IELTS 15 gives students the perfect opportunity to familiarise themselves with IELTS and practise examination techniques using authentic test material. You can choose either an edition containing four complete tests for the Academic module or for the General Training module. An introduction to these different modules is included in each book, together with an explanation of the scoring system used by Cambridge Assessment English. The books come with answers and extra explanations, audio for the Listening tests, tapescripts, sample Writing answers and an example Speaking test video so they are ideal for self-study.
One of the biggest challenges in taking the IELTS test is that you only hear it once. If you miss some paragraphs, you won’t have a second chance to do it. However, when we practice listening at home, it is completely possible for you to break the song down and listen to it over and over again. Each time you listen, you will inevitably learn something new and your listening skills will improve a lot compared to when you only listen to the tape once. Listening tips: – Listen to the same tape over and over, with each listening, focus on different elements. For example, for the first time listening to the song, focus on listening to and understanding the meaning of the whole song or grasp the main idea of the song. On the second listening session, you can focus on listening to the verbs of the song, and see how they are divided. Next try to listen to the speaker’s pronunciation, stress, or intonation, and finally try to listen to words like articles or prepositions …. Your headphones will gradually improve after listening again and again with this method of deep listening.
If you have already finished all of the Reading lessons of the set, do not hesitate to do them again. First of all, do the test for 60 minutes to see how much score you get. Next, do the test again, but this time do not limit the time that you just do the test according to your ability. Only made one passage within 20 minutes. Try focusing on only one question type, for example: true, false, not given form. Test and use the parallel dictionary to see if you can improve your score. Or you can try reading an article to see if you understand it or not. Don’t answer the questions. Alternatively, you can preview the answers and try again in the text to see where they appear. Finally, you should create a vocabulary table and the words “keywords” in the lesson
When you practice writing, instead of writing 4 different writing problems, try writing one problem but write it in 4 different times. Each time you write, try to improve and develop one aspect of the article. For example: – At the first time of writing, you can try to focus on the grammar part of the article, try to use diversity and use complex structures in the article. For the second writing, you can develop more ideas for the essay, especially the explanation and evidence. – In the next times, why don’t we explore more and improve the vocabulary of the lesson? When you apply this method, your writing skills will definitely improve!
For the Speaking topics in the Cam, please: Compose lists of different questions Practice them every day, so remember every day. Record your talk so we can listen again and check if there are any mistakes and note it for improvement later. The goal is that you can “master” this list of questions before you take the test. All of the above methods follow the repetitive method, which is sure that in the beginning you will feel very depressed and very bored. However, there’s no shortcut to success! Once you are determined and practice with this method, then surely not only your IELTS test-taking skills in particular, but your English skills in general will greatly increase!
