Yup, okay. Thanks for letting me know beer:

I guess the links are okay. Are you sure you have deleted the symbol '*' on the address?? D

yes I have and all of the links mentioned the same issues and it's not the matter of "*" symbol, for example,

i don't know whether or not the passed the test since i resigned before the class finished--my contract ended before i finished that class n i wasn't going to renew, so i resigned.. hehe..
my colleague replaced me then..

well, u just have to practice a lot so u'll be familiar w/ it..

some people told me that speaking section in ielts is easier (than ibt) since it's more human.. we don't talk to computer in ielts, so we still could get the responses from the interviewer..n in some way, responses help a lot..

for writing, please practice a lot..if i'm not mistaken, u have to write 2 topics..one is table, diagram, bars, etc..the other will be about opinion or so..u could learn from the book so u could use the terms appropriately..

emm, give me space recalling another tips..it's been quite long time..


Are u going to take either ielts or ibt?

well, I have taken them both D
However, IMO, iBT is much more challenging than IELTS. (moreover the price is cheaper). I prefer have the MCQ format to essay one for my handwriting is not so tidy and sometimes hard to be read by others (except my parents) ngakak

Loggingin, please let us know whether your student had taken a pre-test before he studied with you at that time. Currently, I am working as an IELTS/TOEFL Private tutor. AFAIK, in this business, we are heading direct competition with International Institution such as IALF, EF, Wallstreet.

It is a common procedure for IELTS Prep Candidate to undergo a pre-test so that the institution know candidate's ability which is reflected as Candidate Entry Level.

It means they only guarantee 0.5 point of improvement after studying 50hours or so.

It's neither a burden nor a mess, the most important thing is that now you have had the experience of teaching IELTS. Congratulations. You should learn the IBT and give a try teaching it for another fellow. I believe that when we are teaching someone else, we are learning at the same time.

Thanks for sharing. Comment anyone?

omg, i'm so sorry bro rahan..i missed ur comment.. :sorry

yes, i remember giving them pre-test before the course..n the scores were pitiful..they had no idea what ielts was n they thought it was similar to toefl. so they were surprised when they had to fill in the blanks with words and had to have the speaking and writing test..

i can't agree more with ur comment. i learnt many new things while i was teaching. sadly, i'm not teaching anymore since i found another job which is totally in different field..
i eager to learn ibt, but i guess i'm too busy this time..

Wow this info extremely useful..
I am preparing IELTS right now because in half a year again I will go to Australia.

i have a question
what is the difference between toefl and ielts (or maybe some similar test)?
i am not asking about test format, scoring method, etc
i mean, why take toefl and not ielts? (vice versa)
is there any institution that accept one of them but reject the other one?

as for me i prefer toefl, reason:
1. cheaper ($165 compared to ielts $190)
2. easier (i think), since my first toefl score is 510 while my first ielts score is 4, and many university want toefl 550 and ielts 6

in my imagination, hehehe, some UNIVERSITY or OFFICE or taking DOCTORAL PROGRAM in UGM may require TOEFL. IBT for International. ITP for Domestic Purpose.

IELTS is for ADS (postgrad scholarships application) or if you want to study in Australia.

AMINEF or FULBRIGHT or other AMERICAN UNIVERSITY Scholarship usually requires TOEFL IBT and GRE..

They are easy if you're well-prepared. They are difficult if you're not well prepared...

bro Klanese ,,, your welcome .. I wanna share somethin here .. in my opinion (based on my general observation), some people attempt to take IELTS or TOEFL without having some preparation first. They didn't get the score that they need. Later on, they tried to take a prep program, and said, "But, I must get my score two months from now the latest, because in month bla bla bla is the deadline for my bla bla bla ..."

Has this phenomenon been discussed before in this thread?

As a tutor, I perceived there are two kinds of knowledge (competence), GENERAL ENGLISH knowledge, and TEST BASED knowledge...
though one is good at GE knowledge, it doesn't automatically ensure he/she will get an excellent TOEFL/IELTS/GRE/GMAT score(s) ...

In my opinion, people should know that these kind of test(s) take time ... Teacher in my opinion is not a magician that can pull trick easily ...
Most of my prospective students (without realising) equals teacher and magician .. D

your observation please .. thank you very much ..

Nice share bro rahan. I do agree to certain points that if someone wants to achieve a high score on the international English tests, the preparation won't be such a magical thing that can be simply done within few hours D
