Before the Test
Copy Well-Written Passages
Copy well-written passages onto paper.
As you copy, concentrate on the sentence structure.
With each attempt, try to remember groups of words in natural phrases.
Gradually increase the number of words and then check that you have copied accurately.
Clean Up Your Tenses
Practice your tenses. Know your tenses inside out, back to front, and upside down!
If you are uncertain about which tenses and structures you need to use to achieve your desired band, take a class with us. We offer IELTS General Online Coaching, onsite IELTS General Preparation classes, and a full series of English as a Second Language Courses.
You may only need one class to familiarize yourself with the requirements for the level you are trying to achieve.
Read and Listen to Current Affairs
Read about current affairs programs to familiarize yourself with phrases and vocabulary.
Reading about current affairs will give you a range of ideas to write about
During the Test
Do Not Rewrite The Question
Do not rewrite the question.
You can paraphrase the question in your introduction so that your reader knows what the essay is about.
You do not need a title for the writing tasks in IELTS General.
Use Your Structures
You must use the structures and tenses that belong to the level you need to achieve.
You cannot score 9 if you only use level 5 structures!
Do Not Double Space
Separate paragraphs with either a blank line or an indentation. Do not use both, and do not double space.
Correct Errors With a Line
