«Although the writing tasks are designed to test a candidate's ability to write, rather than the quality of ideas, it is my experience that students that have read widely around the topic areas, which commonly crop up in all components of the IELTS exam, tend to write with greater sophistication and purpose. Students are therefore encouraged to read articles from magazines such as Time and The Economist in order to keep abreast of current issues»
«Make sure you organize your writing before you begin. Use the back of your answer sheet to create a concept map.
The examiners judge your writing on its clarity. Make sure you have supported your ideas with specific details.
You can write more than 150 words for Task 1 or more than 250 words for Task 2, but you can’t write less. You will lose points if you have less than the assigned number of words in your essay.
In the introductory paragraph, paraphrase your ideas. Do not use the exact words in the introduction that you use in the body of the essay. This gives your writing more variety and more interest.
You must answer the question completely. Do not leave any part out or you will lose points.
Organize your time carefully. Leave time for planning, writing, revising».
· «Highlight/circle key words.
· Clearly divide paragraphs.
· Don't repeat ideas in a different way.
· Stick to the topic.
· Сareful with timing - don't rush Task Two, it's longer and is worth more points.
· Paragraph simply, with one idea in each paragraph.
· Avoid informal language.
· Learn to recognize how long 150 words look in your handwriting. You don't really have time to count.
· Get used to always spending several minutes re-reading and correcting your essays.
· Don't memorize model answers, they won't fit the question and you will make more careless mistakes»From http://www.britishcouncil.org
