About Course

Very few people like exams. Because exams make people nervous and uncomfortable. IELTS is no different for many people, and that even turns out to be a problem. There are many parts of IELTS that can be intimidating unless you know how to handle them.  People are afraid of the unknown, and the solution is to get familiar with all the “scary” aspects of the IELTS exam. Take the element of surprise out of IELTS and these fears will fade away. Whether you’re writing for the Academic or General Test or on Task 1 or Task 2. Make sure you understand exactly what you are asked to do.

Many people struggle with the IELTS exam preparation, it’s well-known for being tough, and will test anyone’s language abilities to the limit. For a lot of people, the writing part of the test can be the most stressful, but don’t worry, after completing this course you will know every detail of it.

Take a look at some of my insights and advice, and I am sure you will ace the IELTS writing test. IELTS writing does not need to be long, although you do need to aim for the required word count.  Task 2 essays need only two strong body paragraphs, although three is certainly a plus if you manage it. You score points for using complex sentence structure and strong vocabulary accurately and naturally. Rather than worrying about the length of your essay, take the time to include interesting vocabulary and avoid repeating words. As you prepare for the IELTS exam, you should be working to build your vocabulary for a variety of topics.

In addition, you may want to group synonyms or related words together on flashcards. This will help you think of synonyms to use while writing. Also, make sure you are familiar with and comfortable using cohesive words and phrases naturally. Again, avoid repeating the same cohesive devices. You will impress the reader by presenting clear, concise, and cohesive arguments, so this should be your focus while writing.

Enjoy the course and wish you a happy journey to your language proficiency.
