Today you’ll learn what magazines you should read before your IELTS Exam.

A student in our course, 3 Keys IELTS, recently posted in our closed Facebook group:

I am in the Reading Module right now, and I was wondering if you could recommend some good magazines to practice reading.

She is working through our study plan, and came to the day when it was recommended to read a magazine.

But, what magazines will help you prepare for IELTS?


This is a women’s fitness magazine, featuring articles on nutrition, exercise and psychology.

These are all topics on the exam!

This is where you will learn invaluable vocabulary, as well as get ideas for Speaking and Writing.

On all parts of the Speaking test, as well as Writing Task 2, health comes up a lot.

If you are looking for a men’s magazine, look for Men’s Health.

Local magazines

All major cities in English-speaking countries will have local city magazines.

You should look for one online from the city you want to live in after IELTS.

National Geographic

This publication has stunning photographs, and the articles are incredible.

The level of writing is extremely high, and the breadth of topics is huge.

You will get so many IELTS ideas for culture, travel, nature, and many more topics that come up in Speaking and Writing.


This, of course, is a fashion magazine, but not an average one!

The articles, however, are award-winning, and they’re not just about fashion. You can read about culture, history and psychology.


We talked about this in a previous episode as well!

Look for the special editions.
