IELTS Newsletter: What We've Done

Where We’ve Been

We have hit the ground running this year! Just look below to see the number of countries our IELTS test candidates have come from.

We have also been in frequent contact with our European publisher and expect that our new IELTS Task 2 book will finally be published in February! 

It has been a long time coming (due to problems with small publishers who were unable to cope)—but we think it will be worth it!

Website News

This month we have published a full set of our usual series—including a model IELTS General Task 1 letter and a model IELTS Writing Task 2 about online shopping. 

We also updated our recommended IELTS book page for 2023.

Check out our blog for other posts.
