hi everyone,
I took IELTS exam on 03/08/2013
speaking test: part 1
about you, sleeping habits, my home.
Part 2:
situation when I was late, what is it, why you late, how you felt and what happened after that.
part 3: about time management, technology and time.
writing task 1:
bar charts compare air and water temperatures in three lakes in an European country in 2010, the charts for three seasons, summer, winter and autumn.
writing task 2: the typical situation between the teacher and students will no longer exist by the year 2050. to what extent do you agree or disagree?
wish me luck, and hopefully this will help you.

Hello,

I thought the answer of no. 3's 'False' at first. However, I wonder if the listeners were experts or not. They are indicated as 'listeners' not 'experts' in the passage. (It didn't indicate the only expert Charles Beare anywhere. Therefore, I think 'Not given' is another answer too.

Do I think too much (in detail)?

Awwww... Yeah.. The answer of no.3 is definately "False" for sure. Was confused. :):)

Dear Sir,
