    @Krisian Practice po kayo ng vowel sounds, long vowel vs short vowel sounds lalo na po. Usually po satin sa Filipino english hindi masyadong enunciated yung vowel sounds dahil wala pong ganon sa tagalog. Also yung consonants na commonly mispronounced like TH na tunog D, or D na nagiging tunog J.

    For example po dapat may difference pag pinakinggan ka sa: at most vs utmost, sang vs sung, three vs tree, thought vs taught. Yung "induce" minsan po sounds like "in juice" na. When in doubt sa pronunciation ng word, check nyo po yung audio pronunciation nung word sa Merriam Webster na site.

    I took the IELTS GT last month at sobrang time constraint ang review ko, parang 2 weeks lang ata ang total review days ko pero I got the minimum banscore naman which is 6.0 in each subtest (Listening:6.5, Reading:6, Writing:6, Speaking:6.5), enough to proceed with assessment by Engrs. Australia. Waiting na lang ako this month and Gods will positive ang outcome letter para EOI na ako....

    Preparing po ako for the PTE kasi according to the info mas lenient ang scoring niya compared sa IELTS, sana maka 65 in each subtest para makaearn ako ng 10points para sana sa 189. Next option ko na po kasi provided na positive ang assessment letter ko ay 190 and 489 pero para sa 189 susubukan ko ang PTE Acad.

    Thanks po sa info, malaking tulong sa paghahanda ko to para sa ekonomiya ahahahahaha
