How to Improve Your IELTS

According to a Cambridge Assessment study, it takes over 200 hours of studying to improve your English by one level. In the case of higher IELTS bands, it can take over 1,000 hours of learning. As busy professionals, we lack the time for this kind of dedicated study in our busy lives. While our availability and natural language-learning talent varies from person to person, there are techniques to improve your IELTS writing skills while also sustaining your commitments to other responsibilities. This article will explain how to target your weakest areas, thus helping you prepare for the IELTS essay writing sections without derailing your life.

Whether you are taking the General or Academic IELTS, the first writing task is 150 words long, while the second task is 250 words. The key to enhance your score is to make your written English sound natural to a native speaker. While it is essential to spell words correctly as part of this, you should also use an assorted vocabulary to improve your IELTS writing score.

English has over a million words. While most English conversations use around 5,000 words, the average English speaker knows about 20,000 words, and a university-educated English speaker knows closer to 40,000. To convince IELTS examiners that you are excellent at English, you must diversify your vocabulary.


There are two straightforward ways to improve your vocabulary. The first is to read challenging material every day. If you are studying for the Academic IELTS, consider reading The Economist, whereas The New York Times or The Daily Telegraph are better for the General IELTS. When you do so, write down every unknown word you encounter. Once you reach 15 or 20 words, look each of them up in a dictionary and write the definitions down. If you prioritize reading material similar to what is likely to appear on your IELTS writing test, this focused studying can improve your score faster than haphazardly learning words.

The second way to directly improve your vocabulary is to use words you already know. For example, the IELTS Academic Writing section focuses on interpreting scientific data. Since you know this is the case, consider using a thesaurus to look up words like chart and table. You will discover more complex alternatives such as delineate, characterize, depict, and portray. Using words like these on your test will help you rapidly improve your writing score without needing to learn 40,000 new words.

Whichever method you use to compile a list of new words, be sure to review it regularly. You need to know the definitions of the words and how to spell them correctly, and the best way to accomplish that is by using them in sentences until you’re completely comfortable with each one.

At this stage, it can be highly beneficial to have someone else check the sentences you’re writing, as you want them to be smooth and sound natural. Ideally, this means finding a native English speaker to read them and give you feedback. Helppo is the ideal place to find this type of help, as it has multiple advanced IELTS tutors who graduated from prestigious universities.

You can meet with them at your convenience, enabling your studying to fit into your busy schedule. A few of our tutors are available from 7 pm to 2 am in Hong Kong China time every Monday to Friday. They can also walk you through IELTS writing exercises and craft lessons specifically designed for you.
