The main secret to your success at IELTS, TOEFL, SAT, Duolingo…

When you have this, everything else is just fun…

Hi everyone, in this brief article I would like to remind you (and also myself) about the essence of high band at all tests of English including TOEFL, IELTS, SAT, Duolingo, FCE – you name it. Probably it will sound a bit trivial, but in my view it is just paramount – so let’s formulate: 90% OF YOUR SUCCESS AT ANY ENGLISH TEST DEPENDS UPON YOUR LEVEL OF GENERAL ENGLISH!

So, sounds a bit uninteresting, right? But what if I tell you that within last 20 years of my tutoring practice I have been witnessing the powerful manifestation of this rule? For some unknown reason a lot of guys just ignore this phenomenon, and then they whine that something goes south at the test. Let us imagine: you have a very high level of English, and you are going to have your test in one month. What do you usually do in this case? Right, you work out some practical skills by virtue of passing practice tests on the Internet, or watch a lot of YouTube videos about the test – but anyway, you catch the feeling of calmness and warranty that all will be well.

Now let us view another example. You definitely lag behind with your English, and you have about three months before the test. what will you do? You will frantically try to catch up with the uncatchable – no matter with a tutor for Duolingo, IELTS, TOEFL, or by yourself – and the odds are you will end up getting a low score.

OK, you will say, everyone knows that – what does it make to me personally? I will tell you: if you know or even FEEL that you may sit an English Test in the future (even in two years) – immediately start improving your general English. Find a tutor or start practicing on your own thinking about the tutor – sooner or later you will need her/him. Do not squander your time if you feel you will have a test. Preparation to TOEFL, IELTS, Duolingo, SAT takes time – it is natural. Remember that you will not gain in one month what you should have acquired within a year.

OK, feel good! If you need assistance in IELTS, Duolingo, TOEFL preparation – please let me know! I will help…
