Hello. I’d like to welcome you to my IELTS and English website (and I’ve even included some relaxing ‘thinking’ music to help you think better [just click above]). Thinking is important. Thinking people are better speakers, better writers, and just … better. This is a theme I give in all my classes. But who am I?
I call myself simply ‘Teacher Andrew’, but if you want my full name, you can see it on my seven IELTS books, shown at the top of this page. Count the books. That’s SEVEN of them!
You can also see me, myself, below, giving an IELTS presentation at IDP.
你好, 我的名字叫安德魯, 歡迎光臨我的雅思英文網站

As for this website you are looking at, you can know more about me by clicking ‘About Me’. Right now, I can tell you that I’ve worked for many years in Taiwan, and in that time actually helped establish many other IELTS preparation schools here in Taipei.
你可以在這個網站的 ‘關於我’ 對我有更深入的了解, 這裡我可以簡單的告訴你, 我已經在台灣工作很多年, 而且在台北幫助成立過很多雅思補習班
The seven IELTS books I have written, and the way I teach, all show ‘my system’. This is a system developed over 25 years of teaching IELTS Preparation Courses, and it produces good results; and many schools, websites, and self-proclaimed experts are now using these ideas of mine. I even heard someone explaining some of them on the radio as if they were their own!
我是[雅思實用策略]系列書的作者, 而且我用我的系統教所有的雅思技巧, 這個系統是我花了二十幾年
的時間研發出來的, 成效卓越, 現在很多補習班, 網站和所謂的名師都使用我的系統, 我甚至曾在收音機上聽到過
I could feel flattered by this; however, the advice, information, and approach, is often misunderstood, misapplied, misused, and overused – and that’s the problem. So please, explore this website, and explore the true way to use my ideas, given by its actual author, in the way that will truly help you in English and the IELTS test.
我覺得受寵若驚, 但是我的建議, 資料和方法常被誤解和誤用, 所以請你用心探索我的網站, 找出用我的系統的正確方式, 如此一來這個系統定能幫助你學好英文而且拿到雅思高分
One final word. Notice that this ‘welcome message’ is in English (with a little Chinese to guide you) (as are my IELTS books). Yes, if you want to achieve well in an English language test, you need to begin practising reading English for real. A preparation source written mostly in Chinese is immediately dubious. Now, look up ‘dubious’ in your dictionary, or click here (taking you to the Vocabulary Section: ‘Less-Common Words, Item 8) – and by doing this you have learnt a word – a very good and useful word for the IELTS test.
結語: 你注意到我的 ‘歡迎訊息’ 是用英文寫的(就和我的雅思系列書一樣), 是的, 如果你想在任何英語測驗中拿到好成績, 你就必須練習閱讀英文, 看中譯的語言學習書是不可能將語言學好的, 現在請打開你的字典查 ‘dubious’ 或按這裡…
There, that’s the beginning. You have learnt something – through my help and this website, because this website is in English.
Now KEEP GOING! As I say at the start of all my IELTS books, ‘This is how you ‘pass’ the IELTS test.
So, let us then begin together on this road.’
You could begin by exploring the pixnet. There’s a guide to this below.
Click this link: andrewloveielts.pixnet.net…..
… for a MOUNTAIN of IELTS-related material, to help you keep travelling on that road. The blog has three main sorts of entries, as shown below. Click on these titles to go directly to the specific site.
Many of my students get high IELTS scores. A few of them are kind enough to share this news, with recommendations and suggestions, on PTT. When this happens, we copy it from PTT onto our pixnet as a post. These posts are all written in Chinese, so you can easily read what other students have said about me, about IELTS, and about preparing for it. If you want real and honest feedback, you must read these.
This contains articles and advice (written in Chinese) on the IELTS test, English-language learning, and being an intelligent consumer. If you really want a foundation to an IELTS 7, you must read these.
The Language Learning Posts generally look at grammar, collocation, and concision, by presenting easily-read posts with exercises and answers in a series of defined length e.g. (1 of 16).
The Consumer Advice Posts help you become someone who will not be tricked, and who knows what good language teaching should be like.
If you really want an IELTS 7, you must read these. Click Guide to Language Learning & Consumer Advice Posts for easy access to some of these third sorts of posts. [This link is also on the main menu at the top of this page.]
