Tony scores an overall band 8.0 on his first attempt!

Would you like these IELTS results?

I had the pleasure of speaking to Tony, a triumphant IELTS candidate from Nigeria.  Tony’s secret to success is nothing new: study, study, study!  However, I think you will appreciate hearing the story of how discipline, dedication and creativity can help an IELTS student nail 8.0.

Listen to the entire conversation by clicking here!  (The first two minutes are a little rough, but the quality is much better after this.)

I’m looking for successful students to interview!  If you’ve scored band 7, 8 or 9 on the examination and would like to share the secret sauce to your IELTS hamburger, please get in touch with me:
