Lado’s IELTS journey

He has not taken the IELTS exam yet.

As he prepares to take IELTS for the first time, he is realizing how much work he needs to put in!

He had considered taking the exam without studying, and then realized it is necessary to study first.

Why did he choose 3 Keys IELTS?

He wanted to know what was happening in the IELTS podcast community.

He first was incredibly expressed with the All Ears English podcast.

The IELTS Energy podcast quickly became a must-listen as well.

He listened for nearly 6 months before deciding he needed the 3 Keys strategies.

Why is it important to prepare for IELTS?

If you take the exam without studying first, you can end up wasting two vital resources:

  • time
  • money

Without strategies, students end up studying on their own for years.

They can take the exam multiple times and not get the scores they need!

This can end up costing so much money, as it is expensive each time you sign up for the exam!

How did 3 Keys improve Lado’s writing?

Before signing up for 3 Keys, he did not know what the Examiner is looking for.

He was unfamiliar with the IELTS exam and what was specific to it.

He did, however, feel that he was a good writer.

Once he joined the 3 Keys system, he had access to all of our insider examiner advice.

He then knew what the Examiner is looking for and what he should focus on.

Skills you can’t find in textbooks

He discovered that our strategies can’t be found in textbooks.

If you already are at a high English level, this can be a disadvantage on test day.

You can go in with a sense of overconfidence.

This can lead to problems.

  • Reading the question too fast
  • Diving right into the answer
  • Not taking the time to fully understand the question

Our motto is “Simplify, Practice, Succeed.”

We break everything down into simple steps.

Tips to understand the Task 2 question

You must focus on the question.

Read it carefully a couple of times to make sure you understand.

As you brainstorm, look back at the question to make sure your reasons are supporting the topic.

While writing, check back at the prompt to make sure you’re staying on topic.

Immerse yourself in English

This takes a lot of effort!

You have to carve out time during your day.

While eating breakfast, listen to a podcast made for native speakers.

When you come across a new word, look it up in the dictionary.

The key is to use it that same day.

Writing process changes

After studying with 3 Keys IELTS, he realized the importance of checking his essays after writing them.

Lado has always struggled with spelling.

He has realized he needs to spend more time proofreading.

He has good ideas and high level vocabulary, but has difficulty checking.

While you’re writing, don’t worry about spelling.

Focus on getting ideas out and using transition phrases.

If you have spelling challenges, plan on closer to 8 minutes for proofreading.


Lado is able to visualize his future.

He plans to be a ski instructor in Canada.

Once he gets past IELTS, he can realize this dream!

You also can go from stuck to fearless to fluent!

Join 3 Keys IELTS for the strategies that will get you past IELTS!
