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 there, I'm Asiya! Based in London, I help people from all over the world prepare for the IELTS exam and access higher education in the UK.

Eight years ago I lived in Kazakhstan and studying in the UK was my dream. Back then I managed to achieve 7.5 in the IELTS Academic exam at the first attempt and was accepted by the university of my choice.

Since then, I have completed my master's degree in London with distinction, worked at one of the UK’s largest banks, and co-founded Fastrack Education, the consultancy that helps others achieve their dreams.

Having dedicated the last two years to researching the IELTS exam, I have learned a great deal about how to tackle it best (and scored 8.5 myself). During this time, I have been honoured to teach over two thousand students via my online courses and I will be happy to see you on one of them too.

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.
