Mastering the IELTS

Upcoming seminars will be announced soon


Do your plans for your future career include the experience of studying in a university in the UK, US or other English speaking country? If they do, you will need the language skills to not only survive, but thrive in an English speaking environment; and, importantly, you will need to prove that you have reached this high level in the language.


Rob Russell is a British Council trained former IELTS examiner with many years of experience teaching TOEFL and TOEIC at top level Japanese universities and companies. He also works at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Japan teaching IELTS and preparing its employees for Masters level study in the UK and Australia.
