Grammar Tips for IELTS Preparation

Grammar Tips

***** GRAMMAR TIPS *****

In both the IELTS Speaking and the IELTS Writing test, grammar is part of the marking criteria. Poor grammar means only one thing – a lower score. Ironically, making mistakes with more complex structures won’t harm you as much as making errors with more simple grammar structures.

Present Simple and Past Simple are often not so “simple” in languages other than English, and often “L1 Interference” takes place. That’s when you speak English, but using the grammar of your native language.

For example, in many languages verbs don’t change to indicate time – sentences simply end “today”, “yesterday” or “tomorrow”. Many IELTS candidates who speak such languages automatically do this in English. So, “I went to the market” becomes “I go to the market yesterday”.
