I like more challenging tasks like this one. In fact, I had to listen to this video more than once to get all, I hope, right answers. By the way the topic was very interesting.
Thank you, dear Teacher

Hi Simon,
First of all, I would like to thank you for your great website. I am going to test next week.

I have a problem in listening test about dates, some times I saw in answer-sheet that it is 22 October and some times 22nd October, or 13 Nov. or 13th Nov. Thank you for your great website again.

hlw everyone... i have recently appeared in the Academic ielts and got overall 7.0 (S-7.5, L-7.5, R-6.5 , W-7.0).but i am in need of individual 7.though i am going through sufficient amount of reading materials i am always getting 6.5 in reading.i found...

1. i can correct almost all of the qustions in reading passage 1 2. due to managing time i am not able to concentrate properly rest of the passages 3. sometimes whenever the passage is about any unfamiliar topic i suddenly loss my interest and concentnration 4. even in my last mock test here in Bangladesh i made 23 ans correct successively from the begining. but at last it was sharply 7 as i did 31 correct answrs.

Hence, i will be very glad if anyone provide me with some pragmatic suggestion to increase my reading band score at least 0.5

Melbourne, Australia's cultural hub. Hub means center. Good word for speaking and writing test.

I was taking a listening test from Cambridge IELTS 7 test 2 section 4.Five MCQ questions are given there and I found them too difficult to find out the meaning as I have given only 1 minute to look at the questions. The sentences are too long to follow in 1 minute.
Does anybody find it hard too? What should we do if we find this type of question? Any advice from Simon?

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

1. notch
2. diversity
3. improved
4. districts
5. facade
6. spirit
7. opportunities
8. hub
9. ease
10. outdoors

I did this after 3 times listening, and I am wondering if it is acceptable for exam.

Hi Simon,

Do we lose mark for not putting 's' for the answer?
Example: correct answer is 'elements' but I only wrote 'element'.

Thanks.

FROM SIMON:

Please remember that this is good listening practice, but it's not a real IELTS listening test. Don't worry if you had to watch it several times to get the answers.

Phoenix,

I'm afraid you would probably lose the mark. For example, if you are filling a gap after the word "many", the answer would need to be plural (many elements). Singular would be wrong.

Hi Simon and Everyone!

could you pls see the Listening practice Cambridge9, test4, page84
here they says write no more than three words but on question 26 & 29 I answered like;
Q.26 =SMALL GROUPS
q.29 =MUCH MORE CONFIDENT
But the answer has given only Groups and confident

could you pls suggest me
it will helpful. Thanks

Thanks Simon for your reply. How about for another example :

Without the action of human being (s), there would have been far less temperature change.

Sometimes it's quite difficult to hear if it is singular or plural :(

Hi simon I like your website plz help me I want to do ielts but my English is so week can u tell me what can I do for my improve English I'm very upset plz help me

This music is making me dance but I can not because my exam is tomorrow. :-)
