To succeed in IELTS, you need to realize what is expected of you. This is a test of skills, not your knowledge. You need to show off what you can do! For IELTS preparation, you need to familiarise yourself with the marking criteria; the IELTS test is not easy, but doable!
This is the main reason you are looking through these pages; to find out what you can do to score higher, there are a few files and lessons that you may access below in the downloads section. Every now and again, I try to update these based on new references and feedback from candidates and examination centres.
As mentioned above, the most important factor in language tests, especially IELTS, is to make sure you know what you are expected to do.
You might need guidance to ensure you have fully understood the marking criteria and you have essentially followed the relevant criteria to demonstrate the required skills.
This is where you may need a teacher to reflect on what you have done and to probably help you with your preparation. Should you need support, you know what to do! Book a session and we can have a chat.
Some useful files to help you prepare for the exam. Please feel free to download and share; don't forget to mention where you have got it from!
