Reasons to Choose IELTS Preparation with New Cambridge

New Cambridge Institute (Thailand) employs the teaching technique used in England known as “Learner Autonomy,” placing learners at the center of their learning experience. This approach ensures that learners continually improve their English language skills, unlike the traditional Thai teaching method where teachers often provide all the information. As a result, language proficiency tends to decline over time after completing the course, and true learning and self-development may not occur.

The secret to studying IELTS is that learners should review and practice outside the classroom. New Cambridge Institute provides a Self Access Centre along with the OTP (Online Tips & Practice) system and additional supplementary classes, designed to be enjoyable, such as the Speaking Club, Writing Club, and intensive pre-exam Bonus Tutorial. These supplementary services help learners enjoy the learning process and achieve lasting improvement, leading to target IELTS scores quickly.

We don't solely teach "test-focused" methods, but rather focus on making learners "permanently proficient."

1. Test-Focused Teaching:

– Targeted topics, high-scoring question-answering techniques, and tried-and-true tips.

– Emphasis on strategies and practice with past exam questions.

– This approach often leads to achieving the same or slightly improved scores, possibly increasing by just 0.5 band. For example, a learner capable of a real band 6 might achieve only 6 or 6.5 with this method, while not studying for the exam might result in a score of only 5 or 5.5 due to a lack of test-taking techniques or an understanding of the exam format.

The drawback is that a learner might achieve a 6.5 score but encounter language-related challenges when studying abroad, as the 6.5 might not reflect true language proficiency (emphasizing test-taking techniques only).

2. Permanently Proficient Approach: Elevating Proficiency in All Four Skills

– For instance, a learner with a true band 6 proficiency level, when studying at New Cambridge using the “test-focused and permanently proficient” approach of Learner Autonomy, could potentially elevate their proficiency in all four skills—listening, speaking, reading, and writing—to achieve a band 7 or even higher within a short period.

The advantage is that learners experience genuine language proficiency improvement, allowing them to effectively communicate with foreign instructors and classmates. This enhances the value of the investment made in pursuing a postgraduate degree abroad.

Taught by Native Speaker Instructors 100%

Every student learns from native speaker instructors who have over 10 years of experience teaching IELTS extensively. In the IELTS exam, students must undergo face-to-face speaking and listening assessments with native speaker instructors. Therefore, learning with native speaker instructors is the best way to prepare. It not only helps with speaking and listening skills but also aids in cultural adaptation. Some people who are not proficient in English may feel apprehensive about learning with a foreign instructor, fearing difficulty in understanding or wasting time. However, the truth is, if given the chance, it’s best to start learning with native speaker instructors. This is because it opens up the listening and speaking system in the most natural and effective manner. Learners might make mistakes or misunderstand initially, but they will automatically adjust themselves. Additionally, studying with classmates who are linguistically close in proficiency will prevent embarrassment, making learning enjoyable and progressing together.

Advantages of Learning with Native Speaker Instructors:

1. Language

  • Native speaker instructors have a deep understanding of the English language as they have been using it since birth.
  • They naturally pronounce English words correctly, such as tone, stress, rhythm, and sentence intonation.
  • They use proper English grammar and idiomatic expressions, such as using nouns, word combinations, and appropriate vocabulary for various occasions.

2. Culture:

  • Native speaker instructors use proper body language while speaking, including facial expressions and emotions.
  • They have teaching methods that make learning enjoyable and prevent stress in the classroom.
  • They enable learners to comprehend culture and improve understanding of being abroad.
Enhances writing skills rapidly.

In addition to classroom learning, New Cambridge offers a Self-Access Centre that provides a conducive environment for practicing various skills. We also emphasize the development of writing skills, which can be challenging for Thai learners. Students can further enhance their skills through the Writing Club, which offers diverse writing exercises for practice and improvement. These exercises are evaluated by native speaker instructors who provide feedback, pinpointing core issues and suggesting remedies. They also offer guidance on content improvement and writing style.

“To achieve rapid results in IELTS, you must learn from experienced native speaker instructors.”

  • Understanding the language learning challenges of Thai students,
  • Focusing on techniques and teaching methods that develop individual weaknesses in each area,
  • Teaching in a way that delves into exam details and fosters long-term improvement,
Learning in small focused groups,

New Cambridge places importance on class size, typically accommodating 6-16 students per class or focused group. This ensures that everyone has the opportunity to converse with the instructor throughout, resulting in rapid language development.

Students receive close attention and care from instructors, starting from the beginning until the end. Instructors help analyze individual strengths and weaknesses, and offer guidance for problem-solving. This approach ensures that students achieve their targeted IELTS scores and are equipped with language skills for their future careers.
