IELTS Series: Study tips for IELTS Preparation

Posted By

The International English Language Testing System, or IELTS, is an international standardized test of English language proficiency for non-native English language speakers. It is jointly managed by the British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and Cambridge Assessment English

In the weeks before the IELTS test you should practise listening, reading, writing, and speaking every day. This should be part of your study plan because, like any other skill, you need plenty of practice to improve.

Each and every aspect of the test has its specific strategies to improve your general listening, reading, writing, and speaking abilities, as well as your ability for the IELTS test.

These strategies include:

  1. listening, reading, writing, and speaking for relaxation and enjoyment
  2. listening, reading, writing, and speaking to gain information
  3. listening, reading, writing, and speaking to build vocabulary
  4. listening, reading, writing, and speaking to increase speed.

Tips for better study

  1. Try to find a comfortable and quiet place to read.
  2. Avoid listening to music or the radio while you are reading as this may affect your concentration.
  3. Make sure you have enough light while you read. Otherwise your eyes will become tired or you may get a headache.
  4. Study something that is suitable for your level of English. Texts that are too difficult will require you to use a dictionary too often.
  5. Study during your spare time – for example, on the train, on the bus or while you are waiting at the bank.
  6. Also put a time frame to your study period for the test and be committed to your study plan.
