It is a matter of immense pleasure to write few words from the side of the Instructor. I myself, Mr.Hem RanaBhat is an English/Teachers’ Trainer and IELTS Instructor and have been teaching IELTS in different educational institutes including Kaski Educational Consultancy for five years. Furthermore, I have been serving as the Principal in various schools for eleven years. I have taught thousands of students and what I found from my experience is that Nepalese students mostly get problem in their pronunciation. In fact, English is a tonal and stressed language. Furthermore, speakers and/or users of English must use Supra-segmental features while speaking it. I read the minds of the students before, while and after teaching them and actually find them immensely pleased from the inner core of their hearts at the Consultancy. Likewise, Mr. Andrew Orchard, topper student of English, (Cambridge University – 1972) also instructs the students here. He tries his best to reply the queries of the learners of English Languagein his native tone that I get a lot of beneficial especially in listening and speaking.Let’s introduce what IELTS, its testing format, exam and so on is.

Why IELTS Exam is required?

IELTS 2020 exam is required for migration as well as academic purposes abroad in English speaking countries like Australia, UK, New Zealand, USA, and Canada. It is the only English Language Test approved by UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) for visa applicants applying both outside and inside the UK. A lot of students get confused about why are the IELTS scores required. The simple answer to this is that foreign universities and visa granting authorities need to be sure that you will not have communication issues while staying in the country. You need to show a good understanding and strong command of the English language and that is why your overall IELTS scores are so important. Another common doubt students have is whether IELTS is a compulsory exam or not. No, IELTS isn’t compulsory in all university admissions. Many universities might not even require IELTS scores for admission purposes. But remember that if you don’t take IELTS, your chances of getting the student visa might suffer as the visa officers may not be convinced about your English proficiency without IELTS scores. So it is safer to appear for IELTS and aim to score at least 6 bands overall. However, the score differs as per the level, subject and the University of the Students.
