The first part of the book examines the format of the writing module, the assessment criteria, and the common problems that students face. It also looks at the requirements of the writing module in terms of the use of grammar and various parts of speech. The second part of the book demonstrates how to write reports, letters, and essays for the IELTS writing module and contains an extensive range of sample questions and answers.
As a teacher, I was eager to produce a book which would be ‘teacher-friendly’. The book is laid out in such a way that teachers can work through the contents of the book in the same order that they are presented.
The first section contains the answers to questions that students are likely to have. The pages devoted to grammar and structures are designed to ensure that students know what level of English is expected of them in the test.
The three chapters dealing with report, letter, and essay writing approach the task from the standpoint of a student sitting the examination – from understanding the question through to writing the conclusion.
