Hi Simon,

My problem is not confined to section 4 but more of related to type of Question. Most of the time I do not get correct answer for question where list is given with blanks I have to choose answers from list of answers using alphabets or numbers. Can you suggest solution?



I'll try to find a question like that. I'll make a lesson about it.

Hi Simon,

I have problem with multiple questions in listening. Although I underline names and verbs, I still make mistake. My exam is in April 14, Thank you in advance for your guide

I tried the method that Omar suggested above, which really worked for me. HOWEVER I'd really recommend you better not to use this way unless you get quite confident as the place you take the test, you must feel so much pressure there.

Otherwise it would be very helpful and I've got 7.0 for the listening just sticking with it:-)

Hi Simon,

I have a question
Ultimately, helping your child break habits of backtalk and disrespect will help her not only in her not only at home, but will make all the difference in her ability relate to others and be successful in life.
What dose this sentence mean in terms of "be successful in life"? IS the thing that helping your child break habits of backtalk and disrespect successful or the thing help child successful?

Hi Simon,

I answered some tests of Cambridge test books and found out that I have problem with numbers and multiple choice questions. In multiple choice questions I can't concentrate on what the speaker says.

for example, I answered listening test 2 of Cambridge 5 and my correct answers were as follow:
section 1: 6 correct answers
section 2: 5 correct answers
section 3: 7 correct answers
section 4: 8 correct answers

I had 4 mistakes in numbers and 4 mistakes in multiple choice questions.

Could you please help me and tell me what to do?

Thank you very much

please give me some idea for listening section 3 and 4.i have been failed for multiple choice question so please give me some ideas that may helped to get good score on IELTS.
Thank you
