IELTS Writing Clinic

Welcome to the IELTS Writing Clinic!

IELTS students have particular problems with the writing part of the test, so the aim is to help you with that.

In the writing clinic we'll send regular short exercises which could be on things such as writing an essay plan, analysing a question, or finding common grammar errors. 

The aim is for it to be interactive so you can post your responses or just do them yourself. 

I will then post answers so you can see how you did. 

In order to get involved and be notified of new exercises into your inbox, sign up to the newsletter on the right (scroll down if you are on mobile). [You don't need to sign up if you are already signed up to the newsletter].

The first exercise is below - it's about planning and brainstorming for essays.
