IELTS first attempt score
Scored 7+ on IELTS
I am half-Russian, half-Ukrainian and had become fluent in English without going abroad before I decided to apply for the best Master in Management programme in Europe that is CEMS in St. Gallen University in Switzerland. One of the requirements was Academic IELTS, so I managed to prepare very fast with my own strategies in under 3.5 weeks and get 8.0 band score on my first attempt. My precise result was Reading 9.0, Listening 9.0, Writing 7.0, Speaking 7.5. While I lacked only 0.5 in Speaking to get the overall 8.5, I decided (quite randomly) to share my experience on YouTube: books, strategies, materials that I used.
To help as many people as possible worldwide to pass IELTS with 7+ and pursue their dreams abroad.
To provide high-quality educational content with my personal tips and strategies on how I became fluent in English.
Everyone has a right of accessible education regardless of their background, gender, age, financial abilities or nation.
I can't thank you enough for your generosity in sharing those books and resources for IELTS, and of course your videos on your YouTube channel. Because of that, I got a higher band score than I needed... on the first attempt. I'm your number 1 fan, and one of those followers whose lives have been changed because of you!
English has been such a problem for me for a while! I almost gave up on my dream to get admitted to a university abroad. Luckily, I stumbled upon Darian's channel on YouTube and contacted her directly. She helped me to brush up on my lanuage skills (we had a month of lessons) and to get my CV and motivation letter ready. Aaaand a week ago I received the letter of admission to the University of Lisbon!
Thank you for helping with my English! I took the Rocket Speed IELTS Preparation course to get IELTS, which was necessary for my UK visa. I successfully got 7.5 overall and now ready to qualify as a nurse in Britain! By the way, I used many free WSE materials as well - they are priceless! Everyone truly has a chance to change their life.
