Are you struggling to get a high score in IELTS?

Take a look through the website for free tips, advice, and lessons for the IELTS exam.

Hi, I’m Ray and I own an English school in Japan (London Language Lounge). I have been teaching IELTS since 2009. 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, particularly writing task 1, writing task 2, and the speaking section of the exam. I also have a writing correction service and IELTS speaking sessions online.

There is so much bad advice online regarding IELTS and many students are completely misinformed or simply confused. The aim of this website is to clear up confusion and show you clearly what you need to do to hit Band 7 or more.

Take a look at the testimonials page to see what my students have said.
