"This course is very comprehensive for Writing Task 1 in General Training. I got a score of 7.5 for writing after completing this course. The instructor explains everything in great detail and is very easy to follow." - Sujata Sreejith

Should I take this course?

Are you struggling to achieve a Band 7 or above score in the General Training (GT) module of IELTS Writing?

Do you doubt yourself when it comes to writing informal, semi-formal or formal letters?

Are you unsure of how to demonstrate purpose or write grammatically complex sentences?

If so, this course is for you.

My first course - Mastering IELTS Writing: Task 2 - has one of the highest number of 5-star ratings of any IELTS course on Udemy (3,500+). It has been enrolled upon by over 25,000 students from 150+ different countries, and is statistically 6 times more engaging than the average IELTS course.

Now, I am bringing you Mastering IELTS Writing: Task 1 (General Training).

This course contains the same high-quality tuition, the same crisp, clean, accessible presentation, and the same invaluable expertise acquired through thousands of hours of IELTS tuition which is offered in my Task 2 course and my Task 1 Academic course. 

Why waste time and money on outdated course books, inexperienced teachers and failed exams? Learn the tips, tricks, secrets and techniques required to succeed in IELTS Writing Task 1 GT, and take control of your IELTS future today!

How will this course help me?

This course will teach you how to write what the IELTS examiners want to read in IELTS Writing Task 1 GT. It is aimed at students who are trying to achieve Band 7, but will also be extremely valuable for any students aiming for Band 6 or Band 8. Even Band 9 aspiring students will learn something new here!

You might think that the IELTS examiners only care about a wide range of vocabulary, correct spelling and accurate grammar. This is wrong. These are all important, but there is so much more you can do to boost your score.

Mastering IELTS Writing: Task 1 (General Training) tells you exactly what you need to know to succeed in this English language exam.

During this course, you will:

  • understand how the IELTS exam, and the writing test in particular, is structured and how it should be approached

  • learn how to write an answer to any Writing Task 1 question after learning how to recognise different letter types

  • learn how to manage your time wisely, how to plan your  letter effectively, and how to structure your letter appropriately

  • find out different ways of naturally transitioning between ideas, sentences and paragraphs 

  • learn the importance of selecting an appropriate tone and demonstrating a clear purpose

  • find out how to increase your range of vocabulary related to several different types of letter

  • study the steps you need to take in order to achieve grammatical range and accuracy

  • learn many of the 'secrets of success' that will help you to get the best score possible

  • discover many of the common errors made in Task 1 General Training and how to avoid these yourself

  • begin to feel confident, assured and increasingly prepared for the writing test in your next IELTS exam

Who this course is for:
  • Students who want to learn how to get a high score (Band 7+) in Task 1 of the IELTS Writing test, General Training module
  • Although this course is aimed at those who need a Band 7 and above in Task 1 General Training, it will also help those trying to get a 6 or 6.5
  • This course is NOT appropriate for students who need help in IELTS Writing Task 1 Academic, Writing Task 2, Listening, Reading or Speaking
  • This course is NOT appropriate for students who do not already have a fairly good level of English. If your most recent IELTS score was 5 or lower, then this course may not be helpful for you
