These activities use a minimalist approach and need nothing more than a teacher, students, a board and a bit of scrap paper.

Students often complain after an IELTS test that they simply didn’t know WHAT to speak or write about rather than HOW. Why? – because they didn’t know enough about the subject or couldn’t think of anything to say or write at the time. For this reason I often teach IELTS courses on a thematic basis incorporating the skills, language and exam strategies to pass IELTS. 

Themes I’ve chosen for this month are work, science and technology.
