Sample Answer

Do you agree that it’s important for people of different ages to do leisure activities together?

Um … well … I think in some cases it could be important for people of different ages to do leisure activities together. For example, parents or even grandparents can enjoy doing fun things with their children or grandchildren, like, you know, things that don’t require a lot of physical ability such as playing games, reading or cooking. I guess that sometimes it is very important for older people to do things with younger ones, especially more difficult skills that need to be taught like … I don’t know … martial arts or playing a musical instrument.

I am really grateful for your amazing help, especially in the speaking test. My results were 7.5 in speaking and 6.5 in reading, writing and listening. Overall, band 7!!!

I was looking for an online training course. I read all the information that every site provided, and I chose this site. Many people told me that an online course wouldn’t be as effective as an English school in my city, but I bought the Excel course anywise.

I was amazed. I found out a lot of useful material. The training was outstanding and the feedback superb, nevertheless I had less than a month to recover my lost skills, and improve the weak ones. I presented the Academic IELTS on May, and I got the band score to perform a postgraduate course in one of the most important Medicine Schools of the United Kingdom.

I give thanks to Jenny and Nigel, who are highly-qualified and experienced English teachers, who really care about the progress of their students. Thanks a lot for your outstanding work!
