IELΤS for Αcadеmic Ρurposеs Student’s Book
The Student’s Book has eight units, which increase in difficulty as the book progresses. Each unit focuses on a different topic. These are topics that often appear in the IELTS exam.
Each unit starts with a section developing reading skills. Then we focus on listening skills. Then speaking skills.Then writing skills. The unit finishes with an Exam Practice section, where you can practise the skills you’ve developed in the unit by doing IELTS exam tasks.
In the skills sections of each unit, the IELTS Skill Spot provides useful advice on key language and exam skills and the Wordbank focuses on useful vocabulary. In the speaking and writing sections, the Grammarbank focuses on grammar that’s useful for speaking and writing. In the Exam Practice sections, the IELTS Skill Spot provides tips on what to do – and what not to do – in the exam.
Students and classes work at different speeds, and have particular needs, but we think each unit of the Student’s Book should take approximately five hours to complete.
Before Unit 1, there’s a Placement Test. This is designed to give you a general idea of your level. Take the test, and look at your results. It will show you where you’re doing well, and which aspects of the exam you need to focus on more.
