IELTS Preparation: Get the band score you need in just one month


Can’t find a good place to study for IELTS? Struggling to fit IELTS prep into your schedule? Dr Ammar Hadi Kadhim, a neurosurgeon living in Iraq, offers a solution. He achieved the band score he needed with just one month’s practice using Road to IELTS. Here’s his story…

‘Would you believe me if I told you that I passed the IELTS test successfully from the first trial with no IELTS experience ever before EXCEPT with the Road to IELTS which I subscribed to just 2 months before the exam date? I only had 2 months because I am a very busy neurosurgeon. Otherwise, one month of concentrated Road to IELTS practice could be sufficient.

‘I was confused at first. What should I read? How should I practise and train myself to get the required score? I am in Iraq and, actually, there are no courses or institutions that are easily accessible for IELTS training. I said to myself, who is the best to train me other than IELTS people themselves — the British Council! Road to IELTS is just what I should spend my limited training time with, and that was my wise decision.

‘Road to IELTS is very well-structured and with its progressive challenging levels ensures a solid base to answer the most difficult questions. It helped me be oriented on the day of test, know what the tricks will be and how to deal with them.

‘Reading and Listening modules training is fantastic and so efficient.

‘Writing and Speaking modules training helps a lot in understanding the key to pass these tests successfully — great deal of tips, and challenging tests.

‘My scores are:
Listening: 8.5, Reading: 8.5, Writing: 7.0, Speaking: 7.0, Overall: 8.0
Primary language: Arabic
Test Date: Jan 10, 2015

‘Thank you for Road to IELTS.’

    Sample Essay

    Undeniably, pollution is a grave concern. As far as the question of taxing the industries is concerned, it can be one of the ways to tame this monster. Let us dig deeper to explore the ways to alleviate this global problem.

    To begin, taxing the industries can definitely help to a certain extent. Firstly, it will generate necessary funds to upgrade the existing infrastructure. Secondly, these funds can be invested to facilitate research to find advanced ways of pollution-control. Various educational and research institutions can be roped-in to come-up with more effective ways. Thirdly, it is a very fair policy. Industries which cause a lot of pollution, must also shoulder the responsibility to control it in some way.

    However, there can be other ways also. Government can stipulate strict roles, for industries to invest in waste-treatment. Such a policy will promote prevention, and thus can be a more effective way to deal with the issue. To quote an example, lots of chemical factories dispose their wastes directly into water bodies – rivers, ponds etc. If these effluents are treated before disposing, it will prevent pollution on the first place. As it is commonly quipped – ‘prevention is better than cure’ – this can be a more effective way.

    Further, norms can be laid for setting up industries in areas of less population. Outskirts of the city are more suitable for setting up refineries, and factories. If land is allocated on cheaper rates in the outskirts, it will incentivize industrialists to set-shop there, rather than in the heart of the city.

    In essence, it takes more than simply taxing the industries to control industrial-pollution.
