What is in Task 1 of the general training module?
I am giving IELTS General exam. I want to make sure does Task 1 in general exams include all types of graphs? like pie graph, bar graph, line graph? tables?
OR in Task 1 they include only letters in general exams and graphs are for academic?
kindly clear it.
Why am I not getting IELTS band 7 in my writing?
I am really keen to know what does it really takes to score 7 or more in IELTS writing. I have gone through enough of the material regarding task achievement, coherence etc. etc. Despite of preparing myself for all these I cannot make any thing more than 6.5 in IELTS writing.
I have already attempted the test twice. I scored L-8.5 R-7.5 S-7 and W-6.5 first time and second time I scored L-8.5 R-8.5 S-6.5 and W-6.5.
Both the times by total remain 7.5. I desperately need to score 7 or more in writing and I am seriously worried on what more should I do to achieve that.
Any guidance please?
Please advise me if I did ok in my IELTS General Training Essay.
I just took ielts on 7th Dec in Korea.
I did General one.
you are returning to your country, so you are giving your furniture to your friend. and write a letter to your friend.
-what is a furniture
-why do you think your friend need
-how to pick up a furniture
Science has developed and enables people to live longer. Some people say it is good, whereas others say it will cause problems. Discuss both views.
I worry about task 2.
What I wrote on body paragraphs are:
1- People can enjoy their life with various activities, as there is more time.
-Sick people can not enjoy well, unless there is an advanced science to treat them.
--> I wrote an example from my cousin, who recently passed away at age of 30 due to a cancer.
I described there was no appropriate method to treat him. lack of technology results his death.
If there was a high technology to cure him, he could have survive, and fulfill his life in better way.
2- I wrote the current problems of long life expectancy in japan. (Japan is one of the top 10 countries that has the longest life span) More year to live requires more money to sustain one's life style.
Thus, more senior people in work place, resulting less job opportunity to young candidates.. blah~blah~~blah~
I asked others about how do they think about my contents. Some say its good because I used the real example, but some say I was too focused on medical part of the science.
Personally I thought I did okay... but not sure..
Can I still get band 6 with no essay conclusion?

I Made a Grammar Mistake
In general test IELTS task 1 the letter was about to say thanks for the good management of hotel manager for well arrangements.
i was intended to write "with optimistic face" but i wrote "without optimistic face" by mistake. But the rest of the letter was good and just to the point of the topic.
How marks i will get loose?
Would it impact to all my letter badly?
Beginning Your IELTS Letter
I just want to ask one thing that In the IELTS GT Task 1, normally instructions says that 'Begin your letter with Dear Sir or Madam'.
So should we begin with the same or should we follow the proper format of writing a letter? Which one is the best and correct way?
Need a bit of help as my test dates are very near.
Address and date for IELTS Letter
Today i had written my IELTS test. I have a question in Writing test. My question in Task 1 is they ask me to write a letter for your friend giving some tips for her/him interview.
In that i forgot to write todays date and my address (from address) and just straight away stated as Dear XXXXX, and continue my letter.
so can anyone give me an idea that how many marks i will lose for not writing letter in correct format??
Title for IELTS Letters
We were taught that formal letters should have a formal title which should be underlined when in small case and not underlined if in upper case. From all the examples i have seen here, none has a title. is it IELTS standard not to put title or I'm i not updated?
