Understanding all the words in the Listening test
Remember, listening effectively does not mean you need to understand every single word you hear. In fact, you should not even try. When native speakers listen, they pick up on the most important words and phrases which carry meaning, and that is what you should try to do. Do not panic if you do not understand each word!

Practise this now using Road to IELTS (http://goo.gl/nYFHRS). Road to IELTS contains dozens of #IELTS #Listening activities and six full IELTS Listening mock test papers.

#‎IELTS‬ ‪#‎FAQ‬ : "give me ielts tips plzzz"
We often get this "question", but when it gets asked, there's not much we can do without knowing more about your level of English. Familiarise yourself with the IELTS test format and learn how to answer common question types. Practise using English as much as possible. In the one or two months before the test, try to use English properly. At least ask us to "give me IELTS tips, please!"

Whether you are taking ‪#‎IELTS‬ ‪#‎Academic‬ or ‪#‎General‬ Training, you will need to write a 250 word essay in the ‪#‎Writing‬ Part 2. You will perform much better if you understand what the examiner is looking for — and then deliver it.

Test day advice for the #Reading test, from Road to IELTS:
1) Do not forget that you must write your answers directly on your answer sheet. You will not be given extra time to do this at the end of the 60-minute Reading test.

2) Remember that your written answers need to be grammatically accurate and spelled correctly. You will lose marks for incorrect spelling.

3) Think about skipping difficult questions and coming back to them later. If you do this, make sure you highlight the questions you skip so that you can find them again.

Thanks Anna Keren, from Israel, for her feedback from using ROAD TO IELTS Academic module (one month subscription) for her IELTS preparation.

"When I decided that I was going to take the IELTS test, I started to look for some material to prepare for the coming test. Although I took the British Council preparation test, I think what contributed to achieving the desired result the first time is the time I spent working at home, using Road to IELTS. I improved my Listening result from 5.5 (before using Road to IELTS) to 8.
I would strongly recommend using Road to IELTS in order to improve your scores, especially in Reading and Listening."

Overall band score - 7.0
Listening - 8.0
Writing - 6.5
Reading - 6.5
Speaking - 7.0

What should I do in my one-minute ‪#‎Speaking‬ preparation time?
Use the one-minute preparation time to make notes or bullet points before you make your short presentation. You can then look at the card and use these ideas as a guide. This gives your talk a good structure, and leads you naturally to signpost your talk, e.g. "first...", "another thing...", "the main thing...", "finally..."
For example, if your question is about whether it is better to access news online than on TV, you might write:
- Online: more sources / perspectives
- Online: instant access 24/7
- BUT can become obsessed, waste time
- TV news: more reliable
- TV news: can watch with others and discuss
Having these points on paper will make you much more confident when you start speaking. Learn more about ‪#‎IELTS‬ from our 30-day IELTS Tips app: http://goo.gl/yzPBTw
