‘As a teacher, I highly recommend IELTS on Track to all of my students. In my opinion, IELTS on Track is the best introductory IELTS preparation book on the market. It is very clear and easy to use, and it has excellent step by step coverage of all aspects of the IELTS test’.

Douglas, Indonesia

‘IELTS on Track is the only practical book that I have used from start to finish in the whole of my school life. This means so much to me because I could develop my English skills, especially writing tasks, as previously I didn’t even know how to express my opinions in response to the task titles. I knew at once that this book was creative and made it easy to develop learning methods for success in the IELTS test’.

Mi Young, Korea

‘I don’t have any hesitation in saying that your guidance and IELTS on Track books have helped me a lot on my pathway to IELTS.

I am more than happy to pass this message on to those who are in need of better guidance. It is not just your knowledge of English which makes you successful, but it is the implementation of that knowledge. Your guidance, and the IELTS on Track Academic book/2CD pack increased my flexibility as a writer.

I referred to lots of books but most of the time I found I lacked flexibility particularly in writing, which forced me to adopt the ideas of others, which were very difficult for me to use. You helped me to realise that language is a subjective thing and that various different ways can be equally correct’.

Dr. Ashish, India

‘I used many IELTS practice materials when I prepared for the IELTS test. I found that the ‘IELTS on Track test practice Academic’ is very helpful, particularly the writing section. In that section, there are exercises to practice writing skills in the IELTS exam style, describing diagrams and writing essays, and opportunities to build up useful vocabulary for the IELTS writing test. CDs for the listening and sample speaking tests are also provided with the book so that I was able to practice as if I were in a real test. Also, there are some tips about how to speak continuously and fluently and how to keep going in a speaking test if you have no idea what you are going to say. The ‘IELTS on Track’ books contributed to my English-using skills and made me familiar with the IELTS exam style. So, I was not nervous when I sat the real test. I achieved an overall score of 6.5’.

Waniknan, Thailand

‘I found the IELTS on Track General Training book an invaluable help in preparing for the IELTS. It’s practical, user friendly, and thoroughly prepared with lots of exercises and exam materials designed with the students’ needs in mind. I especially love the section on tips for potential test takers regarding common areas or traps – they’re a life saver! I would definitely recommend this book to anyone wanting to improve their chances of getting a good score in IELTS.’

Elysia, Malaysia

‘IELTS on Track General Training helped me to prepare for and pass my IELTS test with high scores. Not only did it familiarize me with the test tasks, but also prepared me for the test procedure. I would recommend anyone that has to take the IELTS test to use the IELTS on Track books’.

Peter, Germany

‘The best part of preparing for IELTS with IELTS on Track for me was that it made my IELTS study more enjoyable and showed me what I needed to study most without discouraging me.

In order to help you make the best of your performance on a live IELTS test, IELTS on Track provides you with reliable examples and some practice for specific tasks that you will encounter in the test! As your study of IELTS on Track progresses, you naturally get more familiar with the IELTS test’.
