This textbook can be described as a “no-nonsense” textbook for students. All the material in the text contains information that would be highly useful for the student while preparing for the Writing Task 2 section of the IELTS test.
Over the years the author has found that teachers often misunderstand what the actual needs of their students are, and they therefore often digress into long discussions and explanations which are not needed to enhance the IELTS Band Score of their students. With this in mind, the author has gone to great lengths to ensure that only material that is crucial was included, and that the language used in this textbook fits the level at which the students - for whom this book is intended - are at present.
