STUDY IELTS IN THE PHILIPPINES: 8.0 OVER-ALL BAND IN 8 WEEKS, UEL LECTURER SHARES HOW

Pines International Academy (PIA) is one of the top English language schools in the Philippines that offers IELTS Training to diverse students. An exemplary testament to Pines' IELTS efficacy is Ms. Ho Thi Hong Minh. After completing the Pines IELTS Guarantee course, she achieved a remarkable overall band score of 8.0. Let's check out Ms. Minh's IELTS Training journey at Pines. Pines: How did you take the official IELTS test in Vietnam after studying English at Pines? Ms. Hong Minh: Hello PIA! After completing the IELTS Guarantee 6.0 course, I felt very confident and relaxed before the official IELTS exam. I was pleasantly surprised to receive the results, and achieving an overall band of 8.0 made me exceptionally happy. In retrospect, I took weekly IELTS mock tests at Pines. The lessons and Pines mock exams are aligned with the official IELTS test. Once again, I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the Pines IELTS team. The teachers helped me gain more confidence while rapidly developing my English skills. Pines: Are you satisfied with the results after studying English at Pines? What are your plans after taking the IELTS test? Ms. Hong Minh: Actually, I am fully satisfied with my official IELTS test results. I had hoped that after taking the IELTS Guarantee course, I would achieve a 6.0 band, but the results were genuinely surprising. Attaining an IELTS 8.0 (overall) opened new opportunities for my teaching career at the University. It has helped me exceed the standards of the university where I teach, allowing me to communicate in English with my students majoring in Economics. Simultaneously, I can update the content of research papers in English and contribute to our university. From another perspective, I can comfortably travel abroad, confidently chat with foreign friends, and continuously expand my network through my newly enhanced English skills. Pines: After joining the IELTS Guarantee course at Pines International Academy, what skills have you improved? Ms. Hong Minh: After completing the course, I have improved my English skills, especially my listening and reading skills. My listening score is 8.5, and my reading is 9. I am still overwhelmed that, in just 8 weeks, I could achieve desirable results through Pines' IELTS Guarantee Course.I have learned that proficiency in English fosters aninternational and diverse environment. It helped me gain new friends and learn about other Asian cultures. Thank you for having this special interview with us. PINES wishes you good health, happiness, and success in life.

A Journey to IELTS Success: Phong's Experience at Pines International Academy

Setting on a journey to improve one's English proficiency for the IELTS test is a significant step, and for Phong from Vietnam, Pines International Academy has become his chosen path in achieving his goal. In a recent interview, Phong shared his thoughts and experiences after three weeks of intensive study at the specialized IELTS campus.  The Learning Experience: Phong's excitement about studying at Pines International Academy is palpable. Having dedicated three weeks to a full-time English environment, he expressed his belief in the program's usefulness for IELTS preparation. The immersion in an English-speaking environment, coupled with excellent teachers and the opportunity to practice daily with foreign friends, has allowed him to focus entirely on improving his English skills.Favorite Aspect of Study:Phong discovered that his listening skills needed the most attention upon arrival. Consequently, the listening classes became his favorite aspect of studying at the IELTS campus. While strengthening this weak point, he also worked on honing other skills such as reading, writing, and speaking. The balanced approach to skill development resonates with his personal learning style, contributing to an overall positive experience.Challenges Faced:Every learning journey comes with its set of challenges, and for Phong, adapting to the food and the rigorous study schedule were the primary hurdles. Overcoming the initial discomfort with the food, he learned to eat just enough to sustain himself, ensuring that he always felt satisfied. The extended study hours, including late-night sessions, posed a different challenge, requiring him to maintain focus and dedication throughout the day.Learning Environment at IELTS Campus:Phong finds the learning environment at Pines International Academy to be highly suitable for his needs. He appreciates the weather, which closely resembles that of Da Lat in Vietnam, making him feel comfortable and at ease. The absence of rain and a moderate temperature of around 20 degrees further contribute to a conducive atmosphere for learning. The canteen food is deemed acceptable, and the facilities, including the rooms, meet his expectations. Teachers' Impact and his Progress: Phong holds a positive view of the majority of his teachers, emphasizing their good knowledge, experience, and professionalism. Overcoming an initial adjustment period, he found that consistent communication and feedback sessions with teachers allowed for mutual understanding and improvement. The learning materials provided by the teachers proved to be useful, facilitating a full-time study experience filled with enthusiasm.Phong's progress in his IELTS scores during his three weeks at Pines International Academy is truly commendable and emphasizes the effectiveness of the IELTS program. His initial scores were as follows: Listening: 3.5 Reading: 4.0 Writing: 4.5 Speaking: 5.0 Overall Score: 4.5   After focused and dedicated study under the guidance of the academy's teachers, Phong's scores witnessed significant improvement: Listening: 4.0 Reading: 5.5 Writing: 5.5 Speaking: 5.5 Overall Score: 5.0Phong's journey at Pines International Academy showcases the transformative power of focused language study. With a tailored learning environment, dedicated teachers, and a commitment to addressing personal challenges, he is well on his way to achieving success in the IELTS test. As he continues his studies, Phong's experience serves as inspiration for others aspiring to enhance their English proficiency and succeed in their academic pursuits.
