Be able to write formal, semi-formal and informal letters


Description

**Please watch the PREVIEW VIDEOS before you buy this course to help you decide if this is the right course for you.**

In this IELTS Writing course, formal, semi-formal and informal letters will be studied and all four parts of the IELTS band descriptors will be considered to ensure that you are able to impress in all bands:

  • Task Achievement

  • Coherence and Cohesion

  • Lexical Resource

  • Grammatical Range and Accuracy

By studying IELTS Writing Task 1 model answers and analysing in detail the four bands, you will learn what IELTS examiners are looking for and how to score highly in each band for Task 1. You will learn how to structure your letters, how to make them flow, how to use complex words and phrases and how to ensure that your use of complex is extensive and accurate.

Iain, the instructor, is a former IELTS examiner and has completed IELTS teaching courses with the British Council to make sure that what he is teaching is exactly what IELTS examiners are looking for.

Please note that many of the model answers used in the videos are over 150 words. This is because we want to show you as many things as possible and this takes more than 150 words.

A comprehensive course which covers everything about IELTS general training writing task 1. You have to watch all the videos, print the model answers and write down the instructor's comments in order to get a high score. Also, I liked the fast response of the instructor; he answers all questions rapidly and accurately. I highly recommend this course.

I am in the begging of the course, so I don’t have to much information to evaluate everything. When I get to the end I would be able to evaluate better the course.

It's really an exiting experience that I have been taken through a sophisticated and ingenious course which I have ever imagined about. The content highlights the specific native users language and also the tutor takes care in explaining it-even the basics- to the not-native users. He is keen on repeating certain important requirements - like the importance of present perfect tense- so that it gets registered in the students mind. More that the model answers the in-depth analysis helps us to use its diverse features: grammar, lexical , coherence and cohesion to be used with different backgrounds. Above all the "The strategies" section of each model letter gives a exceedingly huge resource of standard phrases to improve our writing towards a native writing. Reards Jonobbas.B
