Collins Writing For IELTS By Anneli Williams PDF
If you are new to IELTS, we recommend that you work systematically through the 12 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 and four hours of study material. Having access to someone who can provide informed feedback on 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.
Ideally, you should begin each unit by working through the Part 1 vocabulary exercises. Try to answer the questions without looking at a dictionary in order to develop the skill of inferring the meaning of unfamiliar words from context. This is important because dictionaries cannot be used during the actual exam. Avoid writing the answers to vocabulary exercises directly into the book so that you can try the exercises again once you have completed the unit.
Work through the Part 2 writing exercises from beginning to end. It is important to study the examples given in order to become familiar with the type of writing required. Doing this will also help you become a perceptive – and critical – reader of your own work. 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. All learners, including those who are working on their own, should attempt the writing tasks as writing is a skill that can only be improved through extensive practice. At the same time, you should aim to become well-informed about a wide variety of subjects, not just those covered in the book.
The IELTS Writing test can cover almost any topic considered to be within the grasp of a well-educated person.
Part 3 contains exam practice with timed questions. This gives you the opportunity to practice writing to a time limit. If you find this difficult at first, you could focus first on writing a high-quality response to 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. You should become familiar enough with your own handwriting so that you can accurately estimate the number of words you have written at a glance. Model answers should be studied to identify the underlying approach and effect on the reader. Try not to memorize essays 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.
