Mr. Thanapop Juthavantana
IELTS 7.5 | Listening 8.5, Reading 7.5, Writing 6.5, Speaking 7.0
“Studying for the IELTS exam here allows you to take a mock exam which helps you to be familiar with the real exam taken in the exam room. Studying for the IELTS exam here, I had the opportunity to practice the four skills, listening, reading, writing, and speaking. More importantly, the teachers here equipped me with IELTS techniques to increase my scores in each part of the exam. Also, they guided me through how to manage different parts of the exam effectively and how to apply the techniques learned from them in the real exam. This helped me to save time and do well on the real exam. I had never taken IELTS, before I decided to study here. At that time, I did not know how to score well on IELTS exam. I took one course here and at the same time practiced doing mock exams at home. I scored 7.5 and it only took me two months to prepare myself for it. Moreover, teachers here were very dedicated to their teaching and to their students’ success. They checked up on my IELTS test results and hope for the best score for me. I can say that studying here, I did not only gain a lot of knowledge, but also met a wonderful consultant. WIN staff also were willing to help and give advice on studying, exam taking, university preparation. I felt content to study here.
P.S. I studied with teacher Ben. And I gave him a thumb up for his wonderful teaching and his devotion to his students.”
Miss Nutthamon Itthipoowadol
IELTS 7.5 | Listening 8.5, Reading 8.5, Writing 6.5, Speaking 7.0
“I had an opportunity to take both a private class and group class here at Wesminster. Each teacher here dedicated their time to teach their students. I learned various test-taking techniques and I gained higher and higher scores every time I took IELTS. When I took a group class, there were not too many students in the class so everyone got well taken care of by the teacher. We got to practice all four skills required for IELTS. I also learned from possible mistakes from my classmates.
The reason why I decided to take a private class was because I wanted to increase my IELTS writing score to 6.5. I was already satisfied with my scores on other parts of the exam. I had the opportunity to study with Mr. Richard. He constantly gave feedback on my essay writing and equipped me with all important essay writing techniques. He had interesting teaching pattern. He made sure that I know all the basic knowledge of writing and add more techniques to help increase my writing score.
Studying at Westminster gives me both knowledge and fun. I thank Westminster for helping me get 7.5 and to be able to study at Imperial College London.”
Mr. Rachodbun Srimanus
“Choosing Westminster International to study for the IELTS exam was the right decision, as they had invaluable information concerning the intricate details of the exam that I didn’t know of beforehand. Initially, I tried to study at home, but I felt that I wasn’t studying on topics that were actually relevant in the exam. My sister and I studied with our new teacher, Joe, a very amiable person who was always willing to help us whenever he could. The daily doses of homework worksheets greatly helped me in practicing for the various types of essays and gave me the focus I needed. At the end of the course, my confidence in taking the test had greatly increased, and I walked out of the test room without much worry. I would like to thank my teacher Joe for teaching me tips that were very helpful in taking the test. I would also want to thank the staff for providing me with valuable resources that were not available to me at home.
I would highly recommend studying for the IELTS exams at Westminster International.”
Miss Wechapraan Srimanus
“Before attending IELTS classes in Westminster International my parents bought a huge stack of practice test books for the SAT, TOEFL and IELTS papers. As I flicked through them I became interested in taking the IELTS examinations. Unfortunately, we realized that we only had a few days left until the deadline to decide whether we should take them. After realizing that my time was limited I tried to study for what I thought would be on the exams. However, there was too much content to grasp, so my mother signed me up to an IELTS exam course in Westminster International. My teacher Mr. Joe gave me numerous advice and key points to study and get a good score for the different subject areas of the IELTS exam. Honestly, I could not have done this at home all by myself. Taking the IELTS exams has provided me with a great opportunity to further pursue my dreams. Westminster International helped prepare me beforehand with a customized, well organized plan for each of its students.I couldn’t believe it when I scored a 7.0 on the IELTS exam!
I couldn’t have done it without Westminster International.”
Miss Nuttanid Tossamartvorakul
“I’m very impressed with Westminster School because it has very relaxing teaching and learning environment. I took a 20-hour private class and I really liked it. The teacher walked me through every part of IELTS exam and equipped me with techniques to help me finish the exam within the time required and pointed out important parts in the exam to help more score well.”
Miss Nuttanich Luengteerapap
“My name is Pun and I decided to study at Westminster because I had a chance to do Mock Test IELTS Speaking Part at OCSC International Education Expo 2018 at Siam Paragon. I was very impressed because the examiner gave me very detailed feedback and helped me analyze my strengths and weaknesses. He also attentively walked me through the speaking part. Westminster staff didn’t make me feel pressured and gave me useful advice (Apart from that, I had heard of the reputation of the school while I was searching for a place to study for IELTS). I was not forced to take several classes at the same time but advised to take an intensive course which required a little time of studying . It’s worth taking the course to save both your budget and time. I personally think that I have good foundation of English. However, I hadn’t used it for a long time so I forgot most of it. Studying here has helped me revive my English knowledge and improve my skills. They also gave me important test-taking techniques. So I scored well although I only had less than 2 months to prepare for the exam.”
Miss Yanisa Sriprasertying
“I thank Westminster for helping me to gain a desired score. Even though the private writing and speaking class I took was short, I have increased my knowledge and gained a lot of techniques I could apply in a test room. Personally I like Teacher Richard very much. He point out what I could do to improve my English. He also advised me what examiner wants and helped me improve my writing by using vocabulary or sentence structures appropriate for the student’s ability to increase band score. This is very important for those who want to increase their writing score in a limited time. Also, by taking a private class here, it has helped me to become familiar with having conversations with a native speaker which largely helped to reduce anxiety and nervousness when I had a speaking test.
More importantly, I got enormous moral support and help from teachers and staff at Westminster and they gave me high confidence and success in IELTS exam.”
Miss Kanchaporn Kiatsuarpanon
“ Before studying here at Westminster, I never liked English. But after taking a class here, I have started to like it and felt that English is not that difficult like I imagined. A fun teaching and learning environment here and approachable teachers made me happy every time I was in the class.”
Miss Rattaporn Boothongkum
“ I decided to study here because my friend recommended this school to me and it’s convenient for me to commute from home to this school. What I like the most about the school is the fact that I got to study with a native speaker who helped me to understand what I’m doing but didn’t tell me to recite patterns useful for the exam. At the end of the coure, I got to take a mock test and received useful feedback from my teacher. And the score I received was beyond my expectation. Furthermore, Westminster staff were helpful and also gave me a good deal of moral support.”
MD. Taweep Kamnerdkarn
“ I’m a doctor and I have a very tight work schedule. I was very picky at choosing a school to study for IELTS and expected to have a desired score after taking a course. I chose Westminster because of many factors such as excellent teachers, convenience in travel, and learning environment. What’s more, the school has WIN Education which is an agency assisting me in applying for a university to study in MSc Clinical Dermatology program. And finally I got to study at Cardiff University. If your priority in choosing a school to study IELTS is quality, Westminster will never fail you.”
