Dear Simon,
Please give me your email for me. So I can easily contact with you to ask some questions.
Thank you.
Have a nice day

Hi Simon,

I agree with everything you have said and I did exactly in the same way when I was preparing for IELTS. My question at the moment is, do you have any suggestions about improving English a bit further after IELTS? I know maybe this question is too generalised but just need advice on some sources to read around and learn from.

Thanks very much!

One way to begin activating topic-specific vocabulary is to try to summarize a good news article on the topic in less than 100 words.

Hi James Z.
You can look for C1 and C2 books (Cae and Cpe). They are more advanced than IELTS.

Thank you Simon. Very helpful lesson.

hello simon
so what we can use instead of advantages and disadvantages?

Hi Simon,
Is the word positives a noun?

Hello Simon,

I believe that 'topic-specific' vocabulary is more important than 'generic' language according to your advice and advice from my tutor from ninjaessays. But I have a problem with filling enough vocabulary in my essays and not using pros and cons is also little bit hard as. Like a habit.
Do you have any advice for me?
