Cohesive devices are vital for achieving a high band score in IELTS writing. They enable you to write a clear, coherent, and logical text or speech that connects your ideas and shows the relationship between them. They also demonstrate your range and accuracy of vocabulary and grammar, which are also part of the assessment criteria.
However, using cohesive devices effectively is not easy. You need to use them appropriately and accurately according to the purpose and context of your writing. You also need to vary your choice of cohesive devices and avoid repetition.
To improve your use of cohesive devices, you need to practice writing on different topics and review your writing for coherence and cohesion. You also need to read more texts and speeches that use cohesive devices effectively and learn from them.
