Are you intimidated by the graphs, charts, processes and maps that appear in IELTS Writing Task 1?
Do you struggle to identify main trends, to work out which information is most relevant, and to record data with precision?
Are you unsure how to structure your response? Do you feel you lack the words to describe data? Do you panic at the thought of comparative grammar and complex sentences?
I designed this course for anyone who answers 'yes' to any of these questions.
After seeing the popularity of my Mastering IELTS Writing: Task 2 (Band 9 Model Answers) course, which has been enrolled upon by over 8,000 students and has an average rating of 4.6/5, I decided to make a similar course for IELTS Writing Task 1 for the Academic module.
Throughout the course of each video, we will discover how to effectively plan our response for each type of Task 1 question, how to produce a quick and accurate introduction, how to transition seamlessly between sentences and paragraphs, how to identify main trends and select information which counts as 'key features', how to use vocabulary which describes data precisely and effectively, and how to include a wealth of grammatical complexity without sacrificing clarity.
This course has been divided into six sections, with each section dedicated to a different type of task: graphs with a trend; comparative graphs; tasks with more than one graph; tasks with a future element; processes; and maps. Within each of these sections are three responses, and each of these section's responses looks at a different topic. That makes a total of eighteen responses!
Designing the course in this way allows you to see the different language and the different approaches we use for each of the task types, and it also provides you with a great range of vocabulary and ideas according to different types of data presentation.
There are vocabulary exercises following each of the letter lectures which aim to consolidate the vocabulary you have learnt in that video. These will also provide you with a copy of each response in document form.
To make the most out of this Model Answers course, it is strongly recommended that you go through the original 'Mastering IELTS Writing: Task 1 (Academic)' course before beginning as all of the responses here rely on the strategies, vocabulary, grammar and general guidance taught in that course. This course has an average rating of 4.7/5 from over 8,500 students and over 2,000 reviews, so it's definitely worth checking out!
However, you can still benefit a lot from these model answers if you take the two courses at the same time.
And if you have any questions as you work your way through the lectures, don't hesitate to contact me via Udemy's Q&A feature.
See you inside the course!
