Hi,simon
Here is my answers.

2.Of course,that's quite significant.I think we have to dress quite formally for work,especially when you attending a job interview.On the contrary,I prefer to wear T-shirts at home,even the Pajama.
3.Yes,I guess so.Because 10 years ago, I was a little girl as a student,so I had to wear my uniform all the time.
4.Yes,definately.People who are more easygoing incline to wear jeans or casual clothes.But,strict person are often willing to wear suit.

Do you think the answers are OK? Or has some problems in it? And could you give me some suggestions to improve my speaking?(I always prepare the test for myself,so it is quite hard for me in speaking & writing.)
Thanks a lot.This website is REALLY useful,and I love it much!!!

simon please help me in fixing a problem regarding writing.I will be very thankful.
DURING MY PRACTICE;I NOTICE THAT MY WRITING IS NOT PRECISE.WHAT I CAN WRITE IN 1 LINE ,I WRITE 2 OR 3 LINES.THIS WILL GIVE OVERALL A BAD LOOK TO MY ESSAY.IN HOME I HAVE TIME TO CONCISE IT WHILE CHECKING MY ESSAY BUT IN EXAM I DONT HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO DO THAT.IS THIS REALLY MATTER TO GET BAND 7.

Dear Simon

I took my speaking test today and although I thought I did as well as I did the first time I sat for my IELTS(I got a 7.5 for speaking) for parts 1 and 3, I think I completely messed up for part 2. It's mostly my fault, but out of sheer nervousness, it didn't really hit me that the examiner had given me mere seconds, barely more than 20 seconds to plan for part 2 until I had begun speaking for nearly ten seconds already. I realised after awhile because I've timed myself before, but somehow I was so nervous it didn't occur to me till I was already doing the second point. She just said "you may begin", and I didn't even think twice or protest or stop her, so I know I'm to blame too, but I'm still rather upset about it. I think I didn't even hit the 1 minute mark with part 2 speaking, there was such a long pause after. I guess, what I really want to know is, could you give me an estimate of how I'll score this time from the little information I've given you. Basically, I think I did decently for part 1 and 3 but terribly for part 2. I really need to score at least a 6.5 for speaking to get into university and now I'm really worried. I would really appreciate your feedback.

Hi Simon & friends,

I had a Speaking test today.task2 was about training or course .
I responded well and effectively.However,I had a misunderstanding on 2 questions. I answered slight differently because I noticed that she was clarifying the question at the end of my answer.
I would be grateful if you guys Suggest me on this issue.thank you so much.
