I answered wrong in this question and keep being consfused for quite a long time.
Thank you for your clear explaination. Finally I get the point.

Hai Simon
I would like to thank u for you devoting time for ielts scholars.Though I tried really hard to get 7 in writing for some time ,it is still a hard but to crack for me.I am going to give it try again in next couple of months.
I want to ask u something regarding to the use of ,mean that' .you very often use it in your essays and I find it really hard to understand the correct use of it.
It would be much appreciated if u can give detailed explanation about it.
I tried to Google it I couldn't find anything useful
Please help me
Thanks in advance

It is common to mistake 80 with 90.

This also confused me for quite a while. Your explanation is very helpful. Thank you very much, Simon.

Hi Simon,

Thanks for your advice in the website, I find it really useful!

I have two questions in Cambridge book 7 Test 2 listening section 2. The record mentioned "...built for the king with its beautiful formal gardens" in question 14, but the answer gives "has lovely garden". Why is that?
And about question 18 in the same test, is it correct to write "7-screen" in stead of the answer "7 screen"?

Thanks a lot
Jing

I think it will not be easy for both English native and non native speakers to distinguish the sounds /nei/ and /nai/. It is similar to the situation when an English learner has to listen to an Australian asking 'What are you going to do today?' That learner might have heard 'What are you going to do to die?'. Poor him! :)

Hi Simon!

Just wanted to ask some help with the letter "H" and number "8". They sounded very similar once the speaker talks faster.
What can I do to distinguish which is which?

Thank you in advanced, Simon!
