Hello everybody my name is Yana Immis this
is my channel this is my channel I will talk about IELTS today today we will cover the
topic which is very interesting it is IELTS how to pass IELTS with at least 7 points I
did that you can do that everybody can do that it is just a matter of persistence practice
daily weekly brain practice I took in in 2008 for fun and I passed from the first attempt
with 7 points and I wish you the same so let me tell you how to pass IELTS very well. I am focusing on education in Germany and
I am helping out students to get admission in Bachelor Master, MBA programs today I will
talk about how to pass IELTS test not just to pass IELTS with 5, 5.5, 6, 6.5 but to pass
it with 7 points it is possible it is just a matter of practice IELTS is the most popular
English test created for the non English speakers who are willing to either take the work abroad
or to join the international company or the students who would like to study in international
institution or to study in the English language it is a standardized test which tests your
reading, your writing, your listening and your speaking skills. Most of the time the test is held on one day
but sometimes they will ask you to come before and pass the conversation with the native
speaker beforehand or right the opposite – after in my case I passed it in Russia and I had
it held in one day a lot of stress and from the first attempt I scored 7 in this test
you have the grades from 0 to 9 so with 9 being a native speaker more or less 8 being
extremely fluent and 7 will be the official graduate level English language knowledge
joining point and if you score 6 you already can qualify for very good Bachelor programs
if you score 7 you can qualify yourself for very good Master programs 5.5 or 6.5 is like
the bridge points where it is unsure if the university will let you in the program or
not it all depends on the university selection more than 3 million people take IELTS in 140
countries per year so you are not one of the few you are one of the many so many people
do that so why can’t you do that you don’t have to be afraid of IELTS there is a lot
of myths going on it is probably from the people who failed it is not a difficult test
it just requires you to read attentively the tasks and to know the structure of the test
there can be people who speak English very well who don’t score well on IELTS because
they didn’t know the structure and time frame for the test but then there are people who
are not very good in English but they learnt the basics of the test what is required from
them and they score really well it is just a combination of the both your english language
knowledge and the structure of the test knowledge you can take IELTS up to 48 times a year there
are a lot of testing locations and if you fail once or you don’t like your result once
you can apply and you can go again to pass it so it’s not like it is a critical point
where if you do not pass it once it is OVER IELTSconsists of a few points listening reading
writing and speaking so it is approximately 2.5 – 3 hours of your time dedicated to it
but you have to pracrice beforehand you have to practice the sample tests – there are so
many available online you do not really have to buy materials you can download free materials
and study on your own what I did I attended twice a week IELTS course in my university
in Russia and in 2 months I passed it easily I am not only going to talk about how to pass
the test because everybody can pass it I want you to pass it really well and I want you
to not put half a year of your life studying for the test I want you to pass it with some
hints and some tips so I prepared the list of tips & tricks which I personally used and
what people on the forums advise they will definitely help you to be better at the test
I will talk about how the test is split and what you should expect now about each module
of the test so you know what is expected from you IELTS LISTENING PART for me was the most
difficult part because even though I am used to playing computer games with the Americans
and what not for me it was difficult because in the listening part you have to listen to
the audio recordings of people coming from different backgrounds and countries so you
can hear Canadian, you can hear New Zealander, you can hear Australian, American – you are
not used to this speech especially if you are learning English from the books and you
barely listen to native speakers so for this point definitely I advise you to practice
listening to the native speakers either TV shows or I don’t know, audio recordings, podcasts,
this is really required just for you to train your ear to get used to the native speakers
talk and the worst point is that normally in the school when we were listening to audio
recordings in our English lessons they always repeated them twice or three times in IELTS
test they only put it once so if you miss it oh no so what I advise you to do is keep
the paper next to you put down the key points you hear they might help you when you are
putting the results to the answer sheet I also advise you to sit close to the audio
if you can because experience shows the last rows do not hear anything generally there
are four different recordings there is a monologue there is a dialogue there also is a conversation
between two people in educational scenario most of the time and there is normally a conversation
between two people in every day scenario something that you are expected to understand basically
the test is not only for you to study abroad and for them to understand that you can it
is that can you live abroad with your english language knowledge? If you do not understand the conversations
between your neighbours when you live abroad like this is painful I mean, if you do not
get it, it is going to be a really gruesome experience for you abroad what you have to
