Hey! I'm happy to be back again, this time
with last video in the set of "Top 13

Tips" about different modules of IELTS;
and today we will be talking about the Writing

module. But before we dive in, I'd like to
introduce you to my new Twitter account,

which I will be frequently using for
various announcements and currently I am

working on a huge project, which will be
free for you guys, and which will be in

real time, and obviously dedicated to
IELTS.

But before announcing it, I'm waiting for
more people to subscribe, because I want

to announce it efficiently, and because I
want more people to know about it. So,

just go and check it out. And lastly, I
have linked in the description box down

below, as always, all the books that I used.
which are completely free for download,

and I guess, they will be useful for you
in the preparation for the Writing section.

Okay, so the first tip is to analyze and
actually take some time to think and to

take notes about what you will be
writing. You know, the cost of rushing

forward and thinking that you must start
writing straight away, when were given the

task, is too high. Because it is essential
for you to stop and think, planning

beforehand, because, you know, it
requires you to be a professional

journalist to compose your thoughts
instantly and to know what you will be

writing in your essay. Let alone in
English.

The second one is learn the structure of
your essay beforehand and basically

disregarding of the type of module that
you're dealing with whether it's

Academic or General, it doesn't matter.
Because actually in the writing task

chances are the most likely you will be
dealing with four paragraphs, which means

first - you introduce the topic, you give a
brief overview, and then you divide your

ideas into four paragraphs, and then just
end it with a nice conclusion. Remember,

the second task in writing is worth
twice as much at the first task, and that

is why you should really put some effort
in the second task. But you also need to

always start with Task 1, never
skipping it, because the Task 1 is

actually easier, and it helps you to get
on track, so that Task 2 comes more

smoothly. Then, manage your time. Practice
speed writing, and actually try to spend

approximately 20 minutes on the first
task and 40 minutes of the second task.

Pay attention to the number of words
you're writing, because he will lose

marks if you write less than 150 words
in Task 1, and 250 words in Task 2.

Also, don't try to count word by word
what you wrote unless you have plenty of

time left, because it's more efficient to
count the number of words in your line

and then to multiply it by the number of
lines in your essay. But better, learn to

recognize how do you 150 words and 250
words look like on the answer sheet in

your handwriting, so that you won't need
to count them. And I have linked down

below the actual answer sheet for
writing so you can download it, print it

to have the best experience in your
preparation. Okay, next one. Do not copy

anything from the task. I mean, of course,
you can copy some words but never the

whole sentence. This will lower your
score significantly. And instead always

paraphrase. However, do not try to
paraphrase your ideas in the essay. I

mean there are students who try to
introduce one idea. A single one. But

paraphrasing it differently into the two
or even three paragraphs. Just do not

do it. If you are introducing an idea
make it final and then go to the next

paragraph, talking about something else.
In order to score high in writing you

will need to show your advanced skills
of eloquent writing. And for this you must

learn as many synonims
as possible, because it will make your essay

pleasant to read. And I will be preparing
the next video about the vocabulary

for writing in IELTS and different
synonyms. So please take some time to

actually learn synonyms because the more
of them you use, the better score

you will achieve. Okay, Writing is the last
module and probably you will be quite

exhausted by them, craving and break. But
do not fall for this trap, because

minutes of postponing and delay can cost
you valuable points. Instead, try to use

some time when an examiner hands in the
booklets and tasks to take a break and

to meditate. Maybe, to clear your mind, to
think about something that relaxes you,

and just try to forget everything
connected to the previous actions. It

doesn't any longer matter anything. At
any cost

avoid contractions such as "don't", "won't"
"doesn't", "can't" and informal language.

Instead, use formal language, pay
attention to your grammar, punctuation

and spelling. Because obviously if you're
making mistakes you're losing points. And

vice versa, you will gain some points if
you have sophisticated grammar

incorporated. And the last one, as always do
not try to memorize any model answers,

because the examiners are actually trained
to recognize them, and you will lose your

score. Also, you will lose marks if you
write your ideas in bullet points, not

in full. Okay, guys, that's all. If you need
to ask any question, you can directly

contact me by a different social media
that I have linked down below in the

description. And as always, I will be
delighted

to see you again here. Bye!
