Keren decided to take 3 Keys IELTS to improve her scores, and, more specifically, to understand Writing Task 2.

In order to get 7.5 on Speaking, up from 6 and 6.5 before, Keren says that she used Cambly to talk to natives, and she also did volunteer work in Massachusetts in order to speaking more English.

If you don’t have the opportunity to talk to natives, you have to talk to yourself for at least 20 minutes a day.

As to Writing, Keren thinks that the Writing Task 1 vocabulary made most of the difference. Also, she read a lot of books.

Keren notes that she only had 20 minutes for Task 2 on exam day, because she spent too much time on Task 1. However, she still got a 7!

She also increased her Listening by half a band, and her Reading went from a 5.5 to a 6.5.

In order to raise her Reading score, she read novels, and practiced the 3 Keys strategies a lot.

Keren recommends The Map that Leads to You for a book to read. I recommend Dune!

Finally, she says that she is out of IELTS prison with her overall 7!
