Topic knowledge is essential

A lot of students tell me they have trouble with IELTS because they don't know anything about the topics, especially in Speaking and Writing.

Here is a very simple solution:

  1. Find the topics & questions you have little knowledge of (you can also find a list in my book) Common topics include education, tourism, relationships, childcare, arts, travel etc.
  2. Search for news articles online on these topics. Read and study them
  3. Make notes about the vocabulary and main points in the article.
  4. Talk about the article with your speaking practice teacher using the main ideas and vocabulary you learned.
  5. Move onto the next topic/article.
