Description

From ex-IELTS examiner James Castleden's YouTube channel IELTS Step-by-step comes a course dedicated to learning, using and remembering the most important vocabulary for the IELTS exam, both Academic and General Training. 100s of IELTS past papers have been studied to identify the high-level vocabulary that most often comes up in the Reading and Listening modules, and top-scoring Writing and Speaking answers have been analysed to determine what vocabulary was used and how.

Take this course to significantly improve your overall score in the Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking modules, in both the Academic and General Training IELTS.
