Best IELTS Writing Plan for Academic Task 1

Power of WordsI always encourage my students to adopt a systematic approach to their IELTS Writing.  I believe that this is necessary in order to get the best IELTS score possible.

Here’s the ‘Academic IELTS Writing Task 1 plan’ I give my students:

.

Academic IELTS Writing Task 1 plan

.

1.  Look at the task.  What is the topic?  What do you have to do?

.

2.  Decide what the time period is (look at the axis).  Is it

  • finished?
  • not finished?
  • future (projected figures)?

Think about the verb tenses you will use.

.

3.  What is the topic?  Write a sentence to introduce the information.

e.g.  The graph shows………………..

.

4.  Write a general sentence to show the trend. e.g.

Generally,…………

In general,………..

.

5.  Give a more in-depth description.  Give the details.

.

6.  Write a sentence to conclude your writing.  e.g.

To sum up,……………………..

To summarise,…………………

In conclusion,………………….

.

7.  Check your writing.

.

Print off these guidelines and follow them when doing practice tests until they become habit.

.

Here’s to the best IELTS score possible!
