1.  What does IELTS Test?

IELTS tests proficiency in English.

2.  What is Meant by Proficiency?

Proficiency = a high degree of skill; expertise.

Synonyms: skill, skilfulness, expertise, experience, ability, capability, capacity, competence, competency, adeptness, adroitness, excellence, mastery, prowess, professionalism, aptitude, deftness, dexterity, finesse, facility, effectiveness, accomplishment, aptness, expertness, talent; In short, it is called “know-how”.

3.  ‘Proficiency’- A Live Experience!

Imagine you are driving a car through a busy street. A boy on a bicycle appears out of the blue and crosses the road.

If you are proficient in car driving, instantly you blow horn while moving your right foot from the accelerator and placing it over the brake pedal, grip your hand brake, and earnestly look forward to decide what to do next.

If you are NOT proficient in car driving, you get anxious, lose your presence of mind, go blank, waste a lot of time in that state of shock. There are instances where the novice driver nervously searching for the brake, gets confused and ends-up pressing accelerator with more vigour, resulting in a more severe accident!

8.  How is SpeakEnglishGym Approach Different?

SpeakEnglishGym is a scientific, technology-based: It builds strong foundation so that you can find success in any test - rest of the life!

1. At the outset, SpeakEnglishGym makes the candidates speak irrespective of his/her English proficiency using world’s only IELTS Speaking Simulator. SpeakEnglishGym takes this as the input for developing customised learning syllabuses for that person.

2. SpeakEnglishGym builds English skills through ideas. Spelling, grammar, prepositions, tenses, vocabulary, idioms and phrases, phrasal verbs, etc are taught through ideas. No mugging up.

9.  What Happens with SpeakEnglishGym Approach?

Most IELTS training centres rush through their lesson-plans, that are embodiments of decades of failed methods.

1. They re-teach the grammar and explain where each of those tenses are used. Then show them in tabular columns and equations. They ask the candidates to mug-up grammar rules. In reality, mugged-up grammar rules never become handy for creating sentence structure or in speaking.

The tragedy is that you can’t ingrain English skills through these ‘usual’ methods. As in the case of the proficient driver, English don’t become second nature to you so that you handle all types of tasks in Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking.

Like the novice driver, you will start pressing wrong levers at your dire moment of need.

2. They provide lists of vocabulary, idioms and phrases, phrasal verbs etc. These isolated, disconnected lists never get associated with our brain cells and impossible to retrieve at the dire moment of need.

3. They jump into IELTS style practice questions without building the required foundation. Then the frustrating blame game starts.

In reading test, candidates get lost in the reading matter. They fail to understand where to look for answers as they miss the connection and relationships.

In writing test, candidates fail to write with coherence, cohesion, right vocabulary and sentence structure. They search for words to build relationships and logically divide the idea into paragraphs.

In speaking test, candidates fail to understand the real meaning of the question quickly. They fail to formulate answers based on cue-cards. They fail to form right responses with variety of grammar rules.

For details, please visit the respective drop down menus “Learn from Others’ Mistakes” in Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking.

3. SpeakEnglishGym provides maximum opportunity to speak so that candidates develop the superior ability of spontaneity - to form quick ideas, formulate sentences and excellent articulation.

4. SpeakEnglishGym builds crucial skills through a theme the candidate is passionate about. It ensures faster leaning, longer retention and quicker recall of listening, reading, writing and speaking skills.

5. SpeakEnglishGym provides over 300 interactive tests that builds the fundamentals of Reading, Writing, and Listening. It takes care of Grammar, Prepositions, Collocations Repetition, Singular/Plural tenses, countable/uncountable nouns etc besides all common errors.
