What advice does Bruno have for those preparing for IELTS?

He found it extremely helpful when he heard on the IELTS Energy podcast to listen to podcasts and read the transcripts.

He practiced a lot and once test day he came, he knew he was ready.

The strategies from the modules made it very clear what he needed to do.

It became natural to follow the strategies the more he practiced.

How important is reading when preparing for IELTS?

The reading passages on IELTS are not always simple, so Bruno knew he needed to be able to be familiar with many different subjects.

For each section of the exam, he never had enough time to complete it.

Once he had the 3 Keys IELTS strategies, he was able to finish the Reading section with time to spare.

He realized that the Reading exam is not a comprehension test.

It is purely a test of your strategies.

What did Bruno read to prepare for IELTS?

He read newspapers like The Guardian.

He would read all the subjects.

  • Daily News
  • Politics
  • Economics
  • Weather

He also read novels and nonfiction books about subjects that interested him like Antarctica.

What tips does Bruno give for Writing Task 1 on the Academic exam?

His exam had a Process diagram about how fruit jelly is made.

He had studied a lot about the other possible Writing Task 1 questions, but not as much for Processes!

He was able to use the 3 Keys IELTS strategies to avoid panic!

Focusing on using linking words and phrases correctly, he was able to write a high-scoring essay.
