Have you found yourself in a situation when you had an idea in your head but you could not explain it? When you felt a choke in your neck, as if you want to say something but the word just doesn’t comes out and in that struggle you mumble different words which have no meaning all together. Well, this happens because you have a weak vocabulary or you don’t know how to use the words that you know. It might also be possible that you are not confident, but for now, we shall consider the previous two conditions i.e. either you have a weak vocabulary or you don’t know how and when to use those words.
So, be calm and delve into the new venture of learning words and using them in an exciting way.
In this first article, we will begin with something we all are part of and we all love, FAMILY.
Now, every topic has its own vocabulary( words related to it). And family is no different.
Check out the entire list of family vocabulary HERE.
Now, let us start using them.
About My family.
So, let us begin. When asked about your family, there are few things you have to tell.
1. Who do you live with?
Now, suppose you live with your parents and have a brother or a sister. You must write, I live with my mother, my father and a younger brother.
What have you done, you have used the verb- live, wrote the names of the people you live with. And that is all required to begin with.
2. Where do you live?
Now, there has to be some place where you are currently staying. State the name of the place. You must write, I live in Dehradun( now this place can be anywhere in the world).
3. Now, you need to elaborate.

You can go and read those n number of sample answers, cross check them with yours and pick out some good words from there, fit it in yours and then move with it. But then how long is it going to help you, even more can it help you if you are a novice to English. What if the entire question boils down to this one fact that you don’t understand how to analyse a bar graph or a line graph. You don’t understand what the fuss about essays is and what the things you must consider while writing them are. Even more how can you write impressive letters?
Well, we have a solution. Right now, I am not talking to those who are pretty good in English, have studied all through their lives in English medium schools and listen to English songs and need just mere time to improve a bit and get the desired band in IELTS. I am referring to those who have dreams of going abroad, living life they have dreamt of, but somehow, may be because of circumstances or any other reasons, haven’t been able to give English the required time and this has led them to a rather weak spot.
I hope you are going through the reading course and improving on your reading skills. But then IELTS is not just about reading, isn’t it? It is about speaking, listening and writing as well.
And so, we are now beginning with a writing course. You shall not find sample answers or other tricks and traps you read everywhere. In this course, you shall be taught, how to frame sentences, how to join them and make a paragraph and then make a complete sense out of it. How to then link those paragraph and create what is called a master piece, a perfect example of write up.
So, if you are someone who knowns vernacular language but has issues in expressing ideas in English, we bring to you the writing course.
This course, like the reading course, will have three levels.
Level 1 – You will learn how to express ideas in English. You will be learning the English words for your ideas.
Level 2 – Here you will be taught how to frame sentences, how to make sense in English out of what you know.
Level 3 – When you reach this level, you will learn how to frame paragraphs and then link them to create a fantastic right up.
