This was a great week for the IELTS advanced class.
We learned a whole bunch of new and useful grammar for our task 2 academic writing, with a special focus on:
- it- and what- clefts,
- academic adverbials, and
- alternative phrases to express conditionals.
In the Thursday class, students wrote personal checklists of grammar points they wanted to include in their task 2 essays, and then used these checklists while they were doing their tasks. All the students in the IELTS advanced class managed to include at least 8 of the 10 points we included on the checklist, albeit it with some small mistakes in the cleft structures.
Great work guys!
