To do well in IELTS, you need to understand how the test works. This is difficult to do quickly because there are so many task types, and so many sections to the test (Speaking Parts 1, 2 and 3; Writing Parts 1 and 2; and so on). Each part tests different things in different ways. So, there’s a lot to learn.
For example, do you know:
- about distractors in the Listening test?
- the importance of presenting a balanced argument in Writing Task 2?
- how to use opinionated discourse markers in the Speaking test?
You could read an IELTS book to find out, but it’s almost impossible to take in all this information at one time. So, we’ve designed an app that drip-feeds key hints and tips day by day. That gives you a chance to think about them, to try them out, and to internalise them over a whole month. This is one effective way to study strategically, rather than overwork yourself whilst not improving your results.
The IELTS Tips app will give you the answers to 30 questions, like the three you see above. The app includes advice from British Council IELTS experts, experienced IELTS teachers and successful IELTS candidates. As more candidates are using their mobiles to prepare for their IELTS tests, this app fits in perfectly with the resources you can access on IELTSPractice.com. It is available free of charge in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. Simply search for IELTS Tips by ClarityEnglish.
