Welcome to Season 2 of Activate Your IELTS: Be Determined! In this episode we will discuss different types of sentence structures. Being able to use a variety of sentence structures is very important when it comes to doing well on IELTS writing tasks. You really need to be able to use simple structures as well as more complex structures do demonstrate your strengths and abilities in English. In this episode I will look at some simple rules to help you learn how to write simple sentences, compound sentences, and complex sentences in English.
I also wanted to help students who are getting started with the IELTS exam. In the links below I have provided a link to the 10 Step Guide to the IELTS exam to help you get started but I have also created a Recommended Resources page to help students who are wondering what study books will help them get started. Make sure to check out this list if you want some recommendations for good IELTS exam practice books.

Simple Sentence Example: She does her homework after school.
Compound Sentence Example: We recycle our materials, so we can save the environment
Complex Sentence Example: We could create a presentation for this course, or we could write a research paper
