Ringle will help you prepare
for standardized English tests
if your scores aren't improving
with simple memorization
and pre-existing study methods
About 10-15% of our customers are preparing for English tests, such as TOEFL and IELTS.
Most of them previously studied at tutoring centers that use memorization as main study method, but their scores weren't improving beyond certain level.
Their scores remained at around 21-25 in TOEFL speaking and around 3-5 in IELTS speaking.
However, if your scores are less than 19 in TOEFL speaking or less than 3 in IELTS, or if you have never taken an English class before, we recommend you to take basic courses in offline language tutoring centers.
Ringle doesn't encourage studying language through memorization. Our customers improve their English by practicing speaking and writing with their tutors.
"According to our veteran tutors who have conducted numerous lessons at Ringle, memorizing a script isn't necessarily a flawed method. However, their students tend to make unconscious mistakes while using a script to express their ideas, such as tenses, articles, prepositions, singular and plural nouns. Those mistakes decrease their scores."
As per our customers, they were able to improve their scores by speaking with a native tutor instead of memorizing scripts. Their tutors corrected their English and pointed out any repetitive mistakes, which led them to increase their speaking/writing scores by about 1-2 points in a short amount of time.
Customers preparing for English tests use the Free Topic format, which allows them to upload their own materials.
1) Select 4-5 prompts that may appear on the speaking test you're preparing for.
2) Let your tutor ask the questions to you and answer them during your lesson
3) Receive real-time feedbacks and corrections on your answers
4) Practice answering again, with corrections
5) Complete your own script to the question
In this process, many of our customers said that they found the script useful, because their tutors have helped them to write a script that is easier to pronounce.
Also, their English improved in the course of constant corrections (ex. mistakes with a, an, the, singular and plural, tenses, etc.), increasing their test scores by at least 1-2 points.
Our customers who are preparing for an English writing test use Free Topic(Writing Focused) format, which allows them to upload their own materials.
Before the lesson, they write a 300-400 word piece on a prompt and get edits from their tutors.
Ringle's native tutors read their writings, make corrections, and explain to them about what needs to be changed. This process is also visible on screen.
Many customers have commented that they have learned useful expressions for the tests.
