If the answer for listening test is "a BOOK"
and i answer as a "book" so is it considered as a true? and i often do mistakes between singular and plural.so give me some advice about this.

Thank You simon.

dear Simon
when i describe a person ,should i talk in past or present if he is not died?
as you write in speaking
•My father was always a good role model

Ahmed,
if a person is still alive, use present perfect (My father has always been a good role model). If you use past simple, that may indicate that either your father is dead or that he stopped being a good role model.

Hi,Simon,if I have finished with cambridge ielts 4-8,what else books do you suggest to own as exercise books concerning reading and listening parts?

Thank you Stas and Simon,
it is clear now thank you so much

hii dear simon

i have an exam on 31st march i'm afraid. so please give me some advice As early as possible.

Thank you!

Hi simon.

I have some confusion in the listening part where you have to write your answer not more than three words and/or a number.

If the answer states 10 to 3, does it still follow the proper format or writing answer for listening. If 10 am for example consider as one word and one number or otherwise? hope you could help. thank you.

Just try your best Ami!

...

Hi Nor,

'10 to 3' is fine, but I'd probably write 2.50
10am is one word/number.

...

I'll answer some of the other questions this weekend.

Dear Simon

I am asking you the difference between "BOOK" and "A BOOK" in listening test and singular plural mistakes. My exam is on day after tomorrow.so please give me some tip about this.

Thank You..

Hi Ami,

If the gap isn't in a full sentence, it doesn't matter about the word "a". If the gap is in a sentence the grammar needs to be correct, so you probably need "a".

Hi Simon

If the speaker says her date of birth is on 22nd July 1985, can I put 22nd July without the year? The question specifically stated 'write not more than TWO words and/or A number'.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Eun,

Can you tell me where that question comes from?

Hi Simon

It's from my listening test on 31 March.

Last Gap, J"O"6637 or J"0"6637
e.g. my passport number has only one alphabet, and rest are numerical.
if I make mistake between "O" and "0" in this gap, am I going to lose mark.
Kind Regards

Thomson, AC936, 3303 8405 2045 6837, Paynter, B659, JO6337.

Question, speaker said 'twenty third of May', which one the correct answer either '23 May' or '23rd May' or both are correct?

Hi Eun,

You probably didn't need the year.

...

Hi Amin,

Don't worry about O or 0.

...

Hi Semenchu,

Both are correct.
