Today we are going to do an experiment to create a culture of thinking so that you can get that 7 on your IELTS Exam!

We will look at a NY Times Sunday edition and we’ll pick out some articles to find out how we could bring in those topics on IELTS test day.

Article #1: The Frugal Traveler: High End Paris for 1/10th the Price

Reading this article could help you in many ways on the IELTS Exam. You could highlight it as a trend or you could discuss it if you get any speaking questions on travel. This would also help you on the Listening test. You may hear a conversation between two people taking a trip. You’ll get the vocabulary that you need. It will help you build your brain box on the topic of travel.

Article #2: Discovering Ara-Yaki, a Japanese Dish

This article would help you on the Speaking test if you got a question about food.

Article #3: Listen! The Ethicist’s Weekly Podcast

This is a Q and A article. People write in and email in questions. How could this article help you on the IELTS? On the Speaking test or Writing test it would be great to be able to refer to this podcast and some of the ideas in it.

These articles are just a few examples but you need to remember that we want to create a “culture of thinking” in our own minds where ideas are always coming in and going out.

New concepts are always bubbling in our mind and we will never go blank on the Speaking test.

Get started by subscribing to the NY Times today or subscribe to a few podcasts.
