I never had followed such an interesting way to learn a language. I really enjoyed it! The system contains so many educative resources that I’m afraid I’ll never take full advantage of them. However, I’ll try to use all of them.

I’d like to recommend the IELTS Preparation Course to anyone who is thinking of taking the real exam. It really is a good course and gives you a very good idea of the band score you can expect to be awarded.
