It is important that you try to put what you will learn into practice by trying to use some of the tips and strategies that you will be shown. This is the way to improve your score.
Of course, everybody has different ways of learning and some people are more comfortable with doing things one way than someone else.
You will be shown various strategies and techniques but don’t feel that you have to do everything the way it has been explained in the book — if you like some strategies or techniques then use them. If there are things you do not feel suit you, then do it your own way or another way that you have been taught.
You’ll always hear different advice on ways to approach the IELTS test as teachers have different methods — there is not always a right or wrong way.
It is important to be flexible — choose what works for you
Of course, whatever you do, you must ensure that you are meeting the criteria as set out in the band descriptors.
How to use the book
It is recommended that you work through the book unit by unit as each unit builds up different skills and they are then built further in the next unit. You can, though, look at specific units if you need particular help in one area.
