You can't opt for either correction of essays or PDF example essays as a standalone service (without acquiring the corresponding package). This is because the videos are designed as a starting point and support material and I often refer to them when I make corrections. I almost always provide feedback within 24 hours (usually less).
If you would like to get a taste of the video series, three of the videos are free upon getting an account on Pass your IELTS.
Payment can be made by choosing one of the premium package options from the website. Credit card and Paypal are accepted. Payment unlocks the videos automatically.
This page is also supported by a Youtube channel which has a few videos not on the website. Be sure to watch those and subscribe. Below are the links you need.
Prepare by improving your awareness of the test. Firstly, get a book of practice tests and get familiar with the nature of the questions you will be asked across all sections. Secondly, make sure you a speaking regularly and be natural in the test. Lastly, make sure your writing is excellent by having a high level English speaker check your writing.
Generally, it is a good idea to answer the question in general terms if the opinion is required to answer the question. This is not strictly a requirement, but it is generally something I recommend.
Yes. But I would only use it in introductions and conclusions. This is not a rule, but it is more impressive to give a real-world example than a personal one.
I strongly recommend writing 4 - intro, body 1, body 2, conclusion. 3 body paragraphs is possible, but not according to the structures I would teach.
No. But mostly. It is usually easier to think of ideas for and against something than just for one position alone.
This depends on whether you need 8 in all bands or 8 overall. 8 overall requires a general improvement across all areas. 8 in all bands will basically end up as a test of writing. Focus almost entirely on this and also consider doing PTE because 8s are so rare in writing in IELTS.
Normal but not informal. Try to use vocabulary specific to the topic. Don’t try to use ‘impressive’ words too often. Reading widely across a variety of topics will help in this regard.
Yes. I use it for essays that ask discussion points. I wouldn’t recommend it for pure opinion essays.
Aim for 5. Topic sentence and then four sentences explaining your ideas.
Make it short and avoid giving any detail. Prepare the reader for what is to come in the rest of the paragraph.
Summarise what you already said in your body paragraphs. This can be either in general terms, covering the themes of the paragraph, or more specific, covering the individual points raised. Never add new information or ideas in a conclusion.
Teachers describe them in different ways. I describe them as Opinion, Discussion and Opinion, Discussion, and 2 questions.
