IELTS Writing Task 1: Handling a 2-Diagram Task #413

Sat, Nov 21, 16:45-17:45 JST

For some test takers IELTS Academic Writing Task 1, describing data, is an unfamiliar exercise. Some of us are slightly uncomfortable with graphs and charts, so tasks that have 2 diagrams can be challenging. In this workshop we will work through some activities designed to help test takers develop techniques to deal with this task type.

IELTS Speaking: Teaching English Holistically #532

Sat, Nov 21, 11:55-12:20 JST

Students in Japan spend a lot of time and energy studying for various exams during their educational journeys. In particular, language ability tests such as the IELTS are often quite intimidating for second language learners and even native-level speakers. In this workshop, we shall analyse the IELTS band descriptors for speaking and discuss some strategies and techniques that language teachers can employ in their routine classes to help students improve their IELTS scores.
