United States Of America

USA is one of the top most destinations students prefer for studying abroad. The fact is you don’t study in country, you rather you study in the state. Choosing a country to study abroad is lot more easier than choosing a state of the country, especially when it is USA. USA has 50 states with Washington DC being its capital. The most interesting thing about USA is that all the states have a distinct regional identity.

Although most people recognize USA with wall street or Walt-Mart or Google, it actually also has places with open spaces. It comes with its own diversity and when you choose a state it is better to choose the one which fits you perfectly. So, how do you know which state to study in and which one doesn’t fits you well. what are the places to visit and what are those that can be avoided. What makes the place unique and what are the similarities. Well, there are fifty states and we cannot tell you about all of them in just one post. So, if you are interested in knowing more about the states of USA and figure out which one is the best for you, just click on the United States Of America tab and choose the state you wish to know about or USA in general.

Always bear in mind, there are people who will give you advice, tell you what is right and wrong, and those people are not wrong, but you should always listen to your heart. Because no matter anyone knows it or not, your heart already knows what you want in life.


Relax Effectively While Preparing

You need not to prepare for IELTS consciously every time. It is not like winning a world war, wherein you need to be attentive 24/7. No. It is a little difficult exam, especially for the non-native speakers, but then all IELTS checks is whether you know English or not.

Does that mean you should relax 15 hours a day and then study four hours a day? It depends on your level of English proficiency. When I say relax, I mean relax effectively.

What do you do when you are tired of studying for IELTS? Take a walk? Or go to you tube and watch some videos. Instead of wasting your time in some videos that have nothing to do with IELTS or calling people whom you talk in your native language. There is a better option to relax.

Listen to English songs. You may say they contain slangs. Yes they do. What then? Listen to old English songs. It could be The Beatles. Learn their lyrics and try to sing them the way you sing your native songs.
This way you may be able to relax while still continuing with your preparation of IELTS.

You need to give it your all, to get something out of it. You actually need to breathe IELTS to get a good score. Remember, more the sweat shed in practice, less is the bloodshed in war.

Prepare For Speaking Without Help

IELTS has a speaking section. So how do you prepare for this section?While some have the opportunity to go to a coaching center, what about others.I say prepare for speaking without help. While doing this some of you may be lucky to have people who talk in English with you 24/7. There are some who find it difficult to have a partner to talk to. What should you do? You can aim two things with the same stroke.

  1. Download speeches of people who are admired for their speaking skills. Listen to their speeches. But then just don’t listen. Often the transcripts of the speech are available in Internet. Download them as well and try to speak with them. Try to speak like them. Don’t just blindly follow them, but you can surely grasp those essentials of speaking.
  2. Also bear it in mind that the speech that you use, is of a person who is admired for his / her speaking capabilities. It could be Hitler or Obama or Ruth Levine.
    This will include lot of pausing and rewinding and forwarding. But in the end you will surely improve your listening as well as speaking skills.

Remember it is not just about cramming the syllabus. You need to prove that you deserve it.
