It is impossible to include every useful word and cover every aspect of grammar in an IELTS test preparation book. We have tried to cover some useful topics and include some key points we feel are the most useful for you in your study. As such, we have tried to highlight frequent errors, common areas of confusion and useful structures for all parts of the test.
Each unit is structured around a central topic which you are likely to come across in the IELTS test. Every unit begins with a short warm up, followed by vocabulary and exercises. This is followed by a key grammar point for the unit. Finally a review section helps you to remember what you learned.
Rather than only including a list of individual words, we show you how to use words in sentences and how to improve your own sentences by using phrases and combinations of words together. In the grammar section of each unit, you will find useful tips and helpful explanations to help you understand how to use the structures. In addition, examples which can be used in the IELTS test for both speaking and writing are included so that you can understand how to apply your own knowledge in the real exam. Lastly, the review exercises focus on different aspects of the speaking and writing test, to help you to feel more confident and understand what you need to do to improve both your range and accuracy while using English.
I hope that you find this book useful, and wish you every success in your test!
