Jul 18, 2019


A few weeks ago I ran a free IELTS Writing Masterclass.  I got several hundred attendees and they all had a ton of questions!  I decided to take some of the most pertinent questions and answer them in this podcast.  Here are some of the questions I answer:

  • How do I improve my vocabulary skills?
  • Should I know beforehand the theme of the text IELTS will provide me?
  • How do I count words while writing?
  • Should I use contractions when writing?
  • When the test asks to give some examples, and you give only one, do they mark down?
  • If I have an 8.5 speaking, but a 7 in writing, how can I get to a 7.5 or 8 in writing?
  • I'd like to ask you how to improve from 6 to 6.5 in the writing part.
  • I can't think of ideas
  • How do I improve my reading writing and listening?
  • My biggest problem in writing is organizing 
  • We also tend to struggle with idea connectors. How do we deal with them?
  • I have issues with ideas, finish on time and grammatical level
