It’s been a while since my last post, but to be frank TEFL Equity Advocates has taken up most of my writing time. The start of the new academic year has also brought a lot of work. But finally I’ve found some time to post here 🙂
Since this summer I’ve been teaching a lot of IELTS preparation courses. As a result, this (and probably some of the upcoming posts) will be focused on teaching IELTS. In this one, I would like to share with you a list of tips for IELTS Writing Task 1 that I normally give to my students.
Usually the list is a final product of the course during which at different stages we brainstorm various exam tips, and is used as a revision or consolidation. Get the student to write down exam tips on one sheet of paper every time one comes up in the class. At the end of the course this list can be compared to the one suggested here.
Alternatively, revise all the tips with the student before the exam to see how much they remembered, and then compare the brainstormed list with the one here. You can also try using the DOs and DONTs at the beginning and then as a reference throughout the course.
