Pawan’s Journey:

She only had to take IELTS once and she got an overall band 8 on her first attempt.

Before she enrolled in our course, she went to a language school.

She took classes for twenty days and she wasn’t improving so she stopped attending those classes.

She felt that she was good at Listening and Reading but she wasn’t getting any tips on Speaking and Writing for her IELTS Exam.

In January of 2019, Pawan joined our 3 Keys IELTS course.

She was skeptical about joining an online course and that’s why she hesitated for so long.

She also tried working with a private IELTS tutor but that wasn’t helping her.

She started listening to our IELTS Energy Podcast and learned a few things on the show.

She listened to us every day and now she also listens to All Ears English Podcast.

Pawan’s Scores:

Listening: 9

Reading: 9

Writing: 6.5

Speaking: 8

Overall: 8


How did she feel about her Speaking before 3 Keys IELTS? She fumbled a lot. She didn’t know how to use the cue cards and didn’t know how to structure her answers.

She jumped straight to the topic and didn’t have much to say so she wouldn’t be able to fill the time in IELTS Speaking Part 2.

When she got into 3 Keys IELTS she learned how to introduce her topic first, how to tell the story, and more.

Speaking is not easy and Speaking Part 2 is manufactured.

No one speaks this way in real life so you need special IELTS skills.

No one answers one question for a full two minutes in real life and that is why you need a foundation of strategies.

Besides the strategies, how did she improve her confidence?

She learned that she needed to use a lot of IELTS linking words and that helped immediately increase her score on test day.

IELTS linking words are super important to get a high fluency/coherence score and this will give you confidence.

When you have a map of linking words like you get in 3 Keys IELTS you don’t need to be nervous on test day.

These linking words will show the Examiner where you are going with your answer and they keep you on track so that you don’t get lost in your own answer.

She also made a vocabulary notebook and studied it once per week and that allowed her to provide the vocabulary that helped her score higher.


Take inspiration from Pawan’s story!

Join 3 Keys IELTS and follow the study plan.

It will help you when you get nervous on test day.

Even if you feel like you’re good at speaking English or if you feel like you’re not good at speaking English you need strategies for the exam.
