What does the IELTS writing examiner want to see?
Thursday 11th April at 10am BST
About the webinar
In this webinar, MINDSET for IELTS co-author Greg Archer considers how learners can become more familiar with the public Band Descriptors for the IELTS writing test, thereby enabling them to produce scripts that are more likely to meet the right requirements and deliver in the right areas – those which the examiner is looking to give credit for. Using examples to illustrate how a candidate’s score might be improved in a range of areas, we will explore activities and methods that enable teachers to raise awareness of the marking criteria while at the same time developing the language skills that students should aim to improve, and then to include in their essays.
