Hi Simon

It is the interesting comment from you.
I have been living in Australia for 15 years and working in a medical setting with native English speakers. I agree with your idea of immersion and culture to gain basic general English skills for daily life; However, the IELTS is more complicated than that. We require having an enoumus amount of vocabulary in a wide range of topics which we do not use in daily life and different technics to tackle all questions in limited time.
Well, I hope we all improve our English skills and achieve our individual goals.

Have a lovely day

From my prospective, this is a good piece f advice. Because, in this way, we can improve our English much faster than other way. And this could be more easy if someone adapt the culture for learning other languages. For example, if you want to bethe singer or an artist than definitely first we have to understand its primary ethics and this can only be possible by immersing in it. Similarly,if we understand the basic of language than gradually we take interest to learn more about English. Consequently, our mind familiarise the vocabulary and grammar in an advanced level.

The time, when I start writing task 2 I go back to the book and read sample answer or suft Internet for initial ideas.

My quire asking, which one is more important?

1. Taking notes my own which we say brain storming.

2. Reading sample answers from book or websites.



Google the topic for news articles will provide the ideas and topic vocabulary you need. For example googling "dress code employer women".
