Fed up of feeling confused about the best way to prepare for writing task 1? 

We understand your pain.

Let me reassure you…many students are in exactly the same position. Constantly let down by poor or expensive IELTS material on the internet. It’s all around us – fake Facebook and Instagram accounts, spam emails full of false promises. Annoying right?

Yep, we see it all the time.

But here’s the problem… sometimes it’s hard to spot the good eggs from the bad ones (especially if English is not your first language). Don’t get me wrong, there are some great IELTS resources out there, but many of them charge an arm and a leg and are just too expensive for many people. Or they require you to follow a set lesson schedule which is completely inconvenient.¬†

Let me ask you this…

Do you want to fail the IELTS over and over again because you have been given the wrong advice? Can you afford to spend $1000s on lengthy courses? Do you want to take time off work or away from your family to have lessons at inconvenient times?

If you answered ‘Yes’ to any of these questions, then I’m afraid our eBooks simply aren’t for you. That’s not what we do and you may be best looking elsewhere for your IELTS help.

But if you believe you deserve better (we think you do), then read on…

What makes us different?

We work with a team of highly experienced native English teachers, IELTS tutors and examiners to bring you the most comprehensive IELTS eBooks which are brand new for 2020. All the content is based around you scoring a minimum of band 7 overall.

Our eBooks are available instantly, at the click of a button and can be easily downloaded onto any digital device, meaning you can study offline at any time, any place, 24/7. This gives you full control and the flexibility to study around your own personal life.

We understand how you feel. Most students who take the IELTS have something they want to achieve in their life – a particular dream. This often includes things like moving abroad to live an amazing life in a new country, becoming a ‘Grade A’ student at a prestigious university or improving your career prospects to become richer and happier. The road to achieving these goals is filled with fear, frustration, doubt and uncertainty. How do we know? Because we have been in the same position as you. We moved from the UK to Australia in 2018 to fulfil our lifelong dream of living in this beautiful country, walking along the beach every day and being more relaxed, happier and healthier.

Most IELTS tutors have never been in your position, they don’t know how it REALLY feels to be in your shoes and all the emotions involved. However, we do know how you feel, and we think that is a real bonus. We will guide you, nurture you and hold your hand while you achieve your goals. After all, that is the reason we work with a team of IELTS teachers and examiners to bring you the most comprehensive eBooks so you can achieve your life dreams.
