Hi Zeladea,

Sorry for the late reply.

As Simon would tell any student, you can find the best advice throughout this amazing blog.

It's good that you have tried to make these 10 sentences, but you have to do this kind of practice on a regular basis to keep improving. Doing hard work once in a while is really not enough. Successful students are those who are motivated and persistent with their studies at all times for an extended period of time.

Best of luck with your next IELTS exam!!!!


Thanks for the encouragement Martin :). I do visit simon website everyday to learn and get any new ideas as much as possible but as my exam is past approaching my anxiety as well increases.

Hi Zeladea,

Being nervous and anxious is very common, especially when you need to submit certain scores in a short time.

I would say that the only way to overcome these feelings is by doing lots of practice. I know this is easy for me to say, but trust me, you will naturally be more confident with your English once you can speak or write proper sentences without too much thinking and/or hesitation.

Stay positive and keep working hard! You can do it!!!
