Following on from yesterday's advice about doing the easy things well, let's think about some of the 'easy' aspects of the IELTS test:
- Speaking part 1: Have you mastered the art of giving short, simple answers without hesitation? Have a look at this lesson to see some useful examples.
- Listening section 1: Can you get 10 out of 10 correct answers? If you can't, you need to do more work on this section before you worry about sections 2, 3 and 4.
- Writing task 1 introductions: If you've done enough practice, you should find it easy to write task 1 introductions. Use the method in this lesson.
- Writing task 2 introductions and conclusions: Practise writing introductions like this and conclusions like this.
My tip: become good at these 'easy' parts of the test before you move on to anything more difficult.
