Transition Words for IELTS and TOEFL

Transition words and phrases for IELTS and TOEFL

Written by Mr Richard Forrest 

Transitional words and phrases can create powerful links between ideas in your writing/speaking and can help your IELTS and TOEFL examiner understand the logic of your writing/speaking. However, these words all have different meanings, nuances, and connotations.

IELTS ideas and transition words

Below I have organised some of the most common ones by category. 

Using them helps the examiners to read your essays or listen to you more smoothly, allowing them to follow you as you move from one idea to the next. 

Additionally, transitions enhance your logical organisation and coherence
and improve the connections between your thoughts. They indicate relations,
whether within your speaking or writing. 

To sum up, you will gain points in both vocabulary and coherence by using transition words in your essays and speech.
