What is the best way to improve English for the IELTS?

Three Golden rules for IELTS: Remember it is a test of your English language ability. The better your English language skills, the easier it will be to approach the test. Concentrating on IELTS books and IELTS practice tests alone is not the best way to prepare for the exam. Use the language around you. If you are in an English speaking country then this is easy. If not then use the internet. I you have the chance, join an English speaking club where you can practise your speaking regularly (this could be a book club, cultural exchange or a hobby club) – or start one yourself with other ‘IELTS’ friends and have one rule – ‘English only’! See if you can invite native speakers to give short talks at your meetings. The value is in the speaking and trying to improve fluency. Do one English activity every day – listen to the radio, watch a film, read a magazine or newspaper article, have a conversation in English. Make it something that you are interested in and then ENJOY it! Volunteer to do something where you have to speak English – read to the children at your local primary school, help some high school students with their English etc… (if you live in an English-speaking country there are many opportunities – go to your local library to find out.)
