Useful Structures to help you Get Band 7.5+ in IELTS Writing

One of the biggest mistakes most IELTS candidates make in IELTS writing is to use complicated sentences in their Writing Tasks, which results in grammar mistakes and sabotages their IELTS score

Therefore, knowing how to make good use of complex structures for your IELTS Writing Task 2 essay is an essential skill to get the band score you deserve. Nevertheless, bear in mind that we should use complex sentences in our writing rather than try to make all of our sentences complex. Complex sentences can be relative clauses, subordinate clauses, conditional clauses, or compound sentences.

Before we move on to sentence structures that talks about subject, verbs, and objects. You should be aware of what these terms are.

  • Subject – The subject is the doer of the action or whoever the sentence revolves around.
  • Verb – The verb usually follows the subject and identifies an action or a state of being.
  • Object – The object of a sentence is the person or thing that receives the action of the verb. It is the who or what that the subject does something to.

This post will fully equip you with 10 useful grammar structures to help you boost your IELTS score.
