Every month that school or institution remains a partner, you generate a $50 USD commission - and you don't need to do anything! You earn $50 USD per month for each subdomain partner that signs up with us, so you can generate passive income with very little work! Find out more here

Remember that the key to improving your score in IELTS is spending time reviewing your answers once you have finished the test, looking for areas you need to improve on. In this free IELTS preparation course, there are lessons and exercises on all 9 of the question types used in the IELTS test, as well as some techniques on how to improve your reading for IELTS, so if you are not reaching the score you need then spend some time working through those pages.
