The Dumaguete IELTS website.
Welcome to Dumaguete IELTS website. This site is here to try to be the information source for all things IELTS. If you are planning to take the exam with a view to working or studying abroad. The Philippines has a multitude of medical staff, most of all nurses. Furthermore, they are looking at working in their profession in another country. The main requirement for them to be successful in the applications is to pass the IELTS test. A minimum band score of 7 is needed.
I am from the UK and I now live in the Philippines. Namely in the beautiful city of Dumaguete settled in the Region of Negros Oriental in the Visayas.
I started teaching 9 years ago in The Philippines, after being an IT engineer in England for 20+ years. Since I began teaching, most noteworthy, I have taught students from more than 40 countries. I have trained teachers both locally(Filipino), while also being a TEFL lead trainer for 4 week in-house classroom based courses. I turned my attention to IELTS after being exposed to it by a colleague, and taking a test, which I realised was difficult, even for a native speaker and teacher like myself.
Although the IELTS test is difficult, it is more about not only improving one’s English level, but also about learning the techniques needed to ensure success. To achieve a band 7+ is not an easy feat so candidates should be guided in the correct methods, and also be provided with tutoring which will increase their English skills enough to obtain their target score. There are many resources on the site to aid you, including a grammar section.
As this site is new, please bear with me as I add material to the site and try to find the best resources to aid your studies.
Thanks and welcome.
