Sometimes it's best to watch or listen to something simply because it's interesting. It's still good practice for your ear.
Here's a YouTube video that I enjoyed watching this week:

YouTube is blocked in some countries, and in other countries YouTube might not have permission to show this particular clip.
If you can't see the video, it's a pity. However, you are not missing any IELTS advice - it's just an interesting and inspirational story.

I know that you are saying that the most reliable IELTS practice source is Cambridge books. I agree with you and whenever I practice the tests in these books, I normally get 7 or 7.5 for listening. However, the tests in a series of books called >IELTS Listening Recent Actual Tests> which are climed to be the real IELTS tests are much more difficult and more tricky than Cam books (based on my own opinion and also what they themselves claim). you can see what has been said here:http://ieltsmaterial.com/ielts-listening-actual-tests-vol-2/
I am now so disappointed, because my score with the tests in this book is almost always 6.5.
Can you comment on that ?
I hope you can help me with this
Thank you in advance.

BTW, in these series of books, they also mentioned the dates of the tests. So, it seems they are right, they are real IELTS tests.

my question is about the books called "IELTS listening actual recent tests". The tests in these books are harder than Cambridge books. I normally get 7.5 with tests in Cam books but 6.5 in "IELTS listening actual recent tests". Do you have any idea? are the real IELTS tests more difficult than the ones in Cam books?

I also have a similar query like Nina. I recently participated in academic IELTS test in the UK. While I always I used to get around 7.5-8.5 practicing the Cambridge book, I only achieved 6.5 in the real test. In fact, I found the actual listening test more difficult than the one in Cambridge practice materials. If you could kindly shed some light on this issue that would be really helpful.
Thanks in advance.

I am so sorry, in my life. I have never found my dream. You know, when I find people interested in his dream, I hope deeply that I can be down under the sea with my passion. That day, I drawn my future painting in a A4-sized page. There are a lot of colours, I really hope oneday I can make my dream come true. This makes me experiennce with a lot of roles to improve my skills.
Untill now, I am really ENVY with him.
Im a bad girl, right?

@dung: I think this is more correct: "hats off to his talent..."
