Introducing IELTS Writing Task 2 - Expert Preparation. This book focusses on one of the most important and difficult tasks for many IELTS test-takers worldwide.
The approach of this book is unique. It introduces essay writing frameworks based on 13-14 sentences, which when followed, enable students to write an essay which is cohesive, complex and most importantly addresses the IELTS examination criteria. In particular, the included frameworks help students develop the skills necessary to identify specific question types, conceptualise topic sentences and supporting statements and to formulate more complex contrast sentences within paragraphs. Few textbooks on the market provide such clear and concise frameworks for constructing essays specifically geared to IELTS.
In terms of content, IELTS Writing Task 2 - Expert Preparation is as much about planning as it is about writing a response. Focussing on the different question types used in the IELTS test, this book outlines the essay planning process for each before featuring entire essays broken down using the outlined frameworks. For each question type, the text includes essays indicative of Band 9 responses (the highest possible score). These are excellent model texts, particularly since they make use of the ten unique `grammar points' presented in the final pages of the book.
Overall, being both concise and practical, IELTS Writing Task 2 - Expert Preparation is an excellent resource for classroom-based IELTS courses or students' self-study. By taking a fresh and detailed approach, this book demystifies essay writing, allowing both students and educators alike to very quickly understand what is involved in achieving more improved IELTS Task 2 writing scores.
