Simon hi,

Cambridge book 7, Reading test 4 was the most disappointing reading test i've ever done. i do not understand the correct answers.

- "Life in Alaska is dependent on salmon".As passage says salmon was heart and soul of fisheries, i did it F , i though we cannot know if life depens on just fishing, so on salmon too

-passage states "in excess of 100 million" . so question says was '100 million' i said True but answerkeys says F

-passage : "alaska's fisheries have developed into some of the largest in the world"
question states that " Alaska's fisheries are owned by some of the world's largest companies. i thought they developed and its true that they became one of the worlds largest companies.

- how is it false that inhabitants of Aleutian islands renamed their islands 'Aleyska' while passage says that 'they called this land aleyska'

i always analyze my wrong anwers and do understand them. but i could not make sense of those.

Thank you..

Hi, Mehmet!

1. Look at phrase "Salmon pump through Alaska like blood".
2. Excess of 100 million is not 100 million.
3. There is nothing in text about owners of those fisheries.
4. Native named it Aleyska, but not REnamed it.

G'day Simon,

My question is off topic, but as you were an Ielts examiner, perhaps you can clarify me something.

Why don't we receive a breakdown of our score for the writing task 1 and 2? Is there any particular reason for that?

I believe if we knew our mistakes, perhaps we could avoid them in another attempt .

This is my answer,

It was very interesting for me to have a conversation with a foreigner the first time.

Few years ago, when I was still a student, my friend and I met a foreigner.

Sorry, the last sentence would be,

instead of,

FROM SIMON

I'll explain my corrections in detail in tomorrow's lesson here on the website (Sunday 1st December 2013).

Thank you Dear Simon for a wonderful class in your town today, regarding all modules for IELTS.

Despite the fact that buses had horrible delays today, because of the traffic and I came back home really late,I had a great day in Manchester.In addition,I could also enjoy a nice impression of the town received as everything already started to prepare for Christmas.

You continue to do your brilliant job, here on the website, by organising Saturday courses, offering your e-book,and other things, helping so much all struggling students.
Now I am wondering if I would be able to use all of this information from that successfully during my exam on 14th of December. Anyway, at least I could report you my questions from that day.

Thank you, and God bless You!
