    This has been an awesome opportunity for me. It gives me so much more to offer my students, not just in IELTS but has given me so many ideas when making up my course material.The layout is so easy to follow and the course offers you an opportunity to see what the students should expect when going for their exam. You get PDF files to use when you teach and so much great advice on how to help your students get a good band score. Best of all is, you get lifetime access and on call support from eTEFL at any time that you need it. I recommend this course to anyone who wants to further their online teaching career.

  4. Fabio Slesio

    I’ve been teaching IELTS for three years now but I felt I had to know more. I though I had pretty good knowledge of the exam structure yet I’ve managed to learn new tricks and tips I really look forward to sharing with my students. Furthermore, I must say that the material looks great and very easy to use. Thank you! I think you guys have done a really great job 🙂

  5. Veronica Marks

    I was introduced to IELTS at the start of the year when one of my former students approached me for assistance. I accepted the challenge. I enjoyed the content and soon realized that a high standard is required. This course has added the necessary activities and guidelines with which one can equip an IELTS candidate. Yes, I most definitely am better equipped to assist future candidates.

    My student has passed her exam and can further her studies at a university in New Zealand.

  11. Myrna Akkers

    I was well pleased with how professionally the course was put together. One could tell that there was a lot of thought and experience that went into the material development and delivery. I enjoyed the course immensely and I am hoping that I am able to convey this information to my students in the same professional and passionate fashion.

  12. pborotho.vision23@gmail.com

    I am really happy that I took this course. It gives enough information without being too content-heavy and information about each test is organised in a user-friendly way.
    It would have taken me a lot more time to collate all of this information myself, and the bonus is that I have it available for whenever I need it, including updates (This is super awesome guys!)

    Just the time saving has definitely been worth it. I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to expand their teaching offering.
