چگونه دونا آیلتس 8.5 گرفت
What helped Dona get Band 8.5 in IELTS
Today I am happy to share the tips we received from Dona, a Sri-Lankan IELTS candidate, who got an amazing Band 8.5 (her Reading and Listening were both Band 9!)
“Just a few tips I would like to share.
For reading, I found it very helpful to read practice articles, those in past papers or even from other sources such as newspapers and textbooks. A lot of consistent reading and understanding any given articles goes a long way.
For listening, I think it is helpful to listen to a few recordings to practice and get into the flow and speed of the speaker. Keep an ear out for key words in the questions that would help you identify the answer.
For speaking, the most helpful thing to do is to keep speaking and interacting with people in English. Try to speak in a consistent flow, adding more complex words often. Try not to break your sentences and pause to think or hesitate. Keep speaking.
For writing, try to plan your essay. Allocate a certain number of words to each paragraph you plan on writing and have an idea of what the main idea of each paragraph will be.”
