CNS II – Target score achieved!
Please, introduce yourself.
My name is Sayuri and I’m from Japan. It is my first time to study abroad and also it is my first time to stay more than a week in the foreign country.
Why did you start to study IELTS?
Because I want to enter a University in Malaysia and university requires me to get IELTS score. When I was a high school student, I had considered about enter the University in Japan but for now, it seems more interesting to learn something in English. So I decided to study abroad.
How about the learning environment in CNSⅡ?
The learning environment is very good. Although I have never studied in language school, it is easy to understand the teacher’s lessons. Moreover, I can concentrate on my study.
[About the IELTS course]
While studying at CNSⅡ for the last 7weeks, how did you feel?
I feel I improved my English skill than before. Because I can get a lot of knowledge about IELTS and I like living here. There are different nation’s friends that I can make so I can enjoy more.
Which class is the most effective to study?
I think reading class. Before I came here, I did not know how to find keywords and answers but after I learned, I understood how to deal with the question. My score has increased and it became easier to solve the reading question than before.
As a Japanese student, what is the most effective point while studying in CNSⅡ?
I think in Japan, fewer academies teach IELTS than in the Philippines. And if I study in Japan, most teachers will be Japanese, but here, it is more effective to learn English because I study with foreign teachers. Also, there are fewer opportunities to speak with Japanese people so, that is why I can train myself better.
How about the quality of CNSⅡ teachers?
Excellent! their teaching skill is high, so whenever I ask a question to teachers, they always give me advice. Moreover, they are so friendly that I can study without nervous. It is very comfortable to learn English.
Who is your best teacher? And why do you think so?
For me, all teachers are my best teachers because I respect them all. All of them are very benevolent and funny.
[Secrets to improve an IELTS score]
What was your weakest subject and how did you improve this one?
It was the speaking and listening part. Since I was not accustomed to speaking and listening English. Especially in speaking, it was not familiar to organize the sentence well and tell people my opinion fluently. When I cannot come up with ideas, I have many pauses, so it was difficult for me. But now, I get accustomed to speaking and listen in English than before because I usually talk with foreign people, therefore, these skills have improved compared to before.
[Tips for new students]
What is your tip for new students?
Being talkative. It will be helpful to learn English more efficiently. Since I had been exposed to the English environment, there were many chances to use English. You should know at least how to converse properly.
