The best video is here, and specifically, for three of my IELTS students currently. Now, we all know the annoying linkers that TOEFL iBT coaches spout: therefore, however, furthermore, also. Yeah, these maybe be good in providing structure, but when it comes to a conversation with a human, you need to sound natural. Compartmentalizing your information and knowing the body of your talk is of the utmost importance. So let’s get there.
We’re back with another IELTS Training session! In this video, both my student and I are doing an IELTS segment where we’re supposed to find the words (one word only) and fill it in.
In this session, however, I had a bit of a doubt about branch, indicating that it may be tool. And in the end, tool was the answer.
I’m bringing you a special I haven’t necessarily done in almost a year. I was really big on IELTS last year, but because TOEFL iBT became huge, I just steered clear of it. Well, it’s back! And in today’s episode, I go over the cohesion!
Finally! It’s been months since I had this badge (originally on Patreon), but it has officially debuted to the public! I’m absolutely ecstatic to get this back out there. So what is this?

Have you been having difficulties in improving your Speaking Part II? Not exactly sure how to answer the question? Are you lacking story-telling?
Well, it’s time to present you with this webinar!
Last year, lots of my Filipina students had always gotten the infamous 6.5 speaking band. They were never able to get a 7.0, which is required to get their license and head to America to practice nursing. After giving them structure, implementing story-telling, and practicing their reasoning….they were able to achieve these bands.
So, on June the 26th, I will host a Speaking Part II webinar at 6 pm Bangkok, Thailand time (GMT +7) and the first 3-5 attendees will have a coaching session with me!
You’ll be tested right off the back in the beginning, and then the coaching session will begin with a variety of ways of answering the question.
Sounds good, Arsenio…but how much?
That’s right. $5 gets you not only in but also access to the webinar for a lifetime.
Not able to make it? NO PROBLEM!
You can purchase the webinar later for the same price!
In saying that, message me and inquire today! Also, follow me on IG for more information!
We’re back with another super special! Today I’ll be describing to you, in words, what I’m seeing. Then, you’ll be able to see how I’m able to follow the conversation because of it. This is going to be very useful for those of you who have difficulty with diagrams. So let’s get into it!
Have you ever started something that you didn’t know would be very beneficial to humanity? I have — and it’s this podcast. When I started it just over 3 years ago, I had no idea that it would be the number 1 TOEFL, TOEIC and IELTS podcast across all big platforms. I found a niche market, provided a service, and now I have an amazingly growing community.
In today’s podcast, we’ll be discussing just that, and big achievements throughout our lives.
Happy March, everyone! This was a consultation I had done back in December of last year and it was FIRE! To hear the golden nuggets that my student had given me can really be useful for a lot of you out there. So, please tune in to this podcast, have your notepad and stuff ready, and get ready to be amazed!
Update: As of December 15th, Bruna received the following scores.
It’s been a few months, but I’m officially back with another IELTS Listening practice. In today’s video/podcast, I will be breaking down the typical section 1 form and allowing you guys to answer the questions. If you want the answers, make sure you view my blog!
