If you're prepping to write IELTS, these materials may be very useful.

Speaking:
This is in three parts, I will breakdown by General Overview, Part 1, 2 and 3, then common topics and questions asked so you can practice. The following links will help introduce you to speaking.

Now for the trick:

IELTS normally rotates same questions within four months worldwide. What I mean is if you are writing April 2019 for instance, practice questions from Feb- March, it does not change. These two links will give you recent topics and questions you can practice.

These links have recent questions and answers I think ( you don’t have to go with the answers just go with yours)

Tips: Freestyle and don’t be nervous on the day. Act like you are talking to your friend.



For this you just need links on tips and practice questions on YouTube.

HOW TO GUARANTEE A BAND 8 IN IELTS READING
Trust me. Anyone who has had their education in the English language (i.e a Nigerian) can get a band 8+ in IELTS Reading if they follow my advice.
The only thing is the length of time to achieve this proficiency will vary. Others can get there with 1 week of practice and another with 6 months of practice.

With this strategy, you might not need a coach or any resource (i.e a book, Cambridge practice books are compulsory of course). However, a coach can be of help to shorten your preparation time.
The areas that might take you weeks to figure out all by yourself can be explained in a few hours, and this is most valuable it will save you time.
That said, let us get down to my recommended band 8+ practice strategy
READING PRACTICE
1. Starting from the latest Cambridge practice test 14 or 15. Answer all of the Reading questions, one at a time, under exam conditions. By exam conditions, I mean, time yourself and ensure there is no intermission or distraction.
2. Use the answers provided to grade your work over 40.
3. Look at the questions you got wrong and try to figure out why you got them wrong (don’t stress on this yet).
4. Take one or two more Reading test and grade your responses with the answers provided.
5. Now that you have done a few tests, did your score improve or decrease? What is your average score?
6. Go watch some videos and read resources explaining how to answer those types of questions that you find difficult.
7. Practice more Cambridge tests. Go through 14, 13, 12, 11… in that order. Grade and evaluate.
8. Rinse and repeat the process and by now, you should see your scores improve consistently.
9. Keep learning from tutorials to help you handle your trouble points. Ask other people if necessary
10. Continue to practice as required. Once you hit your desired band score in your practice, go register for the test..
: If you know you have time on your hands (you are not busy at work) but find it hard to practice regularly. Register for your exam 2 months ahead. 2 months is relatively enough to be ready and the fact that you have registered should give you enough motivation to sit your butt down and practice.
If after a lot of practice (5+) and watching the particular videos to fill your proficiency gap, you do not see your scores improving, my friend, GET HELP!
Sincerely Yours,
Ebenezer
