In Writing Task Two of the IELTS test, you only have 40 minutes to write a 250-word essay.
In this time, you must analyse the question, write the essay and leave time to check it for any mistakes.
That does not give you much time to think of relevant ideas for your essay.
That’s why I wrote this ebook.
After analysing the most recent exam questions, I came up with the topics that are most common in the IELTS test and I put them all together in this book with ideas and vocabulary for all of those topics.
Now, when you are preparing for the Writing part of the test, you can use this book to find relevant ideas to write your essays.
This will provide you with valuable exam practice and you will be prepared for the real IELTS test
So, study this book to prepare for any essay question you get in the real IELTS test and save valuable time in brainstorming.
The ebook contains the most common IELTS topics over the last 20 years. Although the questions may change, the main topic areas remain the same. Therefore, by studying this book you can prepare for any topic you may get in Writing Task 2 or Speaking.
Each topic has a model IELTS Speaking 2 question and a model IELTS Writing Task 2 question which you can use for exam practice. Study the chapter then give yourself 40 minutes to do the essay question. Also time yourself speaking for 2 minutes about the given topic. This will help consolidate the new vocabulary and the ideas in the book.
Use each idea to elevate your grammar. Practise writing complex sentences or developing your speaking with complex sentences. Remember complex sentences show a higher level of grammar and this will lead to a higher band score for grammar.
You can save time. You only have 40 minutes to write 250 words in Writing Task 2. Brainstorming ideas quickly can leave you more time to write your essay and check it for mistakes.
Speaking fluently is one of the criteria assessed during the IELTS Speaking test. Reading the topics in the Common Topics ebook out loud and repeatedly can help improve your fluency.
Many students ask: “can I write an essay which is in the same topic area but not directly related to the topic?”
Well, the answer is no!
You will lose marks if your essay doesn’t answer the question because it will be off topic.
Just because a question is related to technology, for example, does not mean that any essay about technology would be relevant. To avoid this, you need to develop a broad range of vocabulary and ideas for many common IELTS topics.
The IELTS Most Common Topics ebook is full of ideas and vocabulary for 36 of the most common topic areas in the IELTS test – but you must choose only the relevant information for your essay.
After 20 years of teaching IELTS, I’ve come up with 36 of the most common topics in Speaking and Writing. I’ve put them all together in this booklet so that you can study at home and prepare for the test.
So as you can see, this ebook can help you in many different ways.
Study it carefully so you can go in to the IELTS test feeling confident that you have enough ideas to write a high scoring essay (ielts 6.0, ielts 7.5, etc.) and speak at length about a wide range of topics.
