Online IELTS coaching in Kerala – An emerging field
Online IELTS coaching in Kerala has evolved greatly in recent years in Kerala with numerous coaching centres offering their services to candidates preparing to take the IELTS test.
While prior to the covid pandemic, online coaching was limited to a few students, since the pandemic, an increasing number of candidates are preferring online coaching on account of the advantages it has to offer.
The biggest plus point would be that one can access training in the comfort of their homes and secondly, save the time otherwise spent on travelling to the coaching centre.
However, online IELTS coaching in Kerala can survive only if the training provided is effective and here, the role of the trainer is the key factor.
There is an old saying which goes like a thousand hours spent studying cannot match an hour spent with a teacher.
There is a great deal of truth in that. A student may work hard and prepare himself, but unless he is regularly tested by a teacher, they cannot be sure they are doing it right.
And also, working smart and working hard is more important.
A teacher who is providing online IELTS coaching in Kerala has to keep this in mind.
Also, trainers require training themselves. It may sound a cliché when I say a trainer or teacher cannot be good at their job unless they themselves are good students.
But it is the truth. IDP IELTS is providing frequent ‘Train the trainer programmes’ to sharpen the skills of trainers who provide online IELTS coaching in Kerala.
It is not surprising that numerous people have entered the field to provide online IELTS coaching in Kerala.
For instance, starting a centre where students come physically to attend classes will require huge investments in renting a building, and buying furniture in addition to running costs.
The costs go up if the centre is opened in a city like Kochi or Trivandrum.
By comparison, providing online IELTS coaching in Kerala will cost only a fraction of the cost of starting bricks and mortar coaching centre.
Obviously, this has drawn in a number of people, especially those with a passion for teaching. In a way, it has benefitted those candidates who are looking for online IELTS coaching in Kerala.
However, choosing the right institute would be crucial for any candidate interested in online IELTS coaching in Kerala.
Ideally, a trainer should understand the soul of IELTS. It is different from the usual English tests in India since it is a test conducted by Cambridge university.
In normal language tests, one can impress the examiner if one uses some impressive vocabulary and write long essays in the writing test. However, this will not fetch you marks in the IELTS text.
Similarly, in the speaking test, the examiner checks and marks the candidate on four criteria.
All this means, if you are planning to take online IELTS coaching in Kerala, you should carefully choose a trainer who is well aware of what the examiner is looking for.
