HI simon,
If we are asked about our memorable incident in speaking test can we speak about fairwell party.

You can speak about anything you want as long as it is memorable to you.

Great advice Simon!

It will be good to prepare the said area so that you can speak well if the topics are repetitive as memorization is discourage in IELTS and the examiner can easily judge and differentiate between a memorized and on spot answer.

simon sir,how can I improve the score from 5.5 to 6.5 in each band.I need at least six for apply and 6.5 for direct admission.I also request those friends who are interested to improve the speaking.you can reach at me : y_pachu@yahoo.com. we can chat online and talk in Skype.

Hey my IELTS exam is on 26 July. Can you please help me out by providing me good words for my speaking module so that my vocabulary could be improved ?

My husband had an ielts exam on 21st of june 2014. & he scored 8.5 out of 9. Which is incredible.
I also have an ielts test on 10th of July 2014.. and im anxious about speaking test because I'm hesitant of speaking. Can you guide me regarding speaking section.

I think one must believe in oneself and have confidence in abilities. Just be natural in your exams with a lot of practice, which would result in shining bands.

Thank you
