Hi, Simon!
First of all, I want to thank you so much for your great website and ebook (Ideas for IELTS Topics).
I got from my first attempt (21November): L-5, R-5, W-4, S-6. OVERALL: 5.
I need 6.5 at least. So my next Exam is on 15th of February. How can I improve my scores such a short period of time (2 months)? Please Help me. What should I do?

Hi Simon,
To be honest I don't know where should i start to study IELTS. I admit I'm not good in writing essay and I have to improve also my listening and in speaking i have difficulties to express my ideas. I need to get 7 score in all. Please give me some advise. Thank you.

Please let me know how the spelling can affect the writing score,is it possible to get 7 with occasional spelling mistakes in writing?
Thanks a lot.

Many Thanks for quite useful and Comprehensive REMINDERS these days !!!!!!

Ervin , i think you should study more than you used to do before your first attempt. If you can get all cambridge IELTS books they are very useful , and I think you had better do as many exercise from this site as you can.

I am always confused to arrange words in the sentence .. i dont even know how to start a sentence . Even though therr are ample amount of ideas in my head while writing. But unabling to put them in writing sentence accurately . Idont know how to combat this difficulty :((

Please do give some suggestions and advices . I need t7777

Hi Simon ,

Please, can you share some idaes about the topic related the age?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Sham,
I guess you might be trying to use bit difficult words for your sentences.I think it will be a good idea if you just start writing down your ideas ,using just simple words or vocabulary. To be able to use good topic vocabulary, read Simon's essays or any other essay or article and carefully note that how good vocabulary is being used. But I would suggest that ""first practice writing a good essay using SIMPLE VOCABULARY".

It's easy to say take the test again and again till u achieve your desired score, but the high price that you are made to pay each time you take the test makes it very disappointing and frustrating each time u don't get ur required score.
Sad reality:-(

Is the ielts fee expensive everywhere in the world?? Is the fee same world over or is it only in certain countries? ?
