Foundation IELTS Masterclass | Student’S Book (pdf + Audio)

Although I get more and more requests to assist my learners with their IELTS exam preparations, the exam, or at least aspects of it, remains elusive to me. Due largely to my inexperience in teaching for this test, I endeavored to learn more about approaches to teaching IELTS materials, and this increasingly popular exam itself by reviewing Oxford’s Foundation IELTS Masterclass books. This work is geared towards candidates at the IELTS band of 4.5 to 5.5, which correlates with the Common European Framework of Reference’s (CEFR) B1/B2. 

The first plus I noticed in the Masterclass Student’s Book (SB) was the Guide to the IELTS Exam on pages 4 and 5.

So often books leave such guides out and I end up searching for how long the writing section is, for instance, on the internet or flipping through textbook pages. The SB is additionally very clearly laid out, with a section of 10 topic-based, colorful units, followed by an Information File, which contains information missing from the units themselves, such as sample writing answers and speaking parts for pairwork.
