IELTS Newsletter: What We've Done

Where We’ve Been

We were delighted to be featured on the 39th episode of the Two Geeks And A Marketing Podcast. The podcast features and references all the content we have been creating to help you get the score you need.

Pop on over and have a listen!

Not only that, but we have also participated in research conducted by the University of Lancaster about what IELTS writing scores represent in practical terms, especially for staff responsible for making admission decisions.  

The project aims to produce tools that will guide admissions staff in understanding what linguistic skills they can expect from students admitted to their programmes.

Website News

This month we published a new model Task 1 letter. This one is informal and contains a plural bullet point that must be answered in a very specific way – click here to find out more.

We also published a double-question Task 2 essay. This one also has a plural in one of the questions. Click here to find out how to avoid the mistake many candidates make.
