The March edition brings you up-to-date with the latest news from With an Expert – including the launch of our newsletter and hints at bigger things to come. 

IELTS Newsletter: What We've Done

The Coronavirus

As an online test preparation provider, March has continued as usual for us. We continue to help you prepare for the IELTS test and to get on with the rest of your life.

But many of our students – current and former- are medical professionals. For many of you, March has been a tough month indeed.

We appreciate all that you are doing. The coronavirus will pass soon – but the positive effects of your hard work will not. 

Thank you!

OET Training 

This month we’ve been talking with OET about some exciting projects we have planned for you.

In the meantime, we participated in a recent OET Teacher Support Webinar on the Writing component of the test.

No OET testing centre is currently open due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, but they are running many training events for students who want to take this opportunity to prepare. 

For more information – visit the OET website.


In March, we launched our newsletter. We were delighted when some of our old students got back in touch to tell us of their success.

Keep your eyes open for the next edition due out in April! 

We will be launching a new product for IELTS and offering former students the opportunity to continue studying with us.

Aptis Test

In March, we were contacted by a former student who was unable to find quality training for the Aptis test. 

We have put together a special package for him which follows the test format.

Aptis is an accurate and efficient assessment tool for all four English language skills. It can take place online in your office or home and is used by large companies around the world to assess their staff.

If you are interested in our training package – get in touch.

Website News 

We started the month with an update on IELTS and OET related news. The March edition focused mostly on the ongoing effect of COVID-19 on test centres worldwide. 

Also, we published two pages with model answers for the topics of Accommodation and Work in the IELTS Speaking test.

Also published, was the latest edition of our Spotlight Vocabulary series. This series introduces you to articles which contain high-level vocabulary and ideas you could use in the IELTS test.

When Can You Book An IELTS Lesson?

Our lessons are currently taking place from 8.30 am to 6.30 pm London time. 

You can book a lesson to suit your schedule using our online booking system.

We recommend booking early to avoid disappointment. Our schedules can sometimes be booked up for weeks in advance! It also takes time to master new skills.

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 March!
