Essential tips for IELTS General Training Module

Practice, practice, practice
I have included here a selection of cards for you to practice on. Choose a card, prepare
for 1 minute, writing down the points you will speak about. When you start speaking,
try not to get in trouble – don’t use words unless you know what they mean, don’t use
long complicated sentences where you get lost in words. Try to speak simply and
make it sound interesting.
