The recent announcement of the United Kingdom Visas and Immigration (UVKI) with regard to taking the IELTS UKVI has brought frenzy to many UK visa applicants, particularly Filipinos. In the past years, a great number of Filipinos have left the country to seek better opportunities in the UK. With great compensation packages and positive career growth, more and more Filipinos are encouraged to transfer and work in the UK. However, certain requirements have to be met including the completion of the IELTS UKVI.
Studying requires a lot of attention and focus. The more focus you give while reviewing, the better learning you get. In taking the IELTS or the International English Language Testing System examination, giving one’s 100% focus is the best way in reaching the desired target score.
Working as a nurse in the Philippines is one stressful job. Toxic is one word to describe an everyday battle in the hospital. Practicing my profession for three years now, I believe that this job could be very tiring but rewarding as well. Many have been said about nurses flying to other countries for a better job. Aside from hospital experience, Filipino nurses are asked to take the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) examination, an English proficiency test that I took a couple of months ago. I am Samantha and this is how online reviewing for the IELTS helped me get a very good score in the test.
When a Filipino tries to file a visa application in the United States or even in some English speaking countries, an English proficiency examination is a major requirement. Most of the time, the TOEFL or the Test of English as a Foreign Language is needed. Some may be familiar with this examination, while others remain clueless. What is the TOEFL?
The International English Language Testing System examination (IELTS) plays an important role in visa applications of non-native English speakers who are applying for work, study, or immigration in English speaking countries. For Filipinos, the IELTS is a requirement that must be completed.
Among the four sections of the IELTS examination, the speaking test makes IELTS examinees anxious and nervous. This is because the test is done face-to-face with a native English speaker or trained non-native English speaker examiners. Though the speaking test is only for ten to fifteen minutes, examinees usually get cold feet that could greatly affect their performance in the examination. Because of this, many are looking for speech coaches to help them better their responses in the speaking tasks, and at the same time develop their confidence in using the English language.
Good English speakers are very articulate in speaking. Some English speakers are very mesmerizing that you are left in awe by just looking and hearing them speak. Good English speakers are very persuasive and confident. They make every person in the crowd amazed and overwhelmed with their speaking skills. Non-native English speakers such as Filipinos are also possible to be very good English speakers. As a matter of fact, Filipinos are considered one of the nationalities who can speak English very well.
It has been a year now since I took my International English Language Testing System (IELTS) examination. I am a nurse and I have always dreamed of working in Australia. For me to be qualified, I had to take the IELTS. When I was told that this was an English proficiency examination, I felt confident since I know how to speak in English; however, there was a feeling of anxiety since English was seldom used in my workplace.
I checked online and found a review center. I decided to enrol in one since I had some time to spare and, my friends insisted. On the first few weeks, I was able to understand the flow of the speaking test. It was a shock for me to know that a native English speaker conducts the interview. The anxiety started to get heavier and it was weakening me inside. As days went by, we were taught different vocabulary, word expressions and even behaviour displayed during the speaking test.
