Prepare properly for IELTS

Hi guys,

This video is a free video lesson about how to prepare for IELTS. It is posted on my home page but I feel many students are not finding it. So, here is your chance to watch it and think about the points given.

In the video, it mentions about knowing your level of English. Let me explain:

  • Band 5 = frequent errors
  • Band 6 = some errors
  • Band 7 = few errors
  • Band 8 = most sentences are error free

I am sure you all know how many errors you make on average. You don’t need a teacher to tell you. You can use spell check and grammar check in ms word doc. You should also review your vocab frequently and your understanding of grammar tenses. You can also review your range of grammar tenses by recording your speaking answers and playing it back to check. Or writing a task 2 essay and underlining each grammar tense you use.

IELTS Video Lesson: How to Prepare



  1. Dear Liz,

    Thank you for your helpful videos and blog content.

    After doing many practice tends I began to notice a trend. I make most of my mistakes because I do not write complete answers or do not use the exact words according to the books I have used (Barron’s for example).

    An example could be the following: a sentence completion questions where the answer, to me is “exhaust,” but the back of the book says the only possible answers is “exhaust fumes.” Another would be writing “every month” instead of “once a month.” Additionally, I also got a question wrong by writing “1800s” (which was in the same format as the rest of the answers in the box) but the back of the book explained that the answer was “nineteenth century.” Perhaps there are subtle differences I am not perceiving. I would appreciate some guidance as to whether there are set answers from which the examiner does not diverge or does the examiner actually take these answers into consideration. Any help is much appreciated!

    Thank you so much for all your help.
