hello Simon.
I found your website by jumping from a bbs forum.The contents in this website are very useful to me as I will try the IELTS exam in the next Jun or July.I have not decided to choose which one yet.But as I will take the General-class exams, I really need some guides and directions about General-class exams.I recognize that you are focusing on Acedemic exams.As you know, there are still some differences between the Acdemic and General exams. So I really apperaciate if you would give me some directions or maybe one website of G-examers which you have known.Thanks!

Hi Simon

Thank you for your mention about spelling but the mistakes I often make are forgetting to add "s" for plural words.....The problem really upset me a lot, though I spell it rightly.....

Looking forward to receive any precise suggestion.
