你必须专注于构建自己的核心英语技能

There are many ways to prepare for the IELTS. It can seem like a daunting task, but we’re going to give you some helpful IELTS study tips to help you refine your study habits.

雅思备考可以有多种不一样的方法。对于一筹莫展的你,我们会在这篇文章中给予实用的雅思备考小贴士,进而改变你的英语学习习惯


A major mistake some IELTS candidates make when preparing for the test is focusing only on mock tests. Many think that the more mock tests they do, the better prepared they will be. This is a misconception.

一个雅思考生备考的最常犯的错误就是他们仅仅关注于模拟试题本身。很多考生错误地认为只要他们的模拟试题做得多了,他们的雅思成绩就可以提高。这正是一个谬误。


The test is skill-based, not knowledge-based. This means that each mock test you do will contain different content that you can’t study for. It’s about the quality of your skills and not the number of your mock tests.

雅思考试的设计本身是以英语技能为基础,而不是英语知识为基础。这表示说每套模拟试题都涵盖着不同的具体学科内容是你不可能学习到的。这关系着你英语技能的质量,而不是模拟试题的数量。


Language (and all its parts) is a skill. So, you need to learn reading skills, writing skills, listening skills and speaking skills. You can’t approach building your language skills the same way when you do mock tests. Although familiarity with the test format is half the battle, don’t underestimate the need to develop your language skills.

语言(及其语言的各个部分)是一门技能。因此,你需要学习阅读技能、写作技能、听力技能和口语技能。在你做模拟试题的时候,你并没有在构建自己的语言技能。虽然熟悉考试题型是雅思成功的一半,但是仍然需要另外一半,也就是对于英语技能本身的培养和提高。


So, find a good English teacher, take an English course and immerse yourself in the language through books, newspapers, music and movies. Find some English-speaking friends and organise an English only conversation club. The more natural the language becomes to you, the more comfortable you are going to feel in the test.

因此,找到一位好的英文老师,参加一门英语培训课程来让自己沉浸在语言学习的书籍、报纸、音乐和电影里。找到一些和你一同学习英文的小伙伴,参加英语角的活动等等。让你在生活中更自然地运用英文,你就会对雅思考试更有自信。
