6 How much can I improve my score?

In general a student who is a lower level (IELTS 4-6) can improve by more than a student who is already a high level (7+). Some students can improve dramatically (up to 2 bands). All students can improve – the course shows you exactly how.
7 How does the course help me to improve?
Answer: There is a Module for each type of IELTS essay. The Module shows you every stage of the process. This means that by the end of each Module you know exactly what to do at each stage.
Important: I also show you how to quickly think of ideas for you essays. Many students find it difficult to do this – in fact, with a bit of practice, it is not very difficult at all – you will learn how!
8 What kind of material does the course include?
Answer: All the Modules are based around a single IELTS question.
The course uses video, audio, downloadable pdfs, quizzes, dictations and other types of exercise to help you fully understand the complete writing process – from reading the question to producing a well-written and well-argued essay.
9 Why do you use different media?
Answer: Using a variety of media for different parts of the Module makes it easier to explain every step of the process clearly. This is essential if you are going to be able to use the method. The exercises in each Module help you to practise the method.
10 How long does it take to finish the course?
Answer: Of course, it depends how much time you spend on the course. It can be finished in 3 weeks. There is a limit of 6 weeks because you have to study regularly so that the method is easy for you to use in the exam. If you go too slowly you will not get the best results!
11 At the end of the course, do I have anything to keep?
Answer: Yes. Every Module has downloadable pdfs that you can keep, and which summarise all the main points.
12 Does the course teach me topic language for Task 2 questions?
Answer: No, it does not. This course teaches you a method that you can apply to every topic question.
It does include very useful language and phrases – e.g. for giving opinions, for signposting the structure of the essay or for explaining advantages and disadvantages – but it does not include long lists of topic words for a large range of topics.
In fact, you don’t need a lot of detailed topic vocabulary to write a great essay. For example, if you are writing about the advantages and disadvantages of nuclear power you do not need many words about the nuclear industry.
The course shows you how to use all the language you do know in order to get the best possible mark. This means the course helps you get a better score whatever your general level of English.
13 If I pay for the course and I cannot access the material, what should I do?
Answer: If you have any problems you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org – I can resolve any problems very quickly.
14 Do you guarantee that my IELTS writing band will improve?
Of course not. No-one can guarantee that. However, the vast majority of course users make a big improvement. If you follow the course carefully, I am sure that you will too.