pay attention to this is an English language test so you have to pay attention to the way
you write the answers if the answer is correct but the spelling of the word is wrong then
you are wrong so this you need to be really attentive to when you are practicing IELTS
at home make sure that your spelling is 100% correct at the end of these tasks you have
time to transfer your points to the answer sheet you have separate time for it so make
sure that your notes are clear and then you can just at the end transfer them to the answer
sheet instead of actually thinking, oh my God, where I have to put what so the listening
part has 40 questions, if you get 30 correct, you score 7 IELTS in that part IELTS consists
of 4 parts so at the end you can have let’s say 8 for listening but 6 for reading and
writing so your overall score will go down so you have to score equally well on each
to achieve your dream result so in the listening part out of 40 points 30 are required for
7 and 32 points correct are required for 7.5 IELTS READING PART here it’s tricky if you
are not used to reading a lot. If you are not used to read on the indicated
time frame because you are given a lot of different texts they are long they are short
you have to find logical reasoning you have to find answers you have to analyze something
but it is really limited time what I thought it was not enough so the only thing that you
can do is to read newspapers and you can practice you have to set yourself a timer because I
literally finished my task exactly when the time was over so that is pretty tough practice
practice practice reading is the weakest point for the majority of students who take IELTS
not because they don’t read yeah they also don’t read much these days but also because
they are not used to reading on a timer normally reading consists of a few sections one really
long text academic text two texts which have also academic background maybe news or what
not and then there are a few small texts about the every day scenarios there will be different
abstracts from the text from the books from the newspapers from the magazines the maximum
what you can do is to read alot before you take the test this way you train your brain
to concentrate on reading on finding the logics and what not so what you have to do is when
you are reading make sure to underline for yourself the most important points the logic
of the author the thinking of the author because these will be the points the questions are
asked for there are 40 questions you can also get multiple choice there and out of 40 questions
for scoring 7 IELTS you need to have 30 questions correct if you are aiming higher 7.5 IELTS
you are required to have 33/40 correct IELTS WRITING PART here you are required to write
two different texts one is analytical or you have to analyze a graph or I had to write
the directions from a map and second part is you have to write an essay on a certain
topic where you have to present your vocabulary really well contrasts opinion argument and
you have to analyze you have to give different synonyms you have to describe point out the
view so that’s where you have to learn the connecting words in my opinion I personally
believe, I don’t know anything you would prefer when I was practicing for IELTS I had to describe
a map so I was given a map and I had to describe how to get to a certain point not using the
same phrases more or less then the second time I had to analyze the table which had
statistics about the water consumption in London for the last month and I had to analyze
that like a few I don’t know… points well basically that is cool because you train yourself
to be able to analyze the tables in your future studies so yeah I mean it is all actually
useful you will probably think oh my God I will never use that YOU WILL to be able to
score well you have to present your opinion really well you have to use synonyms you have
to use your rich vocabulary connecting words and of course no mistakes in spelling no mistakes
in grammar no bullet points open sentences not less and not more than amount of words
required practice makes perfect last but not least IELTS SPEAKING you will talk with a
native speaker you will have to present yourself in an interview and he will ask you different
questions from different sections maybe about a hobby what we were trained for during the
IELTS preparation courses is if they ask you a topic you do not know about don’t lie because
they will keep on pushing it and you won’t be able to answer this is bad the best is
to say you do not know or that you would prefer to talk about a different topic as an example
I was asked do read news? and I said well not really ok do you read books? what kind of books? so then you start talking
because if you don’t do something don’t lie just tell them I don’t and then change the
topic because it is understandable you cannot be like fully diverse well you can… some
can’t… 🙂 IELTS result comes in two weeks normally
and validity is for two years it means that within two years you have to use it the expired
IELTS normally people do not accept the universities do not accept the thing is that I was always
questioning why 2 years like c’mon I am not gonna forget the language aha no. I will. Actually I met the people who took IELTS and
then their certificate expired and they didn’t speak English 3 years after this was horrible
so basically they just learnt to pass it and then they forgot about it so I understand
why the validity is there so make sure within these two years to apply to the university
of your dreams and good luck with everything you can already apply to schools before your
IELTS is ready or even before you took the test because you will understand how you feel
about it if you need any more help please let me know and contact me any time and if
you have your IELTS ready and you are looking to study in Germany let me know I will help
you with admissions to the schools
