They started studying and preparing 3 years ago.

Initially, he was finding resources online.

It was difficult to stay motivated!

There’s so much to study!

There are billions of IELTS and English language resources out there.

He soon found 3 Keys IELTS and the strategies helped him immensely.

How did he prepare for tough IELTS topics?

He had a speaking partner!

He practiced with his wife and they encouraged each other.

A support system can really help keep you motivated!

He found resources on YouTube and read TED talks.

These resources helped him constantly improve.

Why did Ricardo score 6 on Writing?

Unfortunately, he misunderstood the question!

He typed nearly the entire essay and then reread the question.

He then realized that he had misunderstood and his essay was off-topic.

Once he discovered this, he only had 15 minutes left to write his Task 2 essay.

He was rushed and had no time to check his essay.

Considering this error, it is amazing he scored a 6!

He likely scored very highly on Task 1.

The 3 Keys strategies he had learned helped him write an essay in 15 minutes that scored a 6!

How does it feel to be done with IELTS?

It feels amazing to have achieved this goal.

He’s so happy he doesn’t have to take the exam again.

It was worth it to invest in himself.

He had to study very hard and spend a lot of time preparing.

He can now move on with his life!
