Sean explains how he went from speaking band 6.5 to 8.5 in only 7 months!

This is really an incredible success story. On top of growing his speaking 2 entire bands, Sean also went from a writing band of 6 to 7.5 and he scored perfect 9s in both listening and reading. This all equated to an overall 8.5 performance. Truly outstanding!

    Eventhough I have improved my English language significantly in last two years, I think Sean’s advice is really useful for my further study. I had 17 attempts and I am waiting to receive results from last one which was on 18th of January. I need all 7 bands, but unfortunately my last score was L 8 R 7 W 6.5 S 7,5. I think this time dear Lord will hear my prayers. Thank you Ryan for this wonderful site and your amazing teaching methods.
