Meet Abdusshakur from Kano


I’m Abdusshakur, I’m from Nigeria. I live in Kano and I’m currently an intern. I graduated from Usmanu Danfodiyo University in Sokoto.

Why did you take IELTS and how did you prepare for it?

I took the IELTS which is a prerequisite to sitting for PLAB 1.

What is your number one tip for learning and practising English?

I prepared for it by watching tutorial videos, read some textbooks and then I practised using Cambridge practice tests. One thing that helped me for sure, in passing my IELTS was the rigorous practice I indulged myself in.

Why you would recommend IELTS to friends and family?

I’ll recommend IELTS to not only my friends and family, but to anyone out there who wants to take an English exam as a test of proficiency because it’s the most standard exam I’ve ever written so far.
