Action Plan for IELTS is a short, self-study guide for IELTS, containing one complete IELTS practice test. It is designed for students with a limited amount of time to prepare for the IELTS test or for students who have already completed an IELTS course and would like a last-minute guide to the IELTS test.
This IELTS book is for students at intermediate level or above, and is designed for self-study, although it may also be used in class as part of a short preparation course. It shows IELTS students what skills are tested in IELTS, what type ofquestions and tasks they will see, and how to approach them.
There are two editions: one for the IELTS Academic module and one for the IELTS General Training module. Students should use the appropriate edition for their needs.
Action Plan for IELTS is organised by module: Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. These are presented in the same order as the actual IELTS test. Each of the four modules begins with a clear introduction, which gives full details of what to expect in that part of the IELTS test and what is tested. There is also an overview of the different question types for Listening and Reading, and an explanation of the marking criteria for Writing and Speaking.
Each part of each module gives examples of the IELTS Listening and Reading question types, and the Writing and Speaking tasks. The Writing section of the book is organised according to the marking criteria for this module. The criteria are illustrated with short exercises, so students can see exactly what the IELTS examiner is looking for and decide how best to approach these parts of the IELTS test. The Speaking section of the book provides a step-by-step guide to the three parts of the IELTS Speaking test.
