IELTS Study Tips and Skills

 

Comments

Hi ngocyenbg,

We don't have any materials designed to prepare you specifically for the TOEFL test, though our IELTS and grammar sections could certainly be helpful in general. If you do an internet search for 'free TOEFL preparation', I expect you'll find lots of online resources.

Good luck!

Hello everybody!
I am a new member here. Please tell me whether a candidate with CELTA is eligible for IELTS examiner or not?

Hello Parmeshwar,

Welcome to LearnEnglish! I'd suggest that you check with the IELTS organisation to get an answer to this question. You might find some useful information in the For Teachers section of TakeIELTS.

hi good morning is there any video or film to help me skills learning English thanks

Hello kush1,

I'd recommend our Word on the Street and Britain is Great series. Be sure to use the transcripts to help you learn new vocabulary and the exercises to check your understanding!

Hello nurul slam noman,

Welcome to LearnEnglish! My first suggestion would be to explore the site.  Use the links at the top of the page to go to different sections and see what kinds of materials are available.  Get a feel for the level of difficulty of different sections so you can see what will be most useful to you at the moment.

Then start with something that is not too high a level. Many users find Elementary Podcasts Series Three a good place to start.  Work through the episodes, and remember that you can use the transcript to help you, or to read and listen to at the same time after you have done the exercises. As you work, it's important to keep a vocabulary notebook. Organise it by topic ('work', 'family', 'food', etc.) and add words and phrases to it as you go through the material.  Test yourself regularly to see if you remember the words.

Finally, practise English every day, even if it's only for 10 minutes. You can study the vocabulary you've recorded, listen to an Elementary Podcasts episode again, or if you have a friend who is also learning English, practise speaking with them. You can also practise by yourself, just speaking English when you are alone at home or at work.  This kind of practice is great for developing fluency in speaking, so that when you need to use English in the 'real' world you are ready and confident.

I hope those suggestions are helpful.

Best wishes,

Hello everyone,
Yesterday I came across two words while reading a story,
The words are "Awesome &Awful" these two words are from the same root 'Awe' but are exactly opposite in meaning. I want to know why we use awesome for good and awful for bad??
