I tell my students that they need to work on two things:
- Exam techniques: My aim on this blog is to show you how to approach the IELTS test. If you have 'a method for everything', you'll be well-prepared and confident.
- English: Of course, exam techniques won't help you to get a high score if your English is only at beginner or intermediate level. You'll also need to learn more English words and phrases, and you'll need to do lots of practice.
How confident do you feel about your progress in the two areas above? Are you improving in each area, or are you struggling with one of them?
