It is always a good idea to practice for the IELTS reading test, however, there are just far too many synonyms in the English language and it is extremely unlikely that the same ones will come up again. So how do I improve my vocabulary?
Students ask me this all the time and I always tell them that reading is the single most effective way to improve your vocabulary.

If you do this, you are more likely to learn something and not get bored. If you love football, read a football magazine.
If you love clothes, read a fashion blog. Interested in world affairs? Read the international news. Secondly, you must record and review new words.
When you see a new word, underline it. At the end, you can go back and try to guess the meaning.
It requires you to read extracts from books, magazines, newspapers, notices, advertisements, company handbooks and guidelines. These are materials you are likely to encounter on a daily basis in an English speaking environment.

The IELTS Listening test will take about 30 minutes, and you will have an extra 10 minutes to transfer your answers to the answer sheet. You will listen to four recorded texts, monologues and conversations by a range of native speakers, and write their answers to a series of questions.
These include questions which test the ability to understand main ideas and detailed factual information, ability to understand the opinions and attitudes of speakers, ability to understand the purpose of what is said and ability to follow the development of ideas.
