Here are some of the things we touch upon in this episode:

- Are they formal or informal?

- Can you use idioms in IELTS Writing?

- Should you even bother using them?

- How do I learn/remember idioms?


+ talk about old-fashioned idioms, why you still can use them in your exam, and give you quality examples!

🧔 Helping others - Stories with Rory #2 (+ Transcript)
763

Starting from mid June, all "Stories with Rory" episodes will be released exclusively on our Patreon!

"Stories with Rory" focus on storytelling and the ability to talk about different topics at length. We know that it might be quite difficult to formulate a coherent story about a trip you made, your birthday party, or all sorts of things that happen to us. You start of good but by the 4th sentence get lost in all these tenses, forget all the topic related vocabulary and just can't hold it together, really. In addition to this, many of you do not live in English speaking countries and do not get a chance to hear and/or talk about a whole lot of different topics.

In this series of episodes we will be trying to help you with that. We will be showing you how to be natural, express your thoughts clearly, and use good language in your everyday English, when telling a story.

The topics we will be discussing all come from the second part of the IELTS speaking exam.

🧔 Lost and Found - Stories with Rory #1 (+ Transcript)
783

We are launching a new series of episodes called "Stories with Rory"!

These episodes focus on storytelling and the ability to talk about different topics at length. We know that it might be quite difficult to formulate a coherent story about a trip you made, your birthday party, or all sorts of things that happen to us. You start of good but by the 4th sentence get lost in all these tenses, forget all the topic related vocabulary and just can't hold it together, really. In addition to this, many of you do not live in English speaking countries and do not get a chance to hear and/or talk about a whole lot of different topics. 

In this series of episodes we will be trying to help you with that. We will be showing you how to be natural, express your thoughts clearly, and use good language in your everyday English, when telling a story. 

The topics we will be discussing all come from the second part of the IELTS speaking exam.
