Thanks to those of you who wished me a nice holiday! I've had a relaxing week away from work, and now I'm trying to get back to normal.
You can see today's blog lesson below, and I'll start to catch up on unanswered emails over the weekend.

Great to see you here again. I'm glad you enjoyed your holiday.
Simon I got my results, they're really lower than I expected. Please help me to understand what is the problem. As for Speaking and Writing, would we lose score if we copied a prepared answer? I used your model answers for both speaking and writing, and I want to know if that had been the problem, I wouldn't repeat that again(I need to mention that my scores for writing and speaking skills were about 7.5 and 7 respectively in samples). And about Reading and Listening I always get 5.5 or 6, while I have at least 32 correct answer at home. I'm really exhausted and I don't know what to do.
thank you for all of your help.

I am a Chinese ESL learner as well.
I think your prior challenge is not vocabulary (there is no such a thing called IELTS words) but your grammar and punctuation. English learning is a all-rounded process. You can't focus on 'some words', try to express your thoughts (any thoughts) in English and minimize grammar error.
Try to read through Simon's blog and comments. There are so many valuable tips which I believe they are helpful.
