Book Description

30 Sep 1999 0521629314 978-0521629317 Student
Insight into IELTS offers comprehensive preparation for the IELTS examination. It develops skills, language and familiarity with the test format for each paper progressively: exam-type exercises are a regular feature of the course, and it finishes with a complete practice test. It explores the exam thoroughly, paper by paper, and its flexible structure allows teachers or students working alone to pinpoint exactly aspects of the exam they most need to study. The course also prepares students for study abroad by introducing them to the types of communication tasks which they are likely to meet in an English speaking study environment. A separate section of supplementary material provides activities for use as homework or extra classroom practice. Insight into IELTS is equally suitable for use as a course book in the classroom or at home: a detailed introduction to the exam, together with a thorough answer key make it easy to use as self-study material.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great coursebook to help you pass the test 7 April 2001
By A Customer
Vanessa Jakeman and Clare McDowell are onto a winner with this one! This is the first coursebook for IELTS. It is divided into the 4 skill areas and gives practice and teaches about all the different exam questions for both General Training and the Academic module. Very accessible, it can be used by students studying alone and by teachers in the classroom. It has exam tips and at the end of the book is a practice exam to help you get an idea of how you would go in the real thing. If it has a weakness, it is in the skill of writing where little explanation is given on how to write the different types of writing. This is particularly so for question 1 of the academic module. However, overall a sound book if you are looking for IELTS test preparation. Recommended.
