Description

-- ** OVER 100 5-STAR REVIEWS ** -- 

Should I take this course?

Are you struggling to achieve a Band 7 or above score in IELTS Writing Task 1?

Do you get nervous when faced with line graphs, pie charts, bar charts or tables?

Are you unsure of how to write about detailed maps and complex processes?

If so, this course is for you.

My previous course - Mastering IELTS Writing: Task 2 - has the highest number of 5-star ratings of any IELTS course on Udemy (500+). It has been enrolled upon by over 3000 students from over 120 different countries, and is statistically 6 times more engaging than the average IELTS course.

Now, I am bringing you Mastering IELTS Writing: Task 1.

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. 

Why waste time and money on outdated course books, inexperienced teachers and failed exams?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, and take control of your IELTS future today! 

And if you're not completely satisfied, you can claim a full refund within 30 days!

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. 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 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 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 2 question after learning how to recognise different question types
  • learn how to manage your time wisely, how to plan your essay effectively, and how to structure your writing appropriately
  • learn how to create 'flow' in your essays so that you can begin to write like a native
  • find out how to increase your range of vocabulary quickly and effectively
  • 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
  • learn an effective 3-step formula for writing introductions and conclusions, so more time can be spent on the body of the essay
  • begin to feel confident, assured and increasingly prepared for the writing test in your next IELTS exam
Who is the target audience?
  • Students who want to learn how to get a high score (Band 7+) in Task 1 of the IELTS Writing test, Academic module
  • Although this course is aimed at those who need a Band 7 and above in Task 1 Academic, 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 General Training, 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

The IELTS Teacher - The Web's #1 IELTS Skype Tuition Site

The IELTS Teacher is an online tutoring service run and taught by Matt Rainsbury, a British native with many years of English Language and IELTS teaching experience.

Matt has a Bachelor's Degree in English and has been teaching English as a foreign language since 2008. Before teaching online, Matt had helped hundreds of students around the world to achieve their IELTS goals.

In 2013, with the aim of offering IELTS preparation to those who could not reach a native-speaker teacher, Matt created The IELTS Teacher. The IELTS Teacher is a website whereby students can book Skype-based IELTS lessons with an experienced and qualified native-speaker teacher. Matt has since worked with hundreds of students 1-on-1 who had been struggling to achieve the score they needed, and has helped them to realise their goals.

Writing is Matt's favourite component to teach. During his lessons, Matt uses a screen-sharing programme which allows students to control his keyboard, and thus guides his students through the essay-writing process and teaches them how to write a high-quality essay.

Matt's IELTS Writing Udemy course has been created by bringing together all of his knowledge and experience of both the IELTS exam itself and teaching IELTS Writing to students. It is a comprehensive course which takes the tips, techniques and skills which have been most effective at helping Matt's students to achieve their IELTS target scores.
