Road to IELTS runs around five million sessions every year. Candidates work incredibly hard to achieve the band score they need in order to execute their plans for the future. I spoke to one candidate, Gabriela, about her experience of using Road to IELTS.
“My name is Gabriela. I’m from Romania and I live in London.
In 2021, my ambition was to attend university to learn about dentistry. After looking around for the right course and place for me, I found a course for Dental Hygiene and Therapy. Before I could attend, I needed to take the IELTS test and achieve a band 6 score in order to be accepted to the university. At this point, my English level was about an IELTS band 4 level.
I had never taken the IELTS test before and I wasn’t really sure how to prepare. I started by trying to learn English from YouTube. After a while, I decided it wasn’t really working for me and started to look for another option. I was introduced to Road to IELTS by a friend and started using it immediately.
I used Road to IELTS for 5 months (March to July) by myself. I never went to a teaching centre and went through the entire program at home.
I had no strategy when I began. All I knew was that I was struggling with the reading part so I started there. I just did repeated practice, again and again, making sure I went through all the questions. My first impression of the program was good; it helped me a lot, and the texts I was studying were very interesting and good information.
After 5 months of using Road to IELTS, I got a band 6 score in my test. It was enough to be accepted by the university. The English course really helped me a lot. The course was very good because I was working at the same time as studying and I could start and stop whenever I wanted.
I recommend Road IELTS for anyone who doesn’t have much time or wants to learn quickly. I did not have much time to prepare myself for the exam but I still managed to get my place at university by using Road to IELTS.”
Thank you to Gabriela for contributing to this post and sharing her experience.
