Here's a quick introduction to the online course

Hi there, I’m Matt

My goal is to help people prepare for IELTS in the fastest possible way.

Preparing for IELTS doesn’t have to take years. You shouldn’t have to go to a language college and sit with a group of students who are at different levels to yourself.

IELTS preparation can be faster and easier than you thought. Let me show you how.

There Had to Be a Better Way to Prepare for IELTS

I’ve been teaching English language courses for over fifteen years and over that time I’ve always felt that there was a problem with the old way of teaching, especially classroom language teaching.

The problem is that students in the classroom are rarely at the same level, which means they are not all understanding important lessons. Once the lesson is over, many students feel helpless because they have not learned what they needed. They simply have no effective way to replay the missed information.

Added to that is the cost of it all. The fact that students are literally spending thousands of dollars on education that is simply not effective is a big and expensive problem.

Here’s a new way to look at IELTS…

If you haven’t passed your IELTS test yet, the problem isn’t you – the problem is the method you are using to prepare.

That’s right. The good news is that you can access a better way. There’s now a way to prepare for IELTS in less than one month. In fact, there’s a way to prepare in just 21 days.

Will this course be for you?

It depends on you. If your English level is very low, this course will not be suitable for you. Or perhaps you feel you need to attend a regular classroom and sit with others to learn. If so, this online course is not for you.

However, this course is for you if:
  • You like the idea of learning when and where it suits you (including mobile phone, tablet or computer)
  • You have intermediate English language skills or above, or if English is your first language
  • You are frustrated by IELTS because you have taken the test multiple times without getting the score you need
  • You are just starting your IELTS preparation and know nothing about the test
  • You need to take the Academic or General IELTS, either the computer-delivered or paper-based IELTS

Forget Traditional Language Lessons

Studying online offers fantastic benefits, especially for language learners. Clearly, being able to replay lectures and take quizzes from the comfort of your own computer, tablet or phone is a massive benefit.

While some people prefer to watch YouTube videos and pick up pieces of information, the overall structure of their preparation may suffer. In other words, having the complete course in one box actually works out cheaper because it will save you time and money, especially when you don’t have take IELTS again and again.
