IELTS strategies

Activities which focus on developing strategies for reading and listening tasks.

These classroom activities focus on developing strategies that IELTS students will find useful in attempting the various reading and listening tasks.

I’ve referred to the activities as pre-reading and pre-listening as their aim is to help train students in ways of approaching different question types before actually reading or listening to the texts. In particular the activities raise awareness of the value of prediction and grammar in recording accurate answers.

The following activities were demonstrated and discussed recently in a series of 'IELTS clinics' in Brighton, Eastbourne and Bournemouth. Many of the participants gave interesting and useful suggestions from their own classroom experience.
