Are you still trying to get a band 7 or more in IELTS?

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

Hi, I’m Ray and I run a small English school in Kyushu, Japan (London Language Lounge). I have been teaching IELTS here since 2009. I founded IELTS Focus in 2016 to help my students hit their target score in the IELTS exam.

This website contains free materials, tips, strategies and free lessons to help you on your IELTS journey. I also have an online writing correction service and one to one 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 get a Band 7 or more.

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

Is writing stopping you from hitting your target score?
