Academic Writing for IELTS
This page is designed to improve your skills for academic writing for IELTS. In other words, it is for students who need to write an essay for the Academic Module of IELTS.
However, this page is also helpful for students who are preparing to write an essay for task 2 of the IELTS General Training module.
The Academic Writing module consists of two IELTS essay tasks.
In task 1, you will be asked to examine a chart or diagram. You will then write a 150-word essay that summarises the key features of the figure.
In IELTS essay task 2, you will be asked to write another essay. The second essay is a written response to a statement or question. The essay for task 2 should contain a minimum of 250 words.
For both writing tasks, the essay question or statement is provided for you in the IELTS exam booklet.
For the General Training Module of IELTS, students write a letter for task one.
Task 2 of the IELTS General Training Module is the same format as the Academic Module. It is a written response type essay.
Each one of our practice tests includes tasks 1 and 2 for the Academic Writing Module. Most important, our practice tests include high-level model answers and teacher's comments.
