Video - Essential Band 7+ words/phrases for IELTS Writing and Speaking

As a former IELTS examiner and teacher of IELTS for more years than I care to remember, when marking IELTS Writing and IELTS Speaking, I am always looking for 'reasons' to give an IELTS candidate a particular grade. When I see words like 'good' or 'important' these are 'red flags' and I immediately think 'this could be an IELTS 5.0 candidate'. There are so many more ways we can say or write 'a good reason' or 'the most important reason'. In this video, I go through lots of complex, band 7+ synonyms that you could use instead.
