Arvind - student of the month!!
Arvind joined iPass in January this year as a student on the IELTS Express course, with a very clear objective of scoring at least band 7 in each of the 4 modules in her General Training IELTS test.
Her original intention was to take the test in April, but having received the feedback from her tutors indicating that she needed more time to improve her writing skills in particular, she decided to postpone the test until May. Already confident that she could obtain the desired scores in Reading and Listening, Arvind enrolled on a specific IELTS Writing & Speaking course in March so that she could concentrate more on those two skills.
Arvind was especially keen to improve her level of writing and was constantly seeking ways to hone her letter writing and essay writing skills, paying close attention to all the feedback she received from the iPass tutors and never afraid to ask questions so that she could continue improving.
The same was true in the Skype sessions that I did with Arvind - she heeded every piece of advice I gave her and made a conscious effort to incorporate the advice in each new session. As a teacher, it is an absolute joy to work with students like Arvind who are so keen to enhance their skills, not just for the sake of the IELTS test, but because they actively want to achieve better communication skills and have a genuine interest in languages!
Arvind’s hard work and determination paid off when she took the exam in May. She achieved her desired score of overall 7.5 with band 7 in speaking and writing; exactly what she needed for her registration and license to practise Physiotherapy in Canada.
Everyone at iPass would like to wish Arvind a very happy and successful future in Canada!!
