The Library

There is more to good writing than grammar and vocabulary. You also need to have good ideas, uncommon words and expressions, a clear understanding of the differences between certain words that seem alike, and many other points. The Library is a resource center full of the little details that will make your writing better.

What is included:

  • The Grammar section provides you with a brief review of the many essential components of good writing. We begin with an look at the Parts of Speech, sentence components (clauses, phrases, modifiers, etc.), and many other useful tools. Begin with the Fundamentals , then move on to the more Advanced reviews.
  • The Vocabulary section provides some useful tips on building a larger vocabulary base. You can also find more details about our vocabulary-builder podcast, The Write Stuff.
  • In the Video Library you can look through our growing list of YouTube videos on a range of topics aimed at helping you achieve a higher score on your IELTS exam or any other English language test.
  • The Idea Bank presents many possible topics that may come up on your IELTS or TOEFL tests. The purpose of the Idea Bank is to help you gather ideas to use in your essays and/or in the Speaking section—before you arrive to write your test. Save time and energy during the test by having clear ideas ready to use (open to Members of WritetoTop).
  • A set of Lists that will help you avoid common mistakes in your writing. Study the irregular verbs, commonly misspelled and confused words, irregular plurals, and even foreign words that can add a touch of style to your writing.
  • Useful links will lead to other websites that will help you learn and prepare for your English exams and English in general.
  • The best way to learn to write essays and other writing styles is by viewing samples of these. We have compiled a collection of essays, reports, summaries, and letters for you to study. These include samples written by the WritetoTop team as well as by students. See samples of writing of different bands and scores and study the comments that accompany the student samples to see where and why these students lost points on their submissions.
