IELTS Brand 9 Vocabulary Secrets
There are two parts of the IELTS exam in which the test asks some questions and you must create independent responses: the Speaking Test and the Writing Test. Many people do not realise that the IELTS system uses a group of ten key topics to formulate all of these questions in Speaking and Writing. If you understand these ten topics, and above all if you know some advanced vocabulary on each topic to use in your Speaking and Writing answers, you can make a huge difference to your IELTS Band score, even if your English contains some mistakes.
This book introduces you to these ten IELTS topics. Each of our ten modules summarises the various elements of a topic, and gives an example Academic Task 2 Writing Task exactly like the ones you will see in the exam. It also explains how to answer the writing Task. Each module then teaches a large amount of vocabulary related to the module topic, contained in a Band 9 model essay so that you see how the words are used in IELTS Writing.
Each module has a clear-to-follow definition of each word or phrase, and a further example of how to use these topic words again in the Speaking part of the test, so that you are ready to use the vocabulary in both Writing and Speaking.
If you are not yet familiar with the different types of IELTS Academic Writing Task 2 essays, please start by reading our ‘Overview’ from the table of Contents. If you have already read our other books on this concept, please go straight to the Topic Modules to begin expanding your IELTS vocabulary.
