Top Tips for IELTS

Task one numbers exercise – transport

Sometimes it is good to test yourself a little. Here you will find a task one numbers exercise and an exercise to test you on your transport vocabulary. The idea is that these should be tests that teach – so you will find extensive notes to the answers as you do the quiz.

Task one numbers exercise

Before you start, here are a few tips in describing numbers in task one:

  • be accurate
  • think of variations – don’t always say “percentage”
  • think about how you can group number together – that is what a summary is all about
  • remember the language of mathematics – especially when you have a graph (as here) that shows change.

Transport vocabulary exercise

Another key vocabulary area in task one is learning how to vary the words in the question. It is very easy to get “stuck on certain words and here the problem is what different words do you have to describe different modes of transport. Before you start, here are a few tips:

  1. think of different world forms (drive – driver – driving)
  2. think of synonyms
  3. related words
  4. don’t be afraid to use descriptive phrases

I should add here that the variations need not be complex and that a certain amount of repetition is acceptable – sometimes the right word is the right word – a taxi is a taxi is a taxi.
