Product Description

 

IELTS Target 6.5: Preparation for IELTS Academic

IELTS Target 6.5 is aimed at students entering IELTS study at intermediate level. The main focus of preparation is the IELTS Academic examination, therefore this book is ideal for those seeking to gain accreditation for university admissions or for immigration purposes. The combined IELTS Target 6.5 Course Book and Workbook teaches language competencies, rather than focusing solely on exam preparation.

The course consists of three four-unit sections that take the student from an intermediate to advanced level. Each unit focuses on developing vocabulary and key language skills in all four areas – speaking, listening, reading and writing. The Workbook provides additional practice to help consolidate learning. By the end of the course, students will be working with texts and language at an advanced level.

Each unit consists of five modules:

  1. Speaking and Vocabulary: This prepares students for the type of interaction they can expect with the examiner in the Speaking test. The vocabulary selected is that most frequently encountered during the speaking exam.
  2. Listening: This module is in two parts. The first part engages students in a topic and pre-teaches key vocabulary, before focusing on a key skill or particular IELTS exam technique. The second part practises the skill.
  3. Reading: As with the Listening Module.
  4. Writing: This deals with both parts of the Writing test, each unit focusing on a different writing skill or writing technique. There is a focus on guided writing, with model compositions for all writing tasks.
  5. Consolidation and Exam Practice: The first part revises the speaking focus and vocabulary in the first module. The second part practises listening, reading or writing skills under exam-type conditions.

The course also includes end-of-section review material.

Reviews

“Deal(s) with the nitty-gritty of what learners must do to raise their band levels to university standards.”

“What I noticed and liked immediately about this material was how it goes straight to the heart of skills teaching.”
