Today you’ll learn the benefits and drawbacks to online IELTS courses, so you can choose your best way to prepare.

We had an email from a listener:

I’m interested to join your online IELTS coaching course, 3 Keys IELTS. I’m quite confident in my Listening and Speaking skills. I scored 7.5  for Listening and 7 for Speaking. But, my Reading and Writing abilities are poor, as I scored 5.5 and 6.

My confusion is how can you help me to tackle this situation if I take a course online?

Receptive skills of Reading and Listening make more sense to do online, as you can access the practice and lectures easily and comfortably in that format.

However, with the productive skills of Speaking and Writing, students want a person in front of them.

The most massive benefit of getting into any online course, such as 3 Keys, is the flexibility.

When this is combined with the study plan, that tells you exactly what to do every day, this is the most efficient way to learn.

So, the autonomy you need as a busy adult is there, plus the guidance for how to use your time in the best way possible to raise your scores.

This helps you get past the anxiety of studying IELTS, because you know that every minute you are committing is worthwhile, and you can still enjoy dinner with your family.

When choosing an IELTS course in a language school, you are paying a significant amount of money more for that tuition.

Plus, these few hours spent at the school are not all filled with every activity that is connected to increasing your IELTS scores.

Furthermore, you are online anyway, throughout the day, so it makes sense to incorporate IELTS learning into your schedule.

Make sure, though, that you choose an online course with a supportive community, with access to a teacher.

Our closed Facebook group for 3 Keys gives you a 24/7 connection to Jessica for any and all IELTS questions and anxieties.

Then, with our Personal Coach plan, you have one-on-one Skype sessions with Jessica for personalized, pointed feedback on how to improve your performance and hit the scores you need.

These sessions are completely focused on you as an individual learner, as compared to language schools, where the teacher is grading 20+ essays at a time.

Also, you can watch any lecture more than once if needed, customizing your learning exactly how you need.
