CNS II – Strong Reasons Make Strong Actions
by Yasu (Japan/19/14weeks)
Please, introduce yourself.
My name is Yasunari Kunieda. I am from Japan, Tokyo. I am here to study IELTS since April 15th.
Why did you start to study IELTS?
I want to go to the University in Canada. Because It is cheaper than the USA and I heard Canadian speak English well. I want to learn about environmental science so I need 6.0 IELTS score.
How did you know CNSⅡ for the first time, and why did you choose this academy?
Through my agent. They recommended me this school is the best to learn IELTS, so I decided to learn English here during 4 months.
[About the IELTS course]
While studying at CNSⅡ for last 9 weeks, how did you feel?
Before I came here, actually I did not like English. However, now I am interested in learning English, because after I came here, I felt my English level is better than before so it makes me more confident in English.
Which class is the most effective to study?
1:1 Writing class. For the IELTS exam, the sentences have to be exact and accurate. 1:1 class is very helpful to correct my answer. Also, the teacher gives me many advice and templates for writing. In addition, I can also use these things in another subject, such as speaking.
Who is your best teacher? And why do you think so?
Teacher Lorein is one of my best teachers. She is my 1:1 speaking teacher and she have a lot of vocabularies so I could learn many vocabularies.
[Secrets to improve an IELTS score]
What was your weakest subject and how did you improve this one?
Listening part was my weakest part but now, my listening skill was improved because of the morning test. Moreover, teachers always use English when we have a class, so it helped me to improve listening ability.
Based on your experience, how about Baguio?
The cost of living is lower than Japan, so I can enjoy shopping more. However, the weather is usually rainy during rainy season but not too hot and not too cold, so I think the temperature is suitable to live.
Before coming to CNS II, what should new students prepare for successful study?
Students have to learn many vocabularies before coming here. Reason is that knowing a lot of words can make classes more understandable, furthermore, it will be more efficient to learn English here.
