Welcome to February’s edition of School’s Out, where we take time out of IELTS teaching to update you on the latest events…
Out and About
This month we visited Birmingham where we met with other IELTS experts to update our IELTS skills and keep abreast of the latest happenings in the IELTS world.
We have to say that we found the people of Birmingham very welcoming!
We had the pleasure of congratulating Abdul on his IELTS success. After 20 lessons with Marieta, he increased his score from a Band 6.0 to a Band 7.0…
This is Abdul Baset and today I would like to tell you more about my experience in IELTS preparations with Ms. Maritea. Basically, I took about 20 lessons with Ms. Marieta lalova because I had some problems with writing and reading. To be honest with you guys, it was not ordinary lessons, because my teacher made a team with me to overcome all my weakness areas such as grammar and of course structuring of my writing. And this is what made my lessons more efficient. So I highly recommend taking lessons with Marieta who helped me to score band 7 instead of 6 in my last exam. So good luck everyone and I wish all of you to score 7 bands and above.”
We wish Abdul every success with his future plans!
This month we started to post on our long-established Twitter account.
