Thank you, Simon.

I am going to post an essay i wrote after a along time,but it took me around 55 minutes.
it would be a great help if all of you look into it and give a feedback.Any response would be much appreciable.

Q.AIR TRAVEL CAUSES ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION
SO MANY PEOPLE BELIEVE THAT AN INCREASE IN THE PRICE OF AIR TICKETS REDUCE AIR TRAFFIC
DO U AGREE OR DISAGREE

The salad days of third millennium has seen a prolific increase in people who travel by air. Consequently, there has been a view that air travel increases environmental pollution. Although there are few arguments in favour of hiking the price of airline tickets in order to reduce air traffic, I am of the opinion that there are much better ways to tackle this problem.
To begin, one of the main arguments of the proponents of increase in aeroplane tickets is that this may hinder people from flying very often. However, I believe this argument does not stand up to scrutiny as there are clear evidences to suggest that those consider air travel as a favourite means of transportation belong to the upper class of the society and a small hike in air tickets does not make any difference in their choice. At the same time, this might have a huge impact on students and job seekers who resort to air travel out of necessity and which is not fair.
On the other hand, there are many possible ways to reduce the number of air travelers. The most alternative is that the government could improve public transportation for longer distance to encourage frequent air travelers to give up flying. For instance, in Japan , the preferred choice of transportation of people is bullet trains that travel at the speed 350 to 400 kilo meters per hour and the Japanese barely travel by air. In addition to that, these trains run cleaner energy such as nuclear, therefore do not pollute our air.
To conclude, while some people strongly argue that an increase in the price of flight tickets could result in decreased air traffic, I am unconvinced of the effect of such strategy as it seems to me that there are much better ways to do so.


PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS ESSAY IS AS I PENNED IT DOWN.

Two mistakes I have made while typing missed 2 words 'effective'and 'on' in second paragraph

Dear Simon,
You are absolutely right. We should always try a variety of ways with practice test. In particular, reading tasks tend to be boring and in this way, we can make them less boring. As for me, everyday I read one passage with exercises and there is no time limit to them. So I focus on the meaning of the text and finally, I end up with understanding my mistakes. It is on a regular basis. I see the results. Keep it up!

yes, thanks Simon so much about that, i really think it is difficult about my new words and the way to understand to all the vocabulary of every aspect in the Ielts reading, i will try to study more new words if i want to get high band score.

Thank you so much.

Dear Simon,
please help me this question. Is it T/F/NG?
question:
stress was originally an important way of keeping humans safe.
passage:
In prehistoric times, the physical changes in response to stress were an essential adaptation for meeting natural threats.
My answer is NG, but the answer key is TRUE.????

answer is TRUE ...passage and question means the same..
adaptation for meeting natural threats means keeping humans safe.....dont overthink....

Thank you so much .... really appreciated :)
