Are you nervous about the IELTS Writing exam? Unsure of what to study or how to prepare?

Perhaps you’ve taken an IELTS preparation class, or worked through and IELTS textbook, and you still don’t feel confident that you can write impressive essays.

Remember that the IELTS essays are unique, and the examiner is looking for very specific things in IELTS Writing Task 1 and IELTS Writing Task 2.

Not to worry! These three ideas will keep you focused and improve your IELTS Writing scores.

As you watch the video, take notes on the strategies.

Then, add these specific strategies to your IELTS study plan.



1. Memorize a template

I’m not telling you to memorize an essay- that, obviously, will get you low scores.

However, you do need to memorize an outline that tells you what linking words to use and where to put your ideas. You need to know where exactly to put your opinion, main ideas, reasons, examples and details.

Don’t let teachers confuse you by asking you to practice and use too many different templates and structures.

You only need to write 4 paragraphs for Task 2. In our course, we tell you exactly what to do and how to do it for both IELTS Writing Task 1 and Task 2.

2. Practice timing

Two weeks before your exam, you must sit down three times a week, for one hour, and practice writing both tasks.

3. Don’t waste time in your brainstorm

The first idea that comes to mind is usually an obvious reason connected to the topic. This is perfect!

Don’t try and think up complicated, impressive ideas for your reasons/examples. These, actually, often decrease your scores, because the resulting communication is confusing and unclear.

When you brainstorm, write down the first reason that comes to mind, and also note down one example with three details.

You only need to brainstorm enough for a paragraph. Don’t waste your time writing too much here.
