Helped me get an IELTS 8! I used the course as my primary preparation material, and highly recommend it to those appearing for the IELTS exam. The content of the course may seem voluminous, however you have the freedom to skip and focus on sections you are weak at. The instructors have presented the content in a way that can be easily understood by a non-native speaker.

I am absolutely happy with the course! It is so thorough and detailed, focuses tips and tricks to elaborate your vocabulary in a short span of time, to help you talk more and worry less and plan your essay. Practically, I wasn't a star in writing essays under harsh deadlines, but the course prepared me to give it my all. The best review I can give is that this course has helped me to pass my IELTS test with 8 out of 9! After that, I actually got admitted into three UK universities! Now I am just waiting for the scholarship news, so fingers crossed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me to pursue my dreams!

Thanks for this course! I needed to practice my English to get a good score in the IELST. I took the course and followed all the steps and tips given by the teachers and I could get 7 points in my first try. So, I got the grade I needed for my master. Thank you very much!!

I can say, I have learned very good tips, tricks and a wide overview on IELTS exam. This course would be sufficient to get desired band in IELTS test. I have followed the course completely and ended up with an overall band score of 7.5(L-8.5, R-7.5, W-7, S-7). I would highly recommend this course for those IELTS takers who are looking for additional tutoring. Thank you IELTSx for making such a wonderful course.

There are no better websites or courses to train you for IELTS Test than this EdX Course. The content is simply awesome and the way they teach you is nothing short of brilliance. The tips and techniques especially for writing were very useful when I took up the test. All the modules are coherently taught with useful exercises. Thank you UQx and edX for this brilliant course. But please take 6+ practice tests before you take up your IELTS examination. I managed to score 7.5 with the help of this course !!!

Though I only attended in writing course, it helped me a lot in gaining the basic knowledge and then I could improve and study on my own without taking any other classes. I have also recommended this course to my friends and I'm sure that they will feel like I did. The hardest part here is that you all have to be hard-working and focus on studying.

I've just done this course and would never recommend anybody to pay for it according to the following reasons: - Nobody checks your work except for co-students, who give you unjustified grades in the writting part and never put down any comment why they marked your work like that. It extremely demotivates and discourages you, because you'd really tried to do your best. Obviously, it would be the same as if the students at University of Qeensland were graded at exams not by teachers but their classmates. Moreover, some students can't even read the task properly... So, if you have a look at the chat in this course you'll see loads of disapointed students, but the instructors say they can't control the peer's assessments... So...probably, it's not the best idea to creat something that you are not able to control. - Furthermore, the platform doesn't go well with tablets, some of tasks are impossible or uncomfortable to be done and yo...

So...probably, it's not the best idea to creat something that you are not able to control. - Furthermore, the platform doesn't go well with tablets, some of tasks are impossible or uncomfortable to be done and you'll have to use PC with a mouse. As for the way of telling information (not tasks), my point is that the teachers truly love their work. Actually, it's a rare case when professors convey information in a such gripping way. To sum up, the lectures are definitely useful and meaningful but some tasks and the way of the assessement in writting part leave much to be desired. In other words, not to be upset just listen to the course and never pay.

Thanks for the fantastic content alongside a top-class delivery. Although I was quite okay communicating in English, clearing a test such as the IELTS was a whole new ball-game. Among the different sections, writing was what I was struggling with becuase I was so used to using a computer. On diligently following this courseware, I managed to secure a decent overall score of 8.5. Great work guys and thanks again!

Excellent course ! You can achieve best results with flexible tuition free course ! I took 6.5 in exam, with 1.5 month preparation with this course. I want to admit that I had no time for deep studying and instructors from this program gave me all the major tips and detailed information about all the parts of the test. Thank you for that !
