Today we address a student’s suffocating IELTS fear, and provide real actions to make that fear disappear.

A listener wrote to us about her extreme anxiety and difficulty in her IELTS preparation, and we asked her if she was now in an IELTS course.

Real IELTS Student Fears:

Yes, I’m in a preparation course now, but I feel disoriented at this stage. I find myself overloaded, trying to memorize many things with no effect.

For IELTS, there is so much to learn and practice, that it is extremely stressful, and nearly impossible, to do alone.

So, naturally, this student enrolled in an IELTS class. Most likely, too much material is being thrown at her. It also seems that neither the teacher or the student has an organized plan to follow.

We can help!

3 Actions to Prepare Without Fear

  • Evaluate your choice of course, textbook or tutor.
    • If you are feeling like you’re drowning, figure out why.
      • Is the course unorganized?
      • Are the strategies inefficient? For example, are there too many steps to find answers? Do they actually help you find the answers? Our course is called 3 Keys IELTS because all strategies are boiled down to the 3 most simple, efficient steps to help you find the answers quickly.
      • Don’t be afraid to bail out of your current preparation course if it’s not helping you. Cut your losses and find a way that makes you feel confident.

  • Constantly review in an organized way.
    • For instance, don’t just do a Listening Module, then move on and never practice the listening strategies again. Do a listening practice test at least once a week after you’ve learned the strategies.
    • Review your vocabulary notebook often.
    • Put review time in your IELTS study plan.
