First Page IELTS

Published by on August 9th, 2019

I repeatedly advise students preparing for IELTS to read more fiction as a way to acquire and consolidate a wider range of vocabulary and grammar, but they often refuse to believe in the benefits of reading ‘for pleasure’. If anybody in the class has a novel with them, I ask to see it and then highlight – from the first page – all of the language likely to get them band 7 or above.
