Let's listen to Arun - IELTS 7.5 band scorer from KU Education, Jaffna. (2022-08-19)

KU Jaffna has been producing so many successful IELTS test takers for years. The most recent great achiever is S.Arun Kalastan from Mannar. Arun got an Overall 7.5 band score for his IELTS (Academic). KU Education congratulates him on his great achievement. We got 12 students who achieved 6.5 BS within the last 2 months. Generally, most of the students used to take the paper-based IELTS exam. But Arun took the computer-based IELTS exam and is highly vocal about his experience with the computer-based exam after practising paper-based tests in the classroom.

IELTS கற்க ஆரம்பிக்கும் முன் - சில எச்சரிககைக் குறிப்புக்கள்!!!


நாட்டின் தற்போதுள்ள சூழ்நிலையில் வெளிநாட்டிற்கு செல்ல முயல்வோரின் எண்ணிக்கை சடுதியாக அதிகரித்திருப்பதைத் தொடர்ந்து IELTS எனும் இந்தப் பரீட்சைக் கற்பித்தல்-சான்றிதழ் வழங்கல் என்ற வகையில் அப்பாவி மாணவர்கள் பெருந்தொகையில் ஏமாற்றப்பட்டு வருகிறார்கள். பேற்றோர்கள்/மாணவர்கள் பின்வரும் அறிந்து செயற்படல் மிகவும் முக்கிமானதாகும்.

1) பெற்றோர் இந்தப் பாடநெறியைக் கற்பிக்கும் ஆசிரியருடன் நேரடியாக தமது பிள்ளையையையும் கலந்து கொள்ள வைத்து உரையாடி பின்வரும் தகவல்களை அறிந்துகொள்ளவும்.

2) ஆசிரியர் இந்தத்துறையில் எவ்வளவு காலம் அனுபவமுள்ளவர் ? (அண்மையில் படித்து முடித்த அனுபவமற்றவர்களிடம் கற்று உங்கள் பணத்தையும் நேரரத்தையும் வீணடிக்காதீர்)

Looking for Young Entrepreneurs in Sri Lanka.

 The top priority is  creating and supporting new entrepreneurs 




"Effective Teaching Techniques" workshop@Osmania College, Jaffna. 
Conducted by Mr.S.Manimaran

The development of the business sector, particularly nurturing the entrepreneurial mindset among youth is the best way of uplifting the country.  I used to be a small entrepreneur during my university time (Undergraduate) and realized how it had developed my confidence and gave me enough training to standing alone as a person in society. [The cruel face of the civil war had destroyed many of our dreams, and had been putting barriers for every movement in the business.] Past is past.

Now the country is not ready for civil war but fighting a war against hunger.[2020-2022..]

There are numerous business opportunities to take within the country and take beyond the borders. The problem is the mindset of our youth. Blame on our education system. Which has been creating paper-based graduates over decades. Youth seem to have lost their inner – curiosity, hunger for invention, thirsty for knowledge.. all, because of a government job-guaranteed education system. Just become a graduate of any subject, government guarantees a job within a few years from graduation. Most of the crowd dwells in the dream of a government job and doing nothing until then. 

Another major portion of the youth population is running behind fake agencies, low quality private educational qualifications to move to a foreign country expecting a huge wealth generation. A small population goes for some middle east countries to make an earning almost they can make within Sri Lanka.

Creating entrepreneurs, educating them, supporting them is a part of the life mission.

Through our institution (KU Education) we have been offering many free educational programs to induce the hidden talents of youth and help them to identify their capabilities which can be monetized later in their life.

We have been using the following types of a free short courses as a tool to keep in touch with youth and study them.

  • Web designing
  • Digital Photography
  • Digital Videography
  • Digital Media Production
  • S.E.O and Web marketing
  • Communicative English -Level 1,2,3
  • Graphic designing
  • And much more free courses1

Core strategy of scoring 7.0 and above in IELTS




What are the top strategies that you could use in your IELTS test? There are too many strategies being given by many so called IELTS gurus, online.

Many students of mine used to ask me to reveal the shortcuts or secrets to succeed in IELTS. May I use this opportunity to open up the secrets for them 😊

 When you look at your IELTS writing task1 and task2 (AC/GM) your marking criteria would be like this :

1.       Task achievement (25%)
2.       Grammatical accuracy and range (25%)
3.       Coherence and cohesion (25%)
4.       Lexical resources (25%)

When you approach a task, you have to read it, understand it and write well by putting your own ideas. You get unique and fresh tasks each time. Based on the data given on the task, you will have to develop your write-up so you cannot carry anything pre-planned.

