Hi


Simon.


In recent IELTS EXAM this is the question ask plz look in the question and answer if possible


Many people believe that they should spend their money to enjoy life at present. Others, however, think that they should save it for the future. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.

My introduction

It is true that we have to enjoy our present life and that's the reason we have to spend out earning after our present enjoyment. However, I agree that our future is uncertain and after retirement age we have no any source of income so we have to spare some money for our insecure life

Paragraph 1 - why we have to spend money after our present life
Paragraph 2 - why we have save money for future uncertainty
Conclusion

Plz help me out

5. STAKEs

1 ECONOMICAL ALTERNATIVE
2 GAFFES
3 BUSINESS
4 TEXT CHARM
5 STAKE

I heard gaPHS instead of gaps! I had doubt about because I knew there is no word like GAPHS in English. She has got really a bad accent. Why did she simply not say P rather than PH?? Also, I have difficulty with "text chatS" or text chat. She did not say it clearly.

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

1. economical alternative
2. gaffes*
3. business
4. texts / chats / text chats
5. stake**

* a "gaffe" is an unintended (and embarrassing) mistake

** "at stake" means "at risk" e.g. "his reputation is at stake" = "his reputation is at risk of being damaged"

Dear Simon,
I am thankful to you for providing us such helpful material regarding IELTS test. I have a question related to listening section. While attempting multiple choice questions, I have a habit of writing all the key points I listen while the recording is being played,with each question. After the recording ends,I match those key points with the choices given and it gives me a clear idea of the correct option.I want to ask your advice that is this method beneficial in the real test and can I apply it? I request you to please answer my question as I am really worried for this part of my test because I am unable to apply the technique which you and all other teachers recommend inspite of trying.
Waiting for your quick reply.
Thankyou.
Ramsha.
