Hi Simon,

I am looking forward to your online video courses.

Hix...I don't understand what people said in the vieos, that's terrible :(

hi simon

"academic qualification gained abroad" or "academic qualification gained from abroad"

which one is the correct one?

thank you for providing such an excellent learning website.

The next video should be ready later today Ali.

...

Try watching a few more times Kid4112. Don't worry if you don't understand everything - you're still doing useful practice.

...

I prefer "gained abroad" William.

Hi Simon,

I really like the video clips that you uploaded. They are interesting and very good for improving listening, as well as mastering good vocabulary.

Thank you

OMG, I need a transcription, sir. I don't understand the meaning of "financial and privacy costs".

Wow that was great I could understand a lot of speeches but you know there is a problem,I think I can not remember things they say at the moment but most of the times i understand what is going on , and also something bothering me , do we hear such accent and in a high rate as they talk ?! :(

They speak too fast. Can anyone share a transcription?

hi simon ihave atarget band 7 book but there is no practice test and i have practice all from other site so please can u help me to send more listening and reading test in my email.

Hi everybody!!

I am here new. I gave several time ielts exam since January 15. And i didn't get my expected result (in GT reading module) in these exams.

So could you all try to enlighten/share some advice to me about reading GT module please. It will be great help for me.

Dear Saimon sir,
I am also seeking some advice from you about GT reading.

I'm IELTS self-study newby, so it's normal for me to take 30P TO TRANSCRIBE 1:38 OF THIS VIDEO.
Can anyone, Mr.Simon or Mr.non-Simon check this for me?
CCTV, was introduced in attempt to cut crime and help us feel safe, is on asking critics (?) those say invade our privacy
When measure the targeted regulation security canal (?) was introduced in the queen's speech this week, so off(?) people pleased with the move we sent to ask residents in 1 of the 1st town in Britain where CCTV was introduced, is Kingsland, in Oxford

The CCTV revolution began here, where closed-circuit TV camera has been kept organized in Kingsland town's centre,for almost a quarter of a century. For 23 years, people here have been watched and filmed. So, do they feel grateful, or suspicious?

So you dont mind being watched?
No, as long as there is, you know, really private place and room I ask (?????)

I'm afraid I.....equipment for the sight of community and ....children stole and ran out...(?????) It's a good thing but it also takes the privacy away as well. So we have to learn to live with it.

You think it's invading every part of our life. You do need some privacy.

However the majority of people we spoke to didnt share that concern. It was just 1 random selection of shoppers but most welcome to the camera (?)
We need more, definitely
We need more, CCTV?
Ofcourse you do,ya
Why's that?
I dont see...reason(??)
What's about people privacy? Do they deserve other rights of not be filmed?
......

As long as you've done nothing wrong, what's ......(?) you know, if you got nothing to hide, why worry about?

Ps1: PLEASE HELP MY SOUL, and my ears, CHECK THIS FOR ME
Ps2: The old lady in 1:04, she made my life easier
Ps3: I wont give up on this brain-explosed video.
Ps4: Thank you so much Simon, you're credited with introducing me this Video. Love you!!

where is answer of listening

Hi Respectable Simon How can I get this essay in full.Thanks
