IELTS Listening and Writing: spelling tips

Spelling mistakes can affect your score in the listening and writing tests. If you have a problem with spelling, here are some tips:

  1. Type your essays: your computer will find your spelling mistakes.
  2. When writing by hand, use a dictionary to check difficult words.
  3. Keep a list: write down any mistakes your computer/teacher finds.
  4. Memorise: learn difficult words by heart.
  5. Test yourself on words you previously spelt wrongly.
  6. Never give your teacher an essay that you haven't checked.

If you find that spelling is a big problem, you should work on it every day. Keep a notebook or put posters on your walls. If you do nothing, you will not improve; there is no secret rule that will suddenly solve the problem!
