Reading: 209/210 Use of English: 210/210 Writing: 183/210 Listening: 210/210 Speaking: 210/210 So there was a little bit of a flop on the writing part but still, I managed to get the full score on almost all of the other tasks which, to be honest, is a very self-satisfactory feeling. The overall score was 204 and so I’ll be getting a C2 certificate, which is also amazing. So thanks for all the lessons, it was challenging but helpful AND enjoyable!
What I enjoyed the most having Kristof as english teacher is how he encouraged and lead us to develop listening and speaking skills. It is, in my view, the more natural way of learning a language, the way every children learn their native language, and I noticed how it helped me to improve my level.
I got my IELTS result couple of days ago. Despite my writing score was not good (not a surprise), the overall score was ok, actually I've talked to the universities I´m interested to, and this score is enough. Overall Band: 7.0 Listening: 7.0 Reading 7.5 Writing 5.5 Speaking 7.5 Thanks for your help in this process.
Kristof is a very passionate teacher that is always open to help students and tries his best by making strategies to make easier for the student. He shared with me a lot of tips and useful resources as web pages and written material that summarized the real important things to focus on. I highly recommend him, he is a very professional teacher, very well prepared that loves teaching and really knows how to do it.
Please accept my sincere appreciation for all the help. It’s the first time for me to get such professional assistance in my English learning, most time I just learn by myself. All the information you’ve mentioned is profound and targeted so I have no doubt that it’ll help me a lot as long as I follow it. Some changes in my study schedule has been taken according to these new materials. It’s really good to know what the exact problems are in my speaking and writing, so that I can focus on fixing them. What’s more, some of your points are so different from what I was taught in classes or textbooks, I think your opinions are more native, accurate and understandable. In the end, please allow me to thank you again for all your patience and kindness.
I highly recommend Kristof as a Teacher. He is really patience and he prepares the classes according to the students need. Kristof prepared different class activities to try to address them all. He was always on time, with all the necessary material ready to start the class. He provided to me different up-to-date web sites and reference material to check vocabulary & synonyms at home. He also gave me an excellent tip to improve our vocabulary range: In a notebook try to learn daily five new words and try to use them in your daily life, which really worked for me. I truly recommend Kristof as a teacher to you without reservation.
I got a really good general score at the ielts exam: 8.0 Reading: 9.0 Speaking: 8.0 Listening: 8.0 The exception was writing, i got an 6.5. Nevertheless, it allows me to apply for the phd. So thank you very much.
I have gained good feeling from all the parts of the exam. There were some unavoidable casual mistakes but no disaster happened. I just have to wait for the results. Thank you for all the nice lessons, it helped me a lot and you were a very good teacher - your approach was both highly beneficent and friendly, that wasn't like that with most of my previous English teachers. I have trust that all of us will pass.
I did well and I got an overall of 7.5, which is more than what I needed. Listening: 7.0 Reading: 8.5 Writing: 7.5 speaking: 7.0 Even though I "succeeded" I think it´s a shame I got 7.0 in listening and speaking. Well, I just wanted to say thanks again because the course was great and it really helped in my case.
Thank you for the correction too! I had speaking yesterday and all the other parts today. it was very good! writing was the easiest:) I was actually very surprised how fine it was. reading and Use of English were good too. listening was very easy except for the last part-that was kinda tricky. and speaking was the worst. Ii was really nervous and I got some weird questions so it was kinda hard to answer. but anyway, I overall feel good and i think that i'm gonna pass. You can encourage your students to go for the exam!:D thank you again
I got my IELTS academic grades with a 7 AVG (Listening 6.5 - Reading 8 - Speaking 6.5 - Writing 6). I have been accepted by a Canadian College. I wanted to thank you a lot for your help, it meant a lot!
