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, was facing the same problem. In spite of that, he achieved the band score he needed using Road to IELTS. See how he did it in the limited time available to him and how you can do it in just one month. Here’s his story…
‘Would you believe me if I told you that I passed the IELTS test successfully with no IELTS experience ever before EXCEPT with Road to IELTS? I only had 2 months available 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 best to train me other than the 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. It’s progressive, challenging levels ensure a solid base to answer the most difficult questions. It helped me be oriented on the day of the test, know the test tricks and how to deal with them, and understand the task types.’
‘Reading and Listening training is fantastic and so efficient. The Writing and Speaking training helped a lot in understanding the key to pass these tests successfully — a great deal of tips, and challenging tests.
‘My final scores:
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.’
