Welcome to IELTS Introduction Study Skills. This is a different kind of exam practice book. As well as providing you with exam practice materials, this book will:

Familiarize you with the different question types you will find in IELTS and give you guided practice in each of them. Help you to develop the skills you need to be successful. There are four parts, corresponding to the four IELTS modules.

Each part begins with skills development. In these sections you will develop your skills through focused exercises, with detailed guidance given in the key to each question. Next, in the skills practice sections,

you can put what you have learnt into practice. Finally, the book contains a complete Practice test. As IELTS Introduction is aimed at students starting at around band 3-4, some of the reading and listening texts are shorter or the questions are a little easier than you would find in IELTS, especially towards the beginning.

Essential vocabulary is given in a glossary. This will support you as you gradually develop your skills and improve your IELTS score. For Writing and Speaking both model answers and sample student answers are given, so that you can start to evaluate your own work. Useful language is also provided.

The book is intended to be used for self study, but could also form the basis of a short intensive IELTS preparation course.
