How to Prepare for IELTS
IELTS stands for International English Language Testing System. You will have IELTS test if you want to go to the foreign universities. IELTS has four parts. They are Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking.
To start with, we will prepare for listening. Maybe we will buy some IELTS Listening tapes in the bookstores. Then we need to train our Listening skills for two weeks. During these days, listening to the tapes is the most important. If we can listen 150 words per minute, we will be successful.
Next, let us see the Reading. In three weeks, we should read three passages of IELTS every day. We had better train the skill of the fast reading when we do the exercises. Our aim is that we can read 70 words per minute.
Then we will talk about the Writing. We should learn some important skills in the IELTS Writing books first. After that, we may practise writing some essays with some models.
The last one is the Speaking. It will need very long exercise. Every day we should try to talk in English with friends and the foreign teachers. Finally, we will find that speaking English is as easy as speaking Chinese.
