Where We’ve Been

The UK has just experienced its warmest spring on record – and we’ve tried to enjoy it as much as we can. 


At work, we have spent some time attending webinars. 

In one, we asked searching questions about the security of the new online OET test.

Learn more about this test and how the new @home version will be accepted by the GMC next week.

Student Spotlight

Today we shine the light on Dorival from Brazil. Dorival had been struggling to get band 7.0 in Writing. He finally succeeded after finding a recommendation for us on social media and purchasing a 5-lesson package. 

Not only did he get his 7.0 in Writing – he also got a 9.0 in Listening and Reading.

Here is his success story…

Band 9.0 in Reading & Listening

When I found Andy’s website, I was struggling to get 7.0 in Writing and speaking on IELTS GT. I didn’t know what else should I do to achieve these marks. Then I bought 5 classes and with his pieces of advice I finally got the results that I need. I had already done the IELTS exams several times and I had never got such good results. Apart from the 7.0 achieved in Writing and speaking, I got 9.0 in listening and reading. 

Thank you very much Andy.
