What's the plan?
Here's what Rory's got planned for this Masterclass:
18:30 – 18:45
Introduction + Getting to know each other
Join us for an introduction to the event with some English language games to get us ready to share.
18:45 – 19:25
IELTS Writing
  • Writing myths
We will explore and address some popular myths and misconceptions about IELTS writing tasks.

  • Planning and Brainstorming
Here we will try out some strategies for planning and generating ideas for our IELTS writing tasks.

  • Making Connections
In this section, we will make connections between our ideas and get them into a logical order.

  • Formal and Informal Writing
Just before the break, we will look at the differences between formal and informal writing in IELTS and where we can and cannot use certain words.

19:25 – 19:35
After all that Writing, we will need a little break before we dive into Speaking.

19:35 – 20:20
IELTS Speaking
  • IELTS Speaking Part 1 – Making things interesting and building confidence
Part 1 is the most important part of the test in terms of candidate confidence. Here we will look at ways to get you ready to speak confidently and get off to a good start.

  • IELTS Speaking Part 2 – Structuring answers and exploring strategies to keep talking
Part 2 is hard to put in order and even harder to give a long enough answer to. Here we will look at how to do both successfully.

  • IELTS Speaking Part 3 – Taking Perspectives
In Part 3, we talk generally about specific subjects, but what if we know nothing about the subject area? Here we will learn exactly what to do in this case.
20:20 – 20:30
After all that hard work, we will want to take some time to relax and end the session with some answers to questions that you might have about the session, IELTS, the podcast or life in general.
