Today, find out how YOU can develop a study plan to get those high scores!

Back in August of last year, we recorded a podcast episode about the common habits of successful IELTS students who had taken our course and received their target scores.

Since then, we’ve had many more impressive success stories, and I’d like to share some of these with you so you can also get the high IELTS scores you need.

High-Scoring Habits

On that episode, we outlined the 7 habits that all students who score 7 and higher tend to have. The most important of these are:

  • Be realistic about the hard work it takes to increase your IELTS scores. You have to work hard, 5-6 days a week, and not waste your time on activities that don’t improve your testing knowledge and your overall English ability.
    • That’s why the students in our course succeed, because they follow the study plan and complete all the activities.
  • Read! You must embrace the Culture of Thinking that Lindsay and I talk about.
    • In order to have ideas to speak and write about, and to have something to say in conversations with native speakers, you should try and read a variety of materials, from newspapers to novels.
  • Watch! Students with a high level of English consistently say that they reached this level by watching TV and movies.
    • It’s totally normal and fine to not understand everything. The more you watch and listen, the more you will understand!
  • Learn what the examiner wants on the Speaking and Writing exams, and learn the strategies for the Listening and Reading portions of the IELTS exam.


IELTS Writing Success

Paulo took the exam 6 times before taking our course, and could not get the Writing score he needed. Then, after our course, he got a 7.5 in Writing.


Because he learned the most effective strategies for planning his essay and brainstorming his ideas in an organized, specific way.

Another student in our course got an 8.5 in Writing.


He followed our Study Plan, which provided him with the focus he needed to improve his overall English as well as his writing ability.

IELTS Speaking Success

One student, Mark, increased his Speaking score from a 6.5 to an 8.5.


He had a VIP session with me after completing the Speaking module, and I encouraged him to use his personality on exam day, reassuring him that this was the best way to get high scores in Pronunciation and Fluency.

And it worked!

IELTS Reading Success

Another student, Katerina, got an 8.5 in Reading after learning and practicing our 3 Keys strategies. And- she’s a new mom!


She followed the study plan in our course!

If you check out our student testimonial page,  you’ll see many scores of 7’s and 8’s.

All of these students took our course, yes, but they also put in a great deal of hard work.

You can do it too!
