What to Expect on Webinar?

IELTS Speaking Part 2 – Webinar

  • Introduction
  • Connecting words
  • Practice Speaking (Impromptu Style)
  • Listening to your audio and critiquing it
  • Task Cards
  • Story-telling style

IELTS Speaking Webinar (June 26th at 6 pm GMT +7) | Part 2

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?

$5!


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!
