Taking Band 7 students to Band 8-9 in IELTS Speaking.
This course is focused on demonstrating natural, idiomatic and grammatically-advanced English language skills which will impress the IELTS examiner.
Idiomatic/Expressive Language to impress them:
Instead of spending a lot of money, we SPLASH OUT!
Rather than tolerating something annoying, we…. PUT UP WITH it.
We aren’t just happy --> we’re over the moon!
Linking devices to make them say wow:
When we want to tell the examiner additional information, we don’t say furthermore! NO!– We say on top of that!
If we want to contrast views, we can say… but at the same time.. or mind you.. ( The examiner will be amazed when you use something like mind you in your answer!)
Regarding -> but as far as _______ goes, ….
Such as ______ -> the likes of ______.
Grammar to make them do a double-take:
Third conditional is a breeze! -> If I hadn’t shown you the third conditional, you might’ve not used it in your test!
Creative connecting -> You’ll be just as impressed as the examiner!
Are you ready to dive in and actually see some answers that will blow the examiner away?!!
