Disc 6 - "30 English proverbs"
English proverbs will not only significantly expand your vocabulary and allow you to better understand native speakers, but also come in handy in all 4 sections of IELTS. In cases where proverbs have Russian equivalents, I cite them; where they don't, I indicate the semantic translation and give the context in which the use of this proverb will be appropriate. Many of these proverbs are over 100 years old and have become firmly established; therefore it will be very helpful for you to familiarize yourself with them.
Disc 7 - "60 English Idioms."
Idiomatic expressions will come in handy in all four sections of the exam.
Disc 8 - "IELTS Terminology."
I often say in my trainings that the exam preparation should be based on a clear understanding of the examiners' requirements. However, the irony is that in order to understand the language that is used in the list of these requirements, you yourself need to have a score of at least 7 IELTS...
Since my score is 9 in all sections, and I am an IELTS instructor and have been teaching this exam in one of the world's largest English language schools for several years, I am able to completely sort out all the terminology for you.
Disc 9 - Quiz "IELTS - What? Where? When?"
