Question about IELTS – How to improve my English?

I’ve gotten a lot of questions from students and readers, and many of them ask this one question: “How do I improve my English?”

Well, this is a very very general and broad question. The first step to take is to first clearly define your problem. There may be many different problems, but you should try to tackle each one at a time.

For example, let’s say it’s difficult to write the IELTS Task 1 essay. What part is difficult? Interpreting the graph? Organizing the essay? Writing the actual sentences that link well? Using varied vocabulary? Writing at least 150 words within 20 minutes?

When you have a specific problem, then it’s easier to find the solution and fix it. So if you have a question about a specific problem, please ask in the comments section below or email me on my About Me page and I’ll try my best to answer and help you.
