Cover - Must-know words and phrases for IELTS Academic Writing Task 1

IELTS Academic Writing Task 1 involves writing a report describing a chart, a map, a diagram or a table. As such, it will require specific vocabulary that we do not use in everyday life.

In this PDF guide, you will find the must-know words and phrases for typical situations that you will encounter in IELTS Writing Task 1 essays: how to open an introduction, make a comparison, present figures, describe a trend, etc. 

More complex words are accompanied by an example sentence, or sentences, that show you different ways of using the same word.

Memorise whole phrases and sentence structures in order to use your new vocabulary flexibly. 

That is an underlying principle of writing a Band 7+ IELTS essay.

Hi! I'm Asiya!

Originally from Kazakhstan, I moved to London in 2011 to study for my master’s degree and have called this city home ever since.

After graduating with distinction, I worked in one of the UK’s largest banks and eventually set up FasTrack Education, a company that helps other people who are, as I once was, seeking to pass the IELTS exam and study in the UK. 

Today my IELTS score is 8.5. But back in 2010 I managed to achieve 7.5 at the first attempt with just over a week of preparation and without ever visiting an English-speaking country. And this is possible for you too. 

It has been three years since I started my IELTS research. I read books, take practice tests and real exams, speak to students and former IELTS examiners in order to find the best way to pass this exam. During this time, I have learned a great deal and have been honoured to teach thousands of students via my online courses and over 11 million via free YouTube lessons. 

Let me help you pass your exam. Ready? Let's get started!

As the Title says !

This e-book is full of valuable information, well designed, and straight to the point. I highly recommend it. The author assumes that the reader is already familiar with the exam's task.
