The Basics

Grammar is a very important part of the language you need to get a high IELTS band score. This is especially true in the writing and speaking parts of the test, where for a band 7, around 50% or more of the sentences you produce should be without grammatical errors.

Begin your journey to better grammar with our Key Grammar lessons below.
