Julian Zheng’s Testimonial

It is time to say goodbye to Julian Zheng, who took private lessons with our Academic Manager and ECA English teacher Penny, in preparation for his IELTS exam.

On his last day Julian surprised us with a thank you cake, and provided us with this thoughtful testimonial, please enjoy!

“Penny enabled me to achieve Band 8 in my very first IELTS exam. Throughout my journey of IELTS preparation, Penny had been an outstanding English teacher and a sounding board.

It was my great pleasure working with Penny to develop a clear improvement plan towards my desire IELTS score. She marked every practice exam and writing paper thoroughly and provided me with clear and honest feedback. The feedback also came in the form of example essays she thoughtfully produced that furthered my understanding of examiner’s expectation and how my essays could be better written. Furthermore, Penny is always cheerful and encouraging; Shes made my IELTS journey a enjoyable and rewarding one. All these had allowed me to rapidly improve my English and exam skills. As a result, I boosted my scores across all IELTS components and received the band scores I needed in one attempt.

Base on the above, I have no hesitation to recommend Penny and the English College of Adelaide. I am also confident that anyone would feel very lucky to have Penny as their English teacher or IELTS coach.”


All the best Julian, and thank you for the cake! ♥
