Hello from the Langports Gold Coast campus. As you may know, IELTS is an international test of English language proficiency for students who wish to work or study in an English speaking environment. Langports has recently launched its IELTS 1 course at the Gold Coast campus to prepare students for the IELTS exam. Andrea from Colombia was one of our first students to participate into this course and after 5 weeks of intensive training, Andrea obtained an IELTS score of 7.0!! Now, she studies a business course on the Gold Coast.
As part of this week’s blog, Andrea would like to tell you about her experience…
“Making the decision to leave your country your family and your job to explore another continent is not easy therefore it must be for a really good reason! My goal when I arrived to Australia was to be able to speak and understand English as well as enhance my professional profile. To achieve this goal, it was necessary to establish a study plan which would allow me to measure the knowledge acquired and, at the same time, it may open doors for post-graduate studies. That’s why I decided to take the IELTS exam.
Fortunately for me the Langports IELTS course was opened in May which canalized my energy into learning how to pass the international exam. This course had a dynamic and challenging environment. The teamwork between the teachers and students made me feel excited about studying again. The constant interest in learning and the perseverance of individual class members motivated me to push myself and try to be the best in class. Of course, at first it was not easy and I thought my brain could not process that much information in class, much less doing everyday tasks. The intensity of the course and the solid knowledge of the teachers made my writing and reading skills improve considerably. Today I can proudly say that I reached my goal! I got the required score on the exam to run for scholarships abroad and most importantly, I improved my skills in reading, writing and listening widely.
For those who require IELTS for professional and personal development this course is just ideal!”
