MATERIAL DEVELOPMENT FOR A 120- MINUTE LESSON
IN IELTS PREPARATION PROGRAM

IELTS WRITING TASK 1- BAR CHART DESCRIPTION
I. TEACHING SITUATION
IELTS Preparation Program is an obligatory English subject for first year students of Keuka program which is one of international joint programs between Keuka College, USA and International School, Vietnam National University (VNU). It is required that students after attending the course have to reach an IELTS overall band of 6 on the purpose of further studying at university where the language of instruction is English. This intensive course endures 7 weeks in which 4 skills namely listening, reading, writing and speaking are distributed equally with the total of 120 minutes for each lesson focusing on separate skills. This course takes place when students have completed General English Program which consists of 4 levels and serves as a supply of basic knowledge for pre- university students of all majors at International School, VNU. While General English course puts emphasis on improving learners’ 4 skills in general with the aim at facilitating them to communicate effectively in daily social activities, IELTS Preparation Program focuses mainly on developing communicative competency in academic university context. Therefore, this course is appropriate to improve students’ English language skills for their future studies at university level as well as enhance their English language skills in an academic English environment. The aims of the course will be realized by a full set of lectures, tasks and tests to get students familiar with academic listening contents through broadcasted programs, lectures at university; academic reading passages in journals, newspaper articles; and diverse writing genres including 6 visual description tasks and different kinds of essays. At the end of the course, students’ scores are rated by the mode of assessment as follow: - Attendance and participation: 10%

- The final test of 4 skills:
Listening: 22.5%
Reading: 22.5 %
Writing: 22.5%
Speaking: 22.5%
The final examination will test students’ competency in the four skills in according to the exact format of the IELTS as follow: Listening
Reading
Writing
Speaking
- 40 questions
- 4 sections
( 2 monologues & 2 dialogues)
- 40 questions
- 3 reading passages
- 2 tasks:
(i) 150 word essay describing graph(s), table(s), process.
(ii) 250 word essay
- 3 parts (general conversation, mini-presentation & discussion)

II. CLASS DESCRIPTION
The target class comprises 20 fresh students of Keuka program with the age ranging from 18 to 21 years old and at immediate level of English competency. Although taking the course of General English and being oriented towards IELTS format in Level 4, students’ four skills are not equally developed and most of them feel unconfident of two productive skills namely speaking and writing. Moreover, it should not forget to mention one point that because General English merely provides students with basic lexical resources for daily life, they find it challenging to deal with reading passages or listening tasks full of academic vocabulary within firmly constrained time. However, grammar is the obvious advantage of the target students, which is revealed through their performance in final achievement test of Level 4 in General English Program. The...
