It is based on a Ted talk called 8 Secrets of Success. All you need is the video, the picture and the 8 paragraphs below.
The most successful IELTS candidates do lots of practice outside the classroom. A good tip is to find something you are really interested in and practice the four skills within that topic. If you have a love for what you are reading or listening to, you are more likely to stick at it and practice regularly.
There are no tricks to cheat the exam. Manage your time well and set aside some time every day to study and practice. You IELTS test result will be a fair reflection of how much effort you put in.
When you do a practice test or get a piece of homework marked, try to establish your mistakes and weaknesses. Mistakes should be embraced as they are the single best way to improve. Concentrate on your weaknesses and they will soon become strengths.
At times you will suffer from a lack of motivation, everyone does. Tell as many of your friends and family as possible you are doing the IELTS test, and more importantly, tell them how much work you have to do. When you start to slip behind they will motivate you.
Many students worry that they don’t have enough general knowledge to complete the test. IELTS is not a knowledge test, it is an English test. All of the questions are designed so that most people will have enough ideas to give a good answer. Also, don’t worry about the examiner’s opinion. They don’t have to agree with you.
Always be looking for ways to get better. Are there English speakers in your city? Have a chat with them. Do you like watching TV and movies? Watch as many English shows as you can. Do you enjoy reading? Find a blog or news site to practice everyday.
Help your classmates as much as you can. This will help you practice your speaking and listening and also establish your strengths and weaknesses. If there is something a classmate needs help with, point it out and try to help. They will probably help you too.
There will be times when you feel like IELTS is all too much. Don’t worry and keep going. Talk to a classmate or teacher about your difficulties and they are sure to help you. Don’t give up.
