IELTS Exam Tip 3

Listening Tip

When you have to complete a flow chart, remember to listen for sequencing words such asthen and next as they help you understand the stages of the process.

Reading Tip

True, False, Not Given questions

False means that the information in the question is factually wrong.

Not Given means that the information in the statement is impossible to check because it is not mentioned in the text.

Use the questions to help guide you through the reading passage. Look for clues in the questions to find the correct part of the passage then read this section carefully.

Writing Tip

One of the most useful strategies for linking points between sentences is to use the demonstrative this or these.

This or these can be used either on its own or followed by a summary word which captures the main point of the preceding sentence.

Study the example bellow:

In the past, many people believed that people over the age of sixty-five were too old to work.This view is no longer widely held.

Speaking Tip

You can always exploit the vocabulary in the questions.

For example, you might be asked about a time when you won a game, and then you can use the vocabulary to talk about how you played and won a match.

Or you may be asked to describe a famous person you admire. Then you could describe a sporting hero and talk about their skill in their sport and a time when they an opponent.

Always think about how you can transfer vocabulary you have learnt to other exam questions.
