The IELTS Masterclass was an informative session that gave me more confidence to complete my IELTS test soon. I understood the assessment criteria for all four parts of the test better and got good tips on how to improve my upcoming test results. The class is definitely most useful if you go through the Masterclass booklet ahead of your class. The booklet is sent to you along with your ticket.

Very useful tips that I hadn't learned during my IELTS preparation course.

An IELTS score has very wide currency ... it can give entry to courses and to immigration opportunities.
English language teacher
The test was with a real person rather than a machine, so I felt comforable
IELTS puts people first
Once again, I just want to say thank you for giving us free time for this masterclass seminar. I have friends and I will highly recommend this program.

I took IELTS and got an IELTS score 7.5. With my IELTS high score, I stood out from 24 candidates for a jointly education PhD program set by the US Fulbright Program. The design of IELTS test is customised and can reflect the genuine English capability of test takers. My English skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing had been greatly improved when I prepared for IELTS. I really appreciated IELTS which brought me great opportunities and personal developments.

Thanks to IDP IELTS Masterclass for the interesting webinar, it was very informative, well organised and practical.

I heard IELTS can arrange a special test for physically-challenged people and I applied for a lip-reading listening test. The application procedure was easy to follow, and the test was arranged with great care. I got a satisfactory score and I am more confident than ever before about studying abroad.
Zhang Fang Jin, Beijing
I would like to thank you for your help and kind attention to us for IELTS general training exam on 8 December. We, a group of friends from Tehran, attended the IELTS exam in Istanbul and your staff helped us so much. This is in appreciation of the IDP staff during our registration and also examination day. It was excellent to be at such a great center.
Nasrin − Tehran, IRAN
IELTS makes the world a bigger, more open place. I am grateful for my parents who encouraged me to learn English as it transformed me into a citizen of the world.
Pavel Kachailov, analyst at large accounting firm
This was a fantastic presentation! It was very clear, practical and moved at a good pace. I would highly recommend these webinars
Shauna
I like that they are open to give us some information and kind of training course without any cost so we can get ready for this important test

Tony did a great job both in terms of offering critical material and his style of delivery. He was very engaging, positive and interesting. Good teacher.

After graduating from university in Russia I applied to a large company in North America for a position that required English language proficiency. With my IELTS score I was able to prove my true-to-life ability to communicate in English for my first international employment opportunity. I have since worked in Bermuda and now live in Singapore, working for one of the most famous hotel brands in the world. With the invaluable experience that I have gained working overseas, IELTS has made a priceless contribution to progress my career and my life.
Yulia Chelyakova, Conference Services Floor Manager, Singapore
IELTS is a fair test! I think IELTS is a good test that gives you results you deserve. I would recommend it over TOEFL.
Svetlana Ukolova − from Russia
Tony is likeable and followed a good pace - he tried to help students with technical issues but was also cognizant of time and those students who followed the right steps and were set-up in time - which was a great balance.

Instructions before the IELTS written and speaking test were very clear and the people were nice and helpful. I found the written test pretty good. It was not too difficult, nor too simple. The results came quickly and I was accepted in the program and I am currently in the middle of my first year exams.

IELTS has been growing steadily for 20 years because it works. It’s good to know that IELTS has been the choice of millions of people over the years. IELTS stood out immediately because it tests all four skills – reading, writing, speaking and listening, giving a well-rounded assessment of my English

I have found the Masterclass really helpful. When I took IELTS test in Ukraine about 3 years ago, I was not aware of these classes. That’s a great opportunity to brush up on your knowledge and to get familiar with some tips and tricks from the IELTS professional.
