3 Common IELTS Grammar Mistakes
Oct 20, 2020 Episode 30
Shelly Cornick and Nick Lone

Episode Notes

I know, I know, I know - not everybody likes grammar! In fact, even Nick hated it when he first started teaching. The problem, though, is that 25% of your score for writing and listening will be awarded based on your sentence structures. There are many places where students can make errors in the writing test, but day upon day, Nick and I see the same 3 common IELTS mistakes again and again. What are they? Well, you will need to listen to find out! You can find the show notes for this episode at  http://blog.myieltsclassroom.com/3-common-ielts-grammar-mistakes/

In this episode, we will discuss:

  1. why English people are not aware of English grammar rules (!)
  2. why students have problems making contrast sentences
  3. the importance of subject / verb agreement 
  4. why plural nouns are so useful in IELTS essays
