    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/

    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:

    BONUS episode! My interview with Dr Heidi Brumbaugh, creator of the Vocab Victor app.

    BONUS episode! My interview with Dr Heidi Brumbaugh, creator of the Vocab Victor app.

    This week I interview the creator of the marvellous Vocab Victor app, Dr Heidi Brumbaugh.

    Dr Heidi realised that my 28-Days of IELTS Word List would be a perfect match for her app, so now you can practise the essential words that you need to learn for IELTS in a fun and motivating way.

    In the interview, we talked about:


    the problems students have when they try to learn intermediate vocabulary (and how Vocab Victor solves this problem)
    how vocabulary is more important than grammar when you're trying to increase your band score
    the best ways to learn vocabulary and retain new words
    the benefits of learning from carefully-chosen word lists
    the importance of reviewing words in different contexts (Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking which are included in every day of my 28-Day IELTS Vocabulary Booster Course and Challenge).

    On top of that, this episode is GREAT listening practice! (Nice to have an American accent for a change!).

    Find out more about Vocab Victor and how it works with my IELTS word lists on Dr Heidi's page:

    Get the Vocab Victor app in the app store:
