How to prepare for IELTS using these questions
Set aside an hour of your time and sit down in a quiet place. Spend the first 40 minutes writing an essay (writing task 2). Use the first 5 minutes to plan your essay, and then follow your plan and write the introduction, body and conclusion of your essay for the next 30 minutes. Check that you have written about 250-280 words. Spend the last 5 minutes proofreading what you wrote. Check your grammar and spelling.
Next, spend the following 20 minutes writing your letter (writing task 1), and remember to reserve 2 minutes to proofread it at the end.
