Do you need to prepare for the IELTS Speaking and IELTS Writing tests?

Try setting up an IELTS mastermind group!

This will help you bring your IELTS skills to a whole new level and get the feedback you need.

We now offer IELTS Power Hour for members of our course, 3 Keys IELTS Success System.

Remember! A mastermind practice group is not a tutorial or a lecture!

You should have already prepared by learning strategies (preferably the same strategies as other people in the group).

You come into the group already knowing the strategies but being ready to practice them.

Participating in this kind of group can give you a huge boost in your IELTS motivation.

Today we’ll show you how to design your own group.

How to design your own IELTS mastermind group:

  • Choose people in your group carefully:  Get people in the group who are ahead of you in level and in understanding of the test. Send an invitation out on Facebook and say what your previous score was and what your target score is. If you get members of a higher level then you they will push you and motivate you to stretch your limits.
  • Know the strategies beforehand: This is not a lecture or a class. It’s a practice group. You learn your strategies, listen to lectures, and get to know what the examiner wants through video lessons before the practice group meets. Next, you come together with people in the group and you practice and put into play what you have learned. This is the best way to maximize your time and be smart about your preparation routine.
  • Have a good facilitator: Even though you are giving your peers feedback, you need someone who is facilitating the group who knows the scoring system and what the examiner is looking for. Be smart when you choose your IELTS professional. They can’t just be a native speaker. They must understand the scoring system very well. The facilitator will also make you feel comfortable and will create a positive atmosphere in the group so that everyone feels inspired and motivated.

Go and set up your own IELTS mastermind practice group now!

If you can’t set up your own then you can join our course and you will be invited to join one of our 3 Keys IELTS Power Hours every month.
