Remaining days 74 days
My name is Jon Predianto Sihotang, I live in Pekanbaru, Riau Province, Indonesia. I posses bachelor degree on Business Administration. I am currently working as a Marketing Freelancer a private non formal school.
I have been following this site for a while and witnessing many people get helped financially to reach their dreams.
I am an eager learner believing that education is the best way to create the best quality of life and also optimistic person on drudge work.
In doing something, I prioritize perseverance regardless how hard it is and always give the best I can do even though the result is not as good as I expect. At least, I try and fail, I quickly learn and know my capability and give the best try if I have to work on the same case next time.
I realize English becomes a main need to elevate my future career. Since English is obligatory requirement to have job or pursuing higher education in foreign countries.
I feel that I am at the tail of this competitive circumstance and it means that I must sharpen my English skill to the next level. I need to be more than what I am now. This sentence always streams in my brain day and day.
My goal to learn English is that I want to be a qualified person in many aspects such as jobs in international fields, academic and qualified to train and teach English.
To be proficient and have English proficiency by IELTS have been on my dream since many success stories I read and told to me. IELTS is a kind of English proficiency assessment; and its test is organized by Cambridge English Language Assessment together with British Council and IDP partnering with many colleges and other educational institution in Indonesia.
In Indonesia itself, many institutions offer IELTS training and its test preparation. I have reviewed one of the best institutions called Kampung Inggris located in East Java, Indonesia (please kindly go to https://www.kampung-inggris.com/).
According to the alumni that have been spread throughout the world, Kampung Inggris dedicate itself to really teach and help student improve student’s skill facing the IELTS test. Their success stories make me impressed and want to be one of those academic societies.
The training program runs in 2 months with IELTS lesson materials and latest learning methods. Student also will be trained and taught by experienced tutors from Indonesia and sometimes they have volunteer teachers from abroad. I target band 7 for IELTS official test on scale 1 to 9. I think it’s possible as long as persistence follows.
Aside from my strong intention, I really can’t afford the tuition fee. But, I still work on collecting fund to support me to start this journey even if I don’t earn that much as my salary can’t really help.
In total, during 60 days training, I will need money as of $1,370 USD divided into some expenses i.e:
Course fee $310 USD, flight ticket (2 ways from and to Pekanbaru – East Java) $400 USD, accommodation (housing, laundry, internet and books) $200 USD, daily cheap meal $180 USD, and the official IELTS Test fee (one time) $280 USD.
After finishing this program (hopefully I will earn IELTS band 7), I will apply for an English Trainer at one of English institution in Kampung Inggris area to transfer my knowledge and skill to new student and earn some money before really applying for a master degree abroad or pursuing English international trainer certification in Virginia, USA held by TESOL International Asscociation.
I also have a big dream to establish a vocational school instructed in English. I hope this dream can be implemented in 5 or 10 years from now. But overall, I have to be capable and professional educator to walk on this dream.
Finally, I come to this site to share stories with you while hoping your help. Because I am sure many people out there will willing to help forward thinking people.
With my pleasure, I set this campaign until May 1, 2020. I really hope with this $1,370 USD, I could make a good start in my life.

Thank you for your philanthropy.
Jon Predianto Sihotang.
