How the lesson will help:

This lesson practises the most common verbs you will need in Task 1.

Why you need to do it:

A large majority of Task 1 questions illustrate changes over a period of time in the past.

It’s important that you describe these changes accurately using a range of vocabulary.

What you need to do:

1. Watch the video – pause if you want to (remember you can speed up or slow down the video using the little wheel in the bottom right-hand corner)

2. Review and test yourself with the PDF

5. Always keep a note of any of the ways you improved your writing today e.g. something you corrected, learnt or did differently.
