This course is mainly aimed at candidates taking Academic IELTS; however, those taking General IELTS will also find it useful for Task 2 Writing. Having a large lexical resource is essential for all parts of the IELTS test. In IELTS Writing, particularly, IELTS examiners are looking for collocations, discourse markers i.e. linking words, complex language and you need to be able to use these things confidently in order to get a higher band score. Many IELTS candidates repeat words over and over again e.g. people, people, people and this will get you a low band score in IELTS.
