If you want to get a high band score in IELTS Writing you must plan your essay. With a clear plan, you will be able to write clear, well-organised essays that will help you to reach Band 7 in IELTS Writing Task 2.

I am an ex-IELTS Examiner and I have read thousands of IELTS essays that failed to get Band 7 because they were badly organised and not explained in enough detail. So I created these visual IELTS essay planners to help you write better essays. These planners are designed so you can SEE the structure of your essay, from your main ideas down to your explanations and examples. They will help you plan essays that will get Band 7 and higher in IELTS Writing Task 2

These high-quality planners can be printed out and written on, or typed into on your computer, tablet or smartphone and used in your favourite notetaking apps. Since they are PDF downloads, you can use them forever.
