    Although I do want to reserve my testimonials later after I finish reading the whole book, I just cannot help expressing my gratitude towards the author. I just only read a few pages but I feel that the book has answered many questions I have had over the past years. So every time I finish a page, I say wholeheartedly to the book, “Thank you, Pauline!”

    I took IELTS last year and got 8.5 overall with 7.5 in the writing section. I had already read Pauline Cullen’s “The Key to IELTS Success” book before the test which helped me to get that score from my first attempt. Since she announced she was writing a course for IELTS writing as well, I waited impatiently for it. I bought this course to get an insight into the IELTS writing from “insider’s” point of view. I started the course yesterday and I am already enjoying it. I teach IELTS and we all know that the writing paper is the most challenging part not only for students but also for us, the instructors. There are tons of writing books on the internet today. However, what makes this course material different from others is you start understanding what exactly examiners are looking for in your essay. It would help you to eliminate all the confusions and myths about IELTS writing that you’ve heard on YouTube or other social media. In short, it is an extremely useful material for those who would like to hone their writing skills. Thank you, Ms Cullen.

      Thank you, Asrorbek, I really wanted to help teachers as well as self-study students, so I’m really pleased that you found it useful so far.

    I’ve been waiting for this course for a long time. The course is written by an author who does not claim to have a magic formula for success. Instead, she identifies the core problems and guides you step by step to solve those problems so you can develop your skills. Furthermore, her writing style is fun. You will remember her witty language and great metaphors long after you get the IELTS score you aim for. Do not waste your time looking for shortcuts on the Internet – there isn’t any. Get this book now and start learning.
    I have a question: Will this book be available on iTunes?

    • Pauline (verified owner)

      Hi Amir, I am so pleased you enjoy the book. I am hoping to publish on Apple book too very soon.

    Oh my, I am in Lesson 9 and going through the essay planner. This is my first time learning how to write. It’s liberating to be able to think and brainstorm my responses. It’s like my dam of ideas are opened and is firing in all directions. But with the structure as a guide (amazing planner), it’s steering me to focus at the right path. It feels so good knowing that I can finally answer with confidence the writing test in August.
    Oh, you are genius, Pauline! This book just reflects how amazing you are as a writer and teacher.
    Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.

    When an expert shows you how to think and plan every step of the writing process,is like having a tutor right in front of me explaining in clear and logical steps. Excellent book.

    Thank you, Pauline.
