The joy of any teacher is to give enough guidance and knowledge to their students, eventually seeing them graduate and move on. When we heard Vikram’s PTE story, where he started as well as where he finished, we wanted to share it because it shows how far hard work and a little help can get you if you put your mind to the grind!
Vikram is from New Delhi, India. He has a Master’s degree in Engineering and needed to take the PTE exam in order to immigrate to Australia. Vikram needed a 79+ score to meet his visa requirements.
Vikram works for a multinational company and found himself living in Korea. However, while living in a non-English speaking country, Vikram could feel his grasp of English slipping.
Although he hadn’t specifically sought out English tuition services previously, Vikram rated his proficiency level around a 6/10.
The first attempt
Vikram’s first attempt at PTE did not end well. He wasn’t satisfied with his score and he found the speaking section particularly difficult, describing the experience as “nightmarish”!
Vikram’s 1st Attempt in July 2018 resulted in the following scores:
- Listening: 73
- Reading: 79
- Speaking: 57
- Writing: 78
Upon signing up to the Bronze plan, he found E2’s one-to-one tutorials were a great resource. He mentions E2 expert, John, as a valuable provider of advice and guidance, especially when it came to the speaking elements of his preparation. Vikram also found E2’s live classes extremely helpful. These lessons vastly improved his pronunciation skills, helping him overcome some of the mistakes that resulted in his initial score.
The Final Attempt
However, after signing up to E2Language’s Bronze Plan Vikram made significant improvements! His 2nd attempt in October 2018 (a mere three months later) resulted in the following fantastic scores:
- Listening: 84
- Reading: 84
- Speaking: 90
- Writing: 86
Hooray! Vikram’s PTE story has a happy ending! Not only did Vikram achieve 79+ in all four categories but on top of that, the speaking section, which had posed the greatest challenge became his strongest suit! From 57 in the speaking section to 90 and all in three months, bravo!
Of course, the credit must go to Vikram. A hardworking student who has the ambition to better themselves will always succeed. With a busy professional life and living in a foreign country, he noticed his English abilities were deteriorating and wanted to do something about it! But with an already busy schedule, Vikram himself says it was the flexibility of E2’s online platform which made the biggest difference!
A frequent traveler and a working professional, someone like Vikram simply does not have the time to study in a traditional classroom environment. And whilst E2Language is an online platform, this didn’t mean Vikram had to miss out on any student-teacher interaction. Through E2’s one-to-one tutorials and live classes, Vikram was still able to engage meaningfully and effectively with E2’s course material and teachers.
We love hearing about our students experiences and hope to recreate Vikram’s PTE story with all of our students!
