The simple three step process my students use to get a band 7, 8 or 9 in IELTS writing

About IELTS Advantage

IELTS Advantage began as a humble class blog; a way of sharing my lessons with students who couldn’t make it to class. It has quickly grown to become a way of sharing my knowledge with students from every country in the world.

If you think it’s just about IELTS, you are wrong. It’s about improving people’s prospects. I receive emails on a daily basis from people telling me how their lives have changed for the better and how excited they are that they can finally move to the country of their dreams.

If you are a professional hoping to get the right IELTS score to land that dream job, you are in the right place. Within these pages, you will find all the information you need to succeed.

Our main pages link up with the main skills tested, namely Writing Task 1, Writing Task 2, Speaking, Listening and Reading. We also know how important good vocabulary is, so we have a main page for it too. If you are just starting, or a little bit confused about IELTS, our IELTS Preparation page is the perfect place to start.

For those of you who want extra help, we provide the Writing Correction Service and our premium, VIP course, IELTS Writing Academy. Both of these services are in very high demand and there is always a long waiting list to join, but please add your name to the list and we will try and get you in as soon as we can.

I hope that you enjoy using IELTS Advantage. If you like what you see, please feel free to share the site with your friends or write something nice in the comments. I am always working hard to improve the site and I hope that I can bring you even more great stuff in the future.
