CNS II – Actions Speak Louder Than Words
by Nancy (Taiwan/41/24weeks)
Please, introduce yourself.
My Taiwanese name is Li Shu Zhen, but you can call me Nancy.
Why did you start to study IELTS?
I need to get an IELTS score since I want to study abroad in Europe.
How did you know CNSⅡ for the first time, and why did you choose this academy?
Before I came here, I had checked the information about international English academies through Google. I read a lot of epilogues, that CNSⅡ has the rigorous style of study and many experienced teachers. I thought these were very important factors for students to get a high score in a short time. I needed to improve my English level quickly, so I came here to CNSⅡ.
What is your plan after finishing the study in CNSⅡ?
I will take the IELTS test in Taiwan. If the IELTS score meets the requirement of my favorite school, I am more likely to apply for a master course.
While studying at CNSⅡ for the last 3 weeks, how did you feel?
In my opinion, the morning test is very helpful for me to improve vocabulary. Teachers are nice and have lots of experiences. I enjoy attending 1:1 classes because my teachers point out strictly my weakness and try to make it better based on my English level. Until now, I just have only 1 speaking group class. My speaking group class has some benefits that we can exchange our ideas with each other and at the same time, my speaking teacher suggests and teaches us several advanced vocabularies and idioms. Even though I feel a little bit tired about studying, I am happy to study IELTS here in CNSⅡ.
Which class is the most effective to study?
In fact, speaking and writing classes are very useful for me. For example, although I cannot use proper vocabularies, I am able to learn how to speak English smoothly while attending the classes. I do not have enough English foundation about writing, but as time goes by, I have naturally learned how to write essays within a limited time.
How about the quality of CNSⅡ teachers?
In my opinion, CNSⅡ teachers are very good. I think they have enough experiences about teaching IELTS. Because of this, they understand what I say immediately and know how to guide me effectively.
What was your weakest subject and how did you improve this one?
On the first day when I came to CNSⅡ, I took a level test. Based on my test result, I realized that writing is my weakness. In this case, I just believe that endless practice will be the best way. At the same times, I have read more articles to improve my vocabulary and study effective essay structure.
Based on your experience, how about Baguio?
The weather is pleasant, neither too cold nor too hot. The place is safe because there are a lot of universities near our school. People in Baguio city are honest and innocent. It is very convenient for us to buy everything, even if we can go to the night market or a garden park. However, we are placed in the center of Baguio city, for the reason that, the air is sometimes not so clean.
Before coming to CNSⅡ, what should new students prepare for successful study?
Please improve your vocabulary first. Before you come to the academy, try to take a test in your country so that you can focus on the weakest subject in CNSⅡ. When you come to CNSⅡ, you will see your learning outcomes in a short time.