IELTS பரீட்சை எப்படியானது ? அதற்கு நீங்கள் தகுதியாவது எப்படி ? (தமிழ் விளக்கம்)



IELTS என்பது வழமையான சாதாரண ஆங்கிலப்பரீட்சை அல்ல என்பதை அதை எடுக்க முன்வரும் மாணவர்கள் அறிந்து கொள்ள வேண்டும். இலங்கை முழுவதும்  பல்லாயிரக்கணக்கான அப்பாவி மாணவர்கள் இந்தப் பரீட்சை பற்றி முறையாக அறியாது - தம் தகுதிகளை அதிகரிக்காது அநியாயமாக  முறையற்ற வழிகாட்டலிற்கும் பரீட்சைக்கும் பெருந்தொகையான பணத்தை இழந்து வருகிறார்கள். பணம் மட்டுமன்றி கற்றலுக்காக அவர்கள் இ‌ழந்த நேரமும் அநியாயமே.

(Want to take IELTS  ? visit this link : http://edu.kugroup.info/ielts.html )

இந்தப்பரீட்சை எடுக்க வேண்டிய நிலையில் இருக்கும் புதியவர்களுக்காக இந்த கட்டுரை வரையப்பட்டுள்ளது. இதை முழுமையாக வாசிப்பதன் மூலம் - உங்கள்  உறுதியான வெற்றிக்கான வழிகளைத் திட்டமிடவும் இந்தப்பரீட்சைக்குரிய தகுதிகளை அதிகரித்துக்கொள்ளவும் முடியும். தேவையற்ற பண ,நேர இழப்புக்களையும் தவிர்க்கலாம்.

IELTS - என்ற  சொல்லை   விளம்பரப்பலகைகளில் கண்டுவிட்டு ஆங்கிலம் சிறப்பான நிலையில் இல்லாதவர்கள் - அல்லது ஆரம்ப நிலையிலுள்ளவர்கள் அந்த பயிற்சி நெறியில் சேர முடிவெடுக்க முடியாது. ஏனெனில்  IELTS  என்பது ஒரு ஆங்கிலக் கல்வி நெறி அல்ல. - ”சர்வதேச ஆங்கில மொழி பரீட்சை முறைமை” என்பதே IELTS என்பதன் விரிவாக்கம்(International English  Language Testing System )

What is Coherence in IELTS Writing Task 2 ? - understanding coherence "Visually"

There are many frequently discussed terms roam in the  mind when we start exploring IELTS . Some terms are little bit tricky to be understood clearly .Coherence and cohesion is one of the four elements assessed  in your IELTS writing task 2 (General and Academic) and widely spoken about, in various IELTS mentoring sites . Let me take "coherence" for this post today.

Coherence


If you want to know in a nut shell ,I would say coherence is "Central point of the paragraph " . You build a paragraph on one main idea and maintain it properly with carefully developed phrases ,words and examples .

For instance , let's see the following task on a "Coherence Map" which is  invented and illustrated by Knowledge Universe for the first time(2016)

TOEFL or IELTS ? What test you should take ?

What  test , you should take for your university admission of migration ? Whether it could be TOEFL or IELTS ? 


Well ,it depends on many factors like the county you opted to go for and the university or educational organization you apply for . IELTS is needed not only for academic people ,as it has two forms of test(Academic and General ) it is required by many English speaking countries for migration purposes too .

TOEFL is mainly required by  American and Canadian universities .If you plan to do your higher studies in one of these countries ,it is better to start learning TOEFL.

Countries like Great Britain (UK) ,Australia always prefer IELTS  for their university admissions and migration  purposes .

If you are not sure  about the type of test  you should take for the country you wish you go ,just visit us and have a free consultation . Please call and get an appointment before make a visit .

IELTS Academic Writing Task 2 Vs. IELTS General Writing Task 2 - what are the differences ?

Most of the General IELTS test takers used ask this question in the classes . Main difference between the AC-Writing task and GT-Writing task is the mode of Task 1 of the both exams .



While you need to think about various types of charts,presented data and technical terms for them to describe the flow of information  given in the Academic Task 1, just  worry about  a handful of formal and informal letter types for  General Module Task 1.

in a nutshell ,Task 1 is  bit more different among the both modules .But task 2 is almost same for both modules .
