Why I made this course
I've noticed a difference between students who write well and those who don’t. The students who write well are calmer and happier as the exams get closer. They show less nerves in the classroom because they know that whatever the topic will be, they will succeed. They sit the exam knowing that 25% of their total score is ‘in the bank’ (guaranteed). No stress. No panic.
But not everyone has the concentration or dedication to develop their writing skills over a long period of time. Lots of my students aren’t familiar enough with English to write well. And they don't dedicate enough time to practising reading and writing in English.
For this type of student, I've created a plan B.
Instead of asking my students to read and write lots of texts, I ask them to memorise a few particular expressions to use in every letter writing task. I teach them where and how they can upgrade their words and sentences. I also teach them to think about each writing task from the examiner's perspective. What does the examiner want to see? How can the student deliver it?
The result is this course. It’s a combination of strategies, grammar, vocabulary and tips based on what I’ve seen succeed and what I’ve seen fail over the years.
