IELTS Writing Feedback: improving your Task 2 essays with 40 keywords

When you get IELTS Writing feedback from your teacher, you should be able to see why you are not achieving your desired score.

But this feedback is only useful if you understand exactly what the teacher is talking about when they are pointing out areas you need to work on.

Writing Feedback about LANGUAGE is usually easy to understand – most people know the language related to grammar (e.g. wrong tense, article missing, third person -s), spelling and punctuation.

But Writing feedback related to CONTENT and academic STYLE is more difficult, especially if you are not familiar with the demands of academic writing. You need to have a good understanding of the terms that the teacher is using so that you can make the necessary changes.

Here is a ‘glossary of terms’ that I use regularly in my IELTS Writing Feedback Sessions in the Members Academy.
