What our students say about us
Before I enrolled in the IELTS Academic class in NZIST, I used to get 5.0 on my writing test. However, my writing score jumped to 6.0 within 12 weeks. In fact, I have obtained an overall score with 6.5. Indeed, I am very happy with the way the teacher presented all the techniques and guidelines. Moreover, I was taught a great deal of skills to improve my IELTS score. I was also very pleased with my other results which were 7.5 for Listening, 7 for Speaking and 6 for Reading.
