Overall Band Score 8.0!

by kai on 25/06/2005



Yeah! As some of you might know, I was studying English with Wall Street Institute in Germany during the last months to improve my English. For several reasons I decided to take the IELTS exam recently (International English Language Testing System) – you never know what you might need it for ;-))

Today I got my Test Report Form and …drumsticks… got an Overall Band Score of 8.0 (out of 9.0) that breaks down to “Very good user”.

The detailed scores are Listening 8.5, Reading 9.0, Writing 7.0 and Speaking 7.0 (7 ist “Good user” and 9 means “Expert user”). Cool, cool, cool, this is a major step for me!

Finally, the necessary preparation for the test and some other things to do have been the reasons that stopped me from blogging during the last weeks. There is some more to come, back to regular blogging will not happen until 25th of July… maybe some quick aside posts (for example next week during CFUNITED…)
