Australia Network: Study English IELTS Preparation

It's been awhile since my last post on IELTS topic. Today, I will introduce a free but good resource for IELTS preparation. It's called Australia Network (Learning English). 

australianetwork.com


As the name may state it well, this is one of useful programs from Australia. 

Australia Accent: 
In English, it's very important to be able to understand and communicate with native speakers regardless of their accents. Particularly in my own situation, I had learned with British accent during my years at school. After graduating, I worked in the environment using English with American accent. Now, I'm living in Canada where most of people speak with American accent. My accent eventually  resembles American accent. All of those explain that I was completely an alien to Australian accent before starting this program. 

From very first times study with this program, I found myself lost sometimes. Therefore, I actually spent some days watching Youtube videos as well as googling around to help myself grab the basic features which make Australian accent stand out from others. Honestly, I still haven't had any rule that I can write down to distinguish well between Australian and British accents yet. However, I've got something else. My ears now can "feel" the differences. I think that result is pretty enough for me now. That means three episodes of this crash course did return me some bonus.  

Good content:
Beside the accent matter, in my personal opinion, I think this is one of the most useful program to review and step up to IELTS test. A lot of basic language points were presented and explained thoroughly. Regardless of your English level, you will always find benefits from this program. I had reviewed a lot on pronunciation, intonation, IELTS test format, collocation, coherence, cohesion, grammar, filers, prepositions for adjective, nouns from adjectives, negative forms of words, word friends, etc. 

Free resource:
Last but not least, this program is completely free. Yes, free and good, why don't you give it a try?

How to use it:
To start studying, it's very easy, just follow this guideline
  • access the program here http://australianetwork.com/studyenglish/
  • look at the right panel, you will see Series 1, Series 2 and Series 3
  • just click on each series to go to its lesson list
  • click on each lesson in the list and start studying (just around 10 minutes for each)
  • do the quiz at the end of the lesson

Have fun with English studying!
