Ryoki took the exam two years ago, got amazing scores, and then moved to Melbourne to study and teach.

Click here to learn how he got that overall 8 the first time he took the exam.

Recently, Ryoki entered the 3 Keys program again because he found out he needed to undergo IELTS a second time.

The reason he chose to go through the course a second time was to maintain his motivation, review, and enroll in the Personal Coach package.

This time, Ryoki received 8.5 for Listening, 7.5 for Reading, 7 for Writing, and 9 for Speaking!

IELTS 7 Writing

  • Ryoki looked to quickly and misunderstood the question
  • Ryoki thought the question asked for causes and solutions, but actually it asked for consequences and solutions
  • The questions stated ‘What problems might this cause?’

As a final tip, Ryoki encourages you to develop a positive relationship with English, and make sure to take breaks.

Don’t push yourself too hard, or you’ll lose motivation and you won’t learn or practice effectively.
