IELTS WRITING TASK 2 STRUCTURE

IELTS WRITING TASK 2 STRUCTURE

An important skill that can determine whether you achieve the band score you deserve for your IELTS Writing Task 2 essay is knowing how to organize your writing. In light of this, the most typical IELTS Writing Task 2 structures are shown below.

Nearly all of my Task 2 essays follow this basic structure: The sentences you put in each paragraph will depend on what type of question you get.

The five most common IELTS Writing Task 2 questions are:

1. Opinion (Agree or Disagree)

2. Advantages and Disadvantages

3. Problem and Solution

4. Discussion (Discuss both views)

5. Two-part Question

Note that these are only general structures and may change slightly based on the question.
