Episode 41 - Glenn uses iPhone and Facebook apps to help him score band 8
Glenn used technology to his advantage while preparing for his IELTS. As he explains in this interview, he found useful apps on both Facebook and his phone to help him practice his language while on the go. Using 'Criminal Case' on the Facebook platform and 'Word Mess' on his iPhone, Glenn pushed his lexicon and honed his ability to use different words in different contexts. If you are an IELTS candidate, give these resources a try. This interview also has a bit of a back story. Glenn and I actually held the interview in the summer of 2014, but the file I recorded on my laptop became corrupted. It was thus a pleasant surprise to discover the file playable almost two years later! Glenn's advice is just as valid today as it was in 2014, so I think you are going to get a lot out of this talk. I hope you enjoy this episode! Please don't forget that IELTS speaking and writing coaches are standing by at IELTSNetwork.com to provide you with the feedback you need to succeed.

Episode 40 - IELTS is like...American football?! - Slava explains and shares the secret behind his band 8 in reading
A few weeks ago, I opened my inbox and saw an email entitled 'Have you ever thought about how American football is like the IELTS?' I had to admit to myself that I had NEVER thought about that...nor did I ever think I would think about that! The email was from Slava, an IELTS aspirant that managed to score band 8 in reading and band 7 overall. His strategies, results, and American football comparisons were intriguing, so I set up a time to talk with him and tap into his insight. In this interview, you will hear Slava talk about how he strengthened himself mentally through a somewhat Pavlovian approach to his training. Weeks ahead of time, he was progressing through his Saturdays as though they were exam days - getting up early, doing a few mild warmup exercises, and engaging a practise exam. His relentless approach to grooming himself for exam success paid off with the mark he needed. This is a great conversation, and I feel very privileged to have had the opportunity to talk with Slava about this success. If you are an IELTS candidate that has scored band 8 or higher, consider coming on the show and sharing your story. Your advice could be what unlocks IELTS success for another person, so don't hesitate - email me (Ryan) at firstname.lastname@example.org!
