Are you still trying to get Band 7+ in the IELTS exam?

 

IELTSI can help you achieve the IELTS score you need.

Hi, I’m Ray and I own an English school in Japan (London Language Lounge). I have been teaching IELTS for 8 years. I founded IELTS Focus to help my students get a high band score in the IELTS exam. This website contains free blog articles, tips, strategies and free lessons to help you on your IELTS journey. This site covers each part of the IELTS test, Reading, Listening , Speaking , Writing task 1 and Writing task 2 essays.

I will show you the correct techniques, especially with writing, to help you hit your target score. There is a lot of bad advice out there regarding IELTS, on top of that, many students think they can just jump to a Band 7 without much effort, in fact it takes a lot of preparation to understand the techniques to get a high score. Take a look at the blog posts section below.
