According to most teachers, Headings Match questions are the easiest in the IELTS reading test - you just read the first and last line of each paragraph and then match the heading, right? WRONG! If you are using this (terrible) method, there is no way you will be able to answer more than 50% of the questions correctly in the test. Learn a better way today with Juliet.

Speaking • Using Contrast Clauses and having good intonation
Yes, this week it is two for the price of one in as Nick goes through TWO key speaking skills for Part One. First, you will learn how to use contrast clauses effectively in Speaking Part One. Then, you will find out what “chunking” is and how it can help you to improve your intonation (which is a key component of your Pronunciation score).
A summary is a short paraphrase of the main ideas in a passage. For example, if I was ging to summarise the film Titanic, I would say: “The boat hits an iceberg and sinks”. IELTS summaries are usually not as short, and they have missing words that you have to fill! Find out how in today’s lesson with Nick.
Want to practice your speaking but don’t have a partner? Then come to our open session today where we will match you with a fellow student and provide you with questions to work through together. Plus, Nick will be there to supervise and give feedback throughout this fluency session.
Yes, we have a whole lesson devoted to maps – and I am 100% sure that this will be the most popular lesson in the whole course! Today, we will show you the three types of map that can appear in Listening Section 2 and teach you the language you need to be able to follow them well. Hopefully, after the lesson, you will never get lost again!
