Insect Blog: Develop your vocabulary and reading

Hi guys,

I’d like to introduce you to a new blog about insects. It’s written by a guy called Chris who is an entomologist, which is a person who studies insects.

As you know insects is a topic that has appeared in IELTS reading quite a few times and is very difficult because of the academic vocabulary involved. So, this blog can help you become more familiar with this topic. Some of the posts  on Chris’s blog are very high level with a lot of technical language for other entomologists. However, other posts are written for people without knowledge of insects and are very interesting to read, particularly for band score 7, 8 and 9 level students.

The aim of his blog is to share information and teach people about insects that pollinate and insects that are pests. Here’s a link: pests and pollinators by Chris

News: Posting Writing No Longer Available

I will no longer be able to provide feedback on writing on this blog. Due to the overwhelming number of students posting on my blog, I will now be stopping any comments on writing. I was commenting on writing in my free time but I no longer have time to deal with the large number of posts put up by students.

Instead, once a month I will invite students to post their essays to an essay question which I will choose. I will comment only on the first three essays posted which I feel are worthy or potentially worthy of band 7. I will do this at the end of each month.

You can still improve your writing by working through my free writing lessons, tips and videos:

You can also learn a lot from reading the comments I have previously given to other students.

All the best

Liz
