This app will help you to: increase your vocabulary for the IELTS writing and speaking tests; learn useful synonyms that will help you answer questions in the reading and listening tests; improve your reading speed and your listening accuracy; and improve your chances of achieving IELTS Band 7 and above.
Many IELTS candidates try to learn vocabulary but can’t remember the words when they need to use them in the test. This app is designed to help you remember the words you learn, improve your active vocabulary (the vocabulary you use in speaking and writing), and increase your reading speed.
Start by picking one of 25 topics, all related to the IELTS test. The first time you complete a topic, you must do the exercises in order – you can’t skip ahead! This is because you build your active vocabulary through repetition - it’s like having an IELTS teacher in your pocket.
You will complete 10 different exercises to improve: speed reading, spelling, listening, and accurate use in a sentence.
Once you have completed and unlocked all of the exercises in a topic, you can review them in any order, at any time. Repeat the topics to try to improve your accuracy in use, spelling, and to increase your speed-reading time. If you find the words too difficult, look out for IELTS Vocab 6+ coming out soon.
This app was written and designed by Pauline Cullen, the author of
• The Official Cambridge Guide to IELTS
• Cambridge Vocabulary for IELTS
• Cambridge Vocabulary for IELTS Advanced
• Common Mistakes at IELTS Intermediate
• Cambridge Grammar for IELTS (co-author)
The app was constructed and produced by the amazing people at PEEK Creative, Cambridge, UK. I brought them the individual parts and a picture in my head and they assembled it, gave it an engine and made it work better than I ever imagined.
