Collins Writing for IELTS
Collins Writing for IELTS is one of the best IELTS writing preparation books in the market. This book will help you a lot to pass the IELTS book with a good score.
Who is this book for?
Writing for IELTS will prepare you for the IELTS Academic Writing test whether you are taking the test for the first time, or re-sitting the test. It has been written for learners with band scores 5-5.5 who are trying to achieve a band score 6 or higher.
The structured approach, comprehensive answer key and model answers have been designed so that you can use the materials to study on your own. However, the book can also be used as a supplementary writing skills course for IELTS preparation classes. The book provides enough material for approximately 50 hours of classroom activity.
Writing for IELTS is divided into 12 units. Each unit focuses on a topic area that you are likely to meet in the IELTS exam.
This helps you to build up a bank of vocabulary and ideas related to a variety of the topics. Units 1-11 cover the key stages of the writing process: everything from analysing the task to proof-reading a completed response. Every exercise is relevant to the test.
The aims listed at the start of each unit specify the key skills, techniques and language covered in the unit. You work towards Unit 12, which provides a final practice IELTS Writing test. Additionally, the book provides examination strategies telling you what to expect and how best to succeed in the test.
Exam information is presented in clear, easy-to-read chunks. ‘Exam tips’ in each unit highlight essential exam techniques and can be rapidly reviewed at a glance.
Each of the first 11 units is divided into 3 parts. Part 1 introduces vocabulary related to the topic as well as a selection of the most common academic words and expressions needed for the writing functions covered in the unit.
A range of exercises gives you the opportunity to use the vocabulary — clearly and effectively — in a variety of contexts. The vocabulary is presented using Collins COBUILD dictionary definitions. Part 2 provides step-by-step exercises and guidance on the key stages of the writing process.
Both writing Task 1 and Task 2 are covered in each unit. There are guided questions and worked examples to show you what an effective IELTS response looks like.
Useful expressions and grammatical forms are highlighted, and there are exercises to help you to develop good range and accuracy in your writing.
You are encouraged to apply what you have learnt while at the same time writing your own responses to task questions. Part 3 provides exam practice questions for Task 1 and Task 2 in a format that follows the actual exam. You can use this as a means of assessing your readiness for the actual exam.
