|You have certainly practised a great deal to prepare for your actual exam. You have also been exposed to a variety of materials, and have familiarised yourself with the format for the IELTS test. This book, therefore, does not aim at loading you with more practice material on IELTS, but it will sum up the main points so as to enable you to work out an effective plan to finally achieve your desired band in the actual test you are taking.|
Day 1 to 5
- Gather information about the IELTS writing. Know how many words you need to write and how many minutes are given.
- Look for writing topics for both the first and the second tasks.
- For the Academic module, it is best to find different materials for graphs such as line, bar, and pie.
- For General Training module, find materials that would require candidates to write a formal, semi-formal and informal tone of letter.
- Know the criteria on how writing essays are evaluated.
Day 6 to 10
- Review on the rules of grammar and punctuation. It is important for essays to be grammatically correct and appropriately punctuated.
- Improve your vocabulary by learning expressions that will show the rise and fall of numbers, changes in the trends and the like. Choose words that will best describe the facts in the graph or diagram.
- Learn how to outline. Outlining makes the writing easier and the flow organized. Create a timetable on schedule of writing practices for the next five days.
Day 11 to 15
- Write at least two sets of writing tasks in a day. Have them checked by someone you are confident who is good at the English language.
- Be open to feedbacks on how you can improve your writing.
