This book puts a powerful tool in the hands of serious students who are determined to achieve a high IELTS band score. Its aim is to help the candidate improve their band score by providing high quality examples, explanations and analysis of IELTS Academic Task 1 and Task 2 writing.
Achieving a high IELTS band is not easy! Ignore books that tell you otherwise. It is a difficult job which requires both patience and determination. IELTS Writing tasks, in particular, demand hard work with plenty of practice.
There is a vast quantity of freely-available IELTS study material around but what IELTS candidates need are clear task responses that they can model their writing on, explanations about how to attempt questions and detailed analysis about ideas and language.
Books on writing techniques and tips will get you so far but one of the most powerful ways of making sure your writing matches up to the high standards of IELTS is to study very good responses to Writing Task 1 (Describing Data) and Task 2 (Writing an Essay). By studying models, you can see how descriptions and arguments are developed, how key points are stressed and how appropriate language clothes ideas.
*Eight IELTS Task 1 models are presented that cover the types of descriptive tasks that need to be attempted. These include models for tables of data, line graphs, bar charts and diagrams. Each task is presented in color and very closely reflects the types of Task 1 questions you will meet. By following the models and reading the detailed analysis contained in the feedback notes for each task, you will begin to understand what is required of you.
*Eight IELTS Task 2 models are provided along with detailed feedback notes which will show you how arguments are built up, how single-topic paragraphs are essential, how conclusions are drawn and how language needs to flow. Again, these varied tasks are very similar in wording and content to what you will experience in your IELTS exam.
This is the first book for the Academic Module in the “Models for High Band Scores” series is specifically aimed at those who are serious about their IELTS exams and determined to reach their goal of going on to further academic studies or qualifying for entry to another country.
