson packages. 

Our lessons are already very effective and have helped many of our clients to start a new life – but we have figured out a way to do it even better.

We already do things differently – and we can’t wait to show you what we are planning.

We are also launching quarterly language audits so that our former students can stay on top of their success and ensure that their English doesn’t deteriorate but keeps moving forward.

Language audits will be for former students only.


Our July newsletter announced the success of one of our students who gained an overall 8.5!

Much of our newsletter focussed on changes to the UK visa regime, which for most of you will be beneficial.

From 2021, the UK will move to a points-based immigration system, and IELTS will help you to get 50 of the 70 points you need when combined with a job offer.

If you would to know more about these changes – sign up to receive our monthly newsletter.

Website News

As you will see on our blog, our website continues to grow each month.

This month we have added two further sets of model answers to our Speaking Vocabulary series.

The first article was about travel. This is a regular topic in both the Speaking and Writing sections of the exam.

The second article was about the media. This topic comes us regularly in various forms. For example, you may be asked to talk about your favourite news source or website. 

Finally, we added another edition to our Spotlight Vocabulary series – which links you to a series of curated articles containing high-level vocabulary and ideas you can use on test day.

IELTS Newsletter: Why We Teach

Student Spotlight

We were delighted to receive the following testimonial from Yuni, who scored an overall 8.5…

Got 8 for both speaking and writing on my first try!

Andy is an amazing teacher! Andy was always prepared, professional, and encouraging. He picked up a lot of grammatical mistakes I routinely made, and I was able to reduce such mistakes at the exam. He also gave me a lot of great advice on how to prepare for the exam and for the actual exam day. I was not expecting to get the score I wanted on my first try, so I couldn’t be happier. Thank you, Andy!

Is Yuni’s dream your dream? Would you like to achieve her level of success in 2020? We can help!

IELTS Newsletter: When We Teach

When Can You Book An IELTS Lesson?

Our lessons are currently taking place between 9.00 am and 6.30 pm London time. 

Using our online booking system, you can choose a time for our lessons that suits your busy schedule. 

Please contact us early – don’t leave it too late. It takes time to master new skills. If you don’t leave enough time to learn – your score might even fall.

We are also in high demand – and our schedule can sometimes be filled weeks in advance. 

If you would like to meet to discuss how we can help, contact us via our contact form or through our free demo lesson page.

That’s all for July!
