  • Hey! I'm happy to be back again, this time with last video in the set of "Top 13

  • Tips" about different modules of IELTS; and today we will be talking about the Writing

  • module. But before we dive in, I'd like to introduce you to my new Twitter account,

  • which I will be frequently using for various announcements and currently I am

  • working on a huge project, which will be free for you guys, and which will be in

  • real time, and obviously dedicated to IELTS.

  • But before announcing it, I'm waiting for more people to subscribe, because I want

  • to announce it efficiently, and because I want more people to know about it. So,

  • just go and check it out. And lastly, I have linked in the description box down

  • below, as always, all the books that I used. which are completely free for download,

  • and I guess, they will be useful for you in the preparation for the Writing section.

  • Okay, so the first tip is to analyze and actually take some time to think and to

  • take notes about what you will be writing. You know, the cost of rushing

  • forward and thinking that you must start writing straight away, when were given the

  • task, is too high. Because it is essential for you to stop and think, planning

  • beforehand, because, you know, it requires you to be a professional

  • journalist to compose your thoughts instantly and to know what you will be

  • writing in your essay. Let alone in English.

  • The second one is learn the structure of your essay beforehand and basically

  • disregarding of the type of module that you're dealing with whether it's

  • Academic or General, it doesn't matter. Because actually in the writing task

  • chances are the most likely you will be dealing with four paragraphs, which means

  • first - you introduce the topic, you give a brief overview, and then you divide your

  • ideas into four paragraphs, and then just end it with a nice conclusion. Remember,

  • the second task in writing is worth twice as much at the first task, and that

  • is why you should really put some effort in the second task. But you also need to

  • always start with Task 1, never skipping it, because the Task 1 is

  • actually easier, and it helps you to get on track, so that Task 2 comes more

  • smoothly. Then, manage your time. Practice speed writing, and actually try to spend

  • approximately 20 minutes on the first task and 40 minutes of the second task.

  • Pay attention to the number of words you're writing, because he will lose

  • marks if you write less than 150 words in Task 1, and 250 words in Task 2.

  • Also, don't try to count word by word what you wrote unless you have plenty of

  • time left, because it's more efficient to count the number of words in your line

  • and then to multiply it by the number of lines in your essay. But better, learn to

  • recognize how do you 150 words and 250 words look like on the answer sheet in

  • your handwriting, so that you won't need to count them. And I have linked down

  • below the actual answer sheet for writing so you can download it, print it

  • to have the best experience in your preparation. Okay, next one. Do not copy

  • anything from the task. I mean, of course, you can copy some words but never the

  • whole sentence. This will lower your score significantly. And instead always

  • paraphrase. However, do not try to paraphrase your ideas in the essay. I

  • mean there are students who try to introduce one idea. A single one. But

  • paraphrasing it differently into the two or even three paragraphs. Just do not

  • do it. If you are introducing an idea make it final and then go to the next

  • paragraph, talking about something else. In order to score high in writing you

  • will need to show your advanced skills of eloquent writing. And for this you must

  • learn as many synonims as possible, because it will make your essay

  • pleasant to read. And I will be preparing the next video about the vocabulary

  • for writing in IELTS and different synonyms. So please take some time to

  • actually learn synonyms because the more of them you use, the better score

  • you will achieve. Okay, Writing is the last module and probably you will be quite

  • exhausted by them, craving and break. But do not fall for this trap, because

  • minutes of postponing and delay can cost you valuable points. Instead, try to use

  • some time when an examiner hands in the booklets and tasks to take a break and

  • to meditate. Maybe, to clear your mind, to think about something that relaxes you,

  • and just try to forget everything connected to the previous actions. It

  • doesn't any longer matter anything. At any cost

  • avoid contractions such as "don't", "won't" "doesn't", "can't" and informal language.

  • Instead, use formal language, pay attention to your grammar, punctuation

  • and spelling. Because obviously if you're making mistakes you're losing points. And

  • vice versa, you will gain some points if you have sophisticated grammar

  • incorporated. And the last one, as always do not try to memorize any model answers,

  • because the examiners are actually trained to recognize them, and you will lose your

  • score. Also, you will lose marks if you write your ideas in bullet points, not

  • in full. Okay, guys, that's all. If you need to ask any question, you can directly

  • contact me by a different social media that I have linked down below in the

  • description. And as always, I will be delighted

  • to see you again here. Bye!
