Hi there. Every Friday, I post full lessons here that will help you to prepare for IELTS! You can hit that link and subscribe if you want to get the best practice materials each week.
I will also post some of my recent lessons here for you, in case you missed them:
A Lesson on Capitalisation
You may or may not know that capitalisation is really important when it comes to writing in English. Whilst you can write your reading and listening answers in either upper or lower case, the IELTS writing test must be done in standard form. This is essential!
In this lesson, I will tell you everything you need to know. Does that sound too easy for you? Well, I bet there are a few surprises! Jump ahead through the chapters to find the more difficult parts. There are some rules that would be complicated even for native speakers!
Coherence and Cohesion
The most difficult part of the writing test to understand is Coherence and Cohesion. In fact, according to research, even IELTS examiners don’t always understand it! 😵 Yup, that’s true, and in this video I will explain everything you need to know. It’s a really complicated topic so let’s label this one advanced. If you can understand every part of this video, you’ll be in great shape for your IELTS test.
Oh, and I converted this one to a written article because I thought it was so important.
BIG Mistakes for Task 1
What are the biggest mistakes you could make in IELTS writing task one? Well, I have a lot of experience marking these essays, so I’ve compiled a short list of all the main problems that people face. Thankfully, I’ve also given some explanations and suggestions. It wouldn’t be very useful otherwise, would it? 😉
The Hardest IELTS Writing Question?
It is probably impossible to say what the hardest IELTS question is, but I have found one that almost everyone fails to understand! Yes, it’s true. This is a super difficult question. Watch this video and see if you can get it right. I’ll be very impressed if you can because 90% of my students did not understand it when they first tried.
A Tricky Grammar Point
When I’m marking essays for IELTS students, I often have to say, “This is a subordinating conjunction, not a conjunctive adverb!” But what does that mean? Well, most native speakers wouldn’t know either, so don’t worry! It’s actually not a very difficult thing to understand, so in this short video I’ll explain everything for you.
Oh, and I turned this one into an article too!
All About Lexical Resource
Do you know what Lexical Resource means? Well, it’s a little more complicated than just “vocabulary.” By that, I mean you shouldn’t just try to use big words or study long lists in order to get a high score. Instead, watch this video and get an amazing understanding of it!
