What To Do Before You Sit for an IELTS, Part 2



WHAT TO DO BEFORE YOU SIT FOR AN IELTS TEST, ESPECIALLY FOR ACADEMIC PURPOSES (PART 2)


  • MENTAL PREPARATION: INTROSPECTION, DETERMINATION, AND COMMITMENT

You’ve done some research about IELTS, then you make some improvements on your General English. Those are one good start. The third step would be something necessary in order to prepare yourself further – mental preparation.
This should involve three factors, which are introspection, determination, and commitment.
INTROSPECTION should be something that you do constantly. Never ever think that your English is good enough for a 7.0 IELTS if you’re only capable of speaking with a stranger on a plane or order a menu in a foreign fast food restaurant.
DETERMINATION is another mental preparation that you should have. Do not lose motivation and reason to improve your English. Keep learning through different discourses. If you have the luxury of having enough time to watch English movies and listen to music in English, Listen to NIKE for a while and “Just. Do. It.”
COMMITMENT, in the end, is one factor that you need to have in learning English. If you’re currently learning English in a course or in some education institutions, make sure that you can discipline yourself to learn more and more about English itself. Aim for a more consistent grammar, a wide range of vocabulary, and a high standard of proficiency.

In brief, set your goals straight and focus your mind on being fluent in English.



  •  TAKE AN IELTS PREDICTION TEST


Taking an IELTS Prediction Test will also be a helpful preparatory step for you. It is a simulation test which will give you advantages. First, it gives you advantages of familiarity of the situation. By taking an IELTS Prediction test, you will have the foretaste of the real IELTS test so that you’re more prepared to do it. Furthermore, you can take a peek at the typical questions that would appear in the real IELTS Test.

Unfortunately, an IELTS Prediction test will cost some money. If you want a free prediction test, you could look for institutions which provide promotions.

Also, not all education institution provides all IELTS bands in their prediction test. If you need a prediction test which also covers the SPEAKING section, you can contact SpecTa Education. Their offices are available in Pantai Indah Kapuk (North Jakarta), Kelapa Gading (Central Jakarta), and Bintaro (Tangerang, near South Jakarta).



  • JOIN AN IELTS PREPARATION COURSE


If you wish to obtain deeper comprehension on IELTS with useful tips and tricks along with supervision from eligible teachers, you could find an institution which provides IELTS preparation courses.  With preparation courses, you will be prepared with great materials from different books. Also, you will get a lot of useful tips and tricks from the teachers.
Subjectively speaking, I think IELTS Preparation Course would be beneficial especially in Speaking and Writing, since these two subjects cannot be learned as an autodidact learner. It would be difficult to point out your own mistakes without any feedback from others.
Reading and Listening, although possible to be learned with lots of research, would be subjects in which you could improve faster also with guidance from the teachers. Teachers have the capability in pointing out your bad habits, your constant mistakes, and things you can do to improve your skills in these two bands.
