    IELTS Writing: Complex sentences made easy for Writing and Speaking ('reduced adverbials'!)

    This was the first day of my Live IELTS Writing Workshops on YouTube, so I wanted to give you a taste of what happens in the workshop.


     You post a question on my special website page for the workshops https://ieltsetc.com/2020/03/ielts-writing-workouts/
     I prepare a lesson based on your question
     You join the live session on YouTube https://youtu.be/g9YNTvtMTR8
     I give you some practice sentences and you write your own examples in the comments
    I give you feedback on your comments
    Repeat every day until the lockdown is over!

    Catch the video on my channel if you missed it (also on the webiste page above and on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/ieltsAtoZ/)

    Come and join us!

    Today we practiced 'Reduced Adverbials' (complex, but simple to use when you know how).

    IELTS Computer-Delivered General Training Reading Test Part 1

    IELTS Computer-Delivered General Training Reading Test Part 1

    This podcast is taken from my YouTube Video (watch this to see the text).

    https://youtu.be/Fq000OEq_OU

    I take you through the first part of a Computer-Delivered #IELTS General Training Reading Test and look at the benefits of taking the test online (as well as the drawbacks!). 

    The first reading is horrendous - the second is much easier, so skip forward if you don't like the first one! 

    This is the practice test I used: 

    https://ielts.com.au/computer-delivered-ielts/computer-reading-practice-test/ 

    Test 1 Part 1: Difficulty rating 8/10 😣 

    Test 1 Part 2: Difficulty rating 3/10 😄 

    And here's my FULL analysis of the Computer-Delivered test https://ieltsetc.com/2020/02/ielts-paper-computer/

    IELTS Writing Error Correction - The Blue Book project 📘

    Do you rely on a teacher to correct your writing mistakes for the IELTS Test? Is this the most effective way?   

    In this podcast I look at some research that's been done about the best way to learn from your mistakes - and the answers may surprise you!  

    Here is the YouTube video, where you can see all the texts that I mention:
