The IELTS academic writing task 2 is an opinion essay. Your goal during this task is to read and respond to a specific question asking about your opinion on a topic. These topics can vary in their content, so it’s important that you practice answering all types of different questions prior to your test.
IELTS writing and speaking are two of the test’s areas that test-takers have the most trouble with. Both of these skills are active skills; that means you have to be engaged and present while practicing them. This is the opposite of the passive skills listening and reading which you can practice without active participation. So what can you do to prepare for your IELTS writing test?
