    BONUS episode! My interview with Dr Heidi Brumbaugh, creator of the Vocab Victor app.

    BONUS episode! My interview with Dr Heidi Brumbaugh, creator of the Vocab Victor app.

    This week I interview the creator of the marvellous Vocab Victor app, Dr Heidi Brumbaugh.

    Dr Heidi realised that my 28-Days of IELTS Word List would be a perfect match for her app, so now you can practise the essential words that you need to learn for IELTS in a fun and motivating way.

    In the interview, we talked about:


    the problems students have when they try to learn intermediate vocabulary (and how Vocab Victor solves this problem)
    how vocabulary is more important than grammar when you're trying to increase your band score
    the best ways to learn vocabulary and retain new words
    the benefits of learning from carefully-chosen word lists
    the importance of reviewing words in different contexts (Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking which are included in every day of my 28-Day IELTS Vocabulary Booster Course and Challenge).

    On top of that, this episode is GREAT listening practice! (Nice to have an American accent for a change!).

    Find out more about Vocab Victor and how it works with my IELTS word lists on Dr Heidi's page:

    Jess actually took the test herself, and in the interview she tells us what she thinks is great about doing the test on a computer.

    IELTS Reading GT Section 1: How synonyms work in Part 1

    GT Reading is not always as easy as it looks in Part 1. Yes, the texts are shorter but you have to do 2 of them in 20 mins and you need a good level of Vocab to get the answers quickly and not fall for the tricks! Here we look at Matching Info and TFNG.

وحيد زارع ,

effective and practical

Well, it is really practical I always follow the episodes as I find it very useful and unique. It will help you to get acquainted with the real challenges of the IELTS exam. In terms of teaching, she is so precise and perfect. So responsible for teaching

Gallatfo ,

Definitely worth the time!!!

A great IELTS preparation podcast for anyone needing band 5 to 7.5 or even 8. The lady, who you get to love overtime by the way, puts as much effort as necessary for you to acquire what you need. Just love it! Awesome!
