The structured approach. comprehensive answer key and model answers have been designed so that you can use the materials to study on your own. However, the book can also be used as a supplementary writing skils course for IELTS preparation classes. The book provides enough material for approximately 50 hours of classroom time.
Content Writing for IELTS is divided into 12 units. Each unit focuses on a topic area that you are likely to encounter in the IELTS Writing test. This helps you to build up a bank of vocabulary and ideas related to a variety of the topics.
Units 1-11 cover the key stages of the writing process: everything from analysing the task to proof-reading a completed response. Every exercise is relevant to the exam. The aims listed at the start of each unit specify the key skills, techniques and language covered in the unit. You work towards Unit 12. which provides a final practice IELTS Writing test.
Additionally, the book provides exam strategies telling you what to expect and how best to succeed in the exam. Exam information is presented in clear, easy-to-read boxes. Exam tips in each unit highlight essential exam techniques and can be rapidly reviewed at a glance.
There are also Watch Out! boxes that will help you avoid common errors made in the exam. Finally, the Exam tutor at the end of each unit gives you the opportunity to revise and consolidate the exam skils you have studied.
Unit structure Each of the first 11 units is divided into three parts Part 1 Language development introduces vocabulary related to the topic as well as some of the most common academic words and expressions needed for the writing functions covered in the unit.A range of exercises gives you the opportunity to use the vocabulary in a variety of contexts. These exercises also build awareness of the patterns in words and language items. The vocabulary is presented using Collins COBUILD dictionary definitions.
Part 2 Exam skills provides step-by-step exercises and guidance on the key stages of the writing process. There are guided questions and worked examples to show you what an effective IELTS Writing response looks like. Useful expressions and grammatical forms are highlighted, and there are exercises that help you develop good range and accuracy in your writing. You are encouraged to apply what you have learnt, while at the same time writing your own responses to task questions. Exam information and Exam tips show you how to approach each task type and will help you develop successful test-taking strategles.
Part 3 Exam practice provides exam practice questions for Task 1 and Task 2 in a format that follows the actual exam.
You can use this as a means of assessing your readiness for the actual exam. There is also an Exam tutor checklist after the exam practice that will help you revise and consolidate key points to improve your writino.
Answer key A comprehensive answer key is provided for all sections of the book, including recommended answers and explanations for more open-ended writing tasks. There are model answers for all of the writing questions. For one of the practice exam questions in each unit, two model answers are given -one of them annotated. This shows you that a variety of approaches to each writing task can be taken.
Using the book for self-study If you are new to IELTS, we recommend that you work systematically through the 1 units in order to benefit from its progressive structure. If you are a more experienced learner, you can use the aims listed at the start of each unit to select the most useful exercises.
Each unit contains between three to four hours of self-study material. Having access to someone who can provide informed feedback on the writing practice exercises is an advantage. However, you can still learn a lot working alone, or with a study partner willing to give and receive peer feedback.
Part 1: Language development ideally, you should begin each unit by working through the Part 1: Language development exercises. Try to answer the questions without looking at a dictionary in order to develop the skill of infering the meaning of unfamiliar words from context Part 2: Exam skills Work through the Part 2: Exam skils from beginning to end. It is important to study the Exam information and Exam tios about each of the question types, so that you become familiar with how to approach the different writing tasks in the exam. Doing this will also help you develop more general writing skills. The grammar points covered should be thoroughly mastered so that during the actual exam you can focus on the higher order skills of planning and effectively communicating your response.
Part 3: Exam practice This section contains exam practice with timed questions. This gives you the opportunity to practise writing to a time limit. If you find this difficult at first, you could focus first on writing a high-quality response of the correct length. Then you could start to reduce the time allowed gradually until you are able to write an acceptable answer within the time limit. Model answers should be studied to identify the underlying approach and effect on the reader. Try not to memoriseessays or reports or to attempt to fit a pre-existing response around another exam question. If you work systematically through the book, you should develop the skills and language to effectively express your own responses to unseen exam questions on the day. Unit 12 Practice exam This is a complete practice Writing exam. This unit should be done under exam conditions.
