IELTS Academic and General Task 2 - How to Write at a Band 9 Level
NEW EDITION, 2015
This book has been written to provide the IELTS student with a brief summary outlining how to write an effective essay in the Task 2 portion of the Academic and General IELTS exams. It is hoped that this book acts as a supplement to the student's repertoire of IELTS writing resources and not the student's sole source of guidance for their studies in essay writing. Although valuable, reading up on the subject of IELTS essay writing alone will not ascertain success on the Task 2 portion of the IELTS exam. Students should be actively practicing their essay writing skills on a regular basis with direct coaching from an IELTS instructor.
IELTS Academic Writing - Task 2 In the second part of the IELTS Academic Writing Test, you have to wrile 250 words. You should spend 40 minutes on this task.

You will be given an opinion/ argument, different points of view or a problem to discuss.
