Do you know who is most important in the Writing test?

The reader is the most important person in the Writing test

Your reader is the most important consideration in the writing test

Follow this handy strategy to keep the reader in the front of your mind:

R is for relevance – make sure you select information which is relevant to the current situation. Anything which is not relevant can be omitted.

E is for explain – make sure you explain the details of the situation logically. Using time expressions can help the reader understand the order of events.

A is for accuracy – to make your letter as clear as possible you need to demonstrate good grammatical accuracy in a range of tenses.

D is for division – make sure you divide your letter into clear paragraphs.  Order the paragraphs in terms of how important the information is to the reader.

E is for ending – make sure your reader has a clear understanding at the end of the letter of what action you require from them.

R is for reason – make sure you include the reason for writing at the start (usually provided in the Writing Task). This helps the reader understand the purpose of your letter.
