IS IT IMPORTANT TO QUESTION THE IDEAS AND DECISIONS OF PEOPLE IN POSITION OF AUTHORITY?

I think it is very vital to doubt any decisions and ideas by the authorities such as government, policemen, courts and laws and others. All of us have right to deserve for a better life.

First and foremost, after World war II, there’s a lot of racism conflict around the world such as apertheid. It was a terrible discrimination towards black people by white people. The book entitled The Help by Kathryn Stockett revealed this discrimination. All the white characters in the novel, with the exception of Skeeter, were racists, even though many were not aware of it. They treat the black maids poorly because they believed that they were stupid and inferior. Throughout the novel, the whites were always referring to the maids or, blacks in general, in descriptive terms that usually apply to animals, suggesting that blacks had more in common with animals than humans. The whites in the novel built social barriers between themselves and the blacks mainly based upon their fears. Their fears were unfounded, which exposed their raw hatred that in turn was displayed in the daily abuse they inflicted on the black maids. However, Skeeter turned out with her brilliant ideas to write a novel about true stories of black maids. She opposed the perceptions of every single persons in her society. After the novel had been debuted, it became the national bestseller and soon the people in Mississippi realised that they should change their perceptions towards black people. If Skeeter didn’t take any action of it, all the black people will continue to live in as slaves in the society.

Besides, Stephen Hawking who is a genius physicist is a good example in this topic. He was diagnosed with motor neurone disease or commonly known as ALS during his 21st birthday. The doctors in the hospital predicted him to be alive for another two years. However, Stephen hawking did not believe the decision that someone else had made for him and continued his life and research as much as he could. He wanted to achieve his dream of proving the whole universe by a single equation. He kept thinking without fail even his whole body was deteriorating. Even he was being wheelchair bound and dependent on a computerised voice system for communication and other people to manage himself, he still could survive from the disease for about 50 years after he was diagnosed by it. According to Leo McCluskey, an associate professor of neurology and medical director of the ALS Centre at the University of Pennsylvania,it’s just an incredible example of the variability of the disease and the hope for patients who have it that they could also live a long life. Hence, if Stephen Hawking just gave up all his dreams after the diagnosed by the doctors, he would never contribute anything to the world about time relativity and the universe.

In a summary, we need to ask and believe in ourselves before accepting any decisions and ideas by other people. Some of the ideas may ameliorate our lives, but some of it will just jeopardised it. All of us have our own rights to choose and decide our own lives.

Hi ,
I've found these answers another website . I'm just wondering could you remember me where the answer Plants and wind appeared ??? Could you remember the meaning of the sentences ?

Can someone kindly comment in Academic Readings in yesterdays test

Well . Honestly I I've found the first passage little confusing . The second and third passages were fair comparing to the level of past ielts exams. But the problem is usually the first part is easy ant that what I didn't found it yesterday .
Anyway this my opinion.. I need to hear from you guys

Actually first part was the hardest among the others..

Hi Simon, I have made one spell error in each of the writing task,1 and 2 respectively. How bad will that affect my band score. Rest, I assume I have made a logical progression in the achieving the task. I have used linking words appropriately and have used less common words.And, have used a mixed variety of sentences. Used an introduction and conclusion with 3 supporting paragraphs. But, I am really scared of the spell error I have made. I need a band score of 7.

Any1 who gave speaking test plz share

does anybody remember tht listening ansers in today's ielts test.thx

does any body still remember listening section 2 and 3 topics or answers ?
what about the reading topics ?

does any body still remember listening section 2 and 3 topics or answers ?

Dear Simon, I would like to clarify certain doubts regarding IELTS writing and speaking. I had taken my IELTS academic module on 16th of May 2015. Previously I had taken IELTS GT in 2013,and have achieved the following bands: L-8.5/R-8.5/W-6.5/S-7=7.5.

This year I took IELTS academic to get resisted with Canadian nursing council. I need R-6.5/W-7/S-7/L-7.5. I am sure about my listening and reading. I did well in those parts. From my previous experience I assume that I am weak in academic writing.

In my speaking, I did well in my section 1, but was little confused as the examiner rushed up with questions, she started asking before I have completed my answers. IN section 2, I received a topic on an 'eduction series I have watched'. I talked well but at the end I ran out of content and used some sounds like 'ahh/umm' at least twice before ending my speech. In section 3,topics were pretty dry,based on T.V and advertisements. However,I managed talking fluently. But, I feel like I spoke very fast,may be I was nervous. But, I used quiet a variety of less common words. SO,my question is will those hesitations I had during the section 2, i.e, the sounds I made, will affect my band badly? I need band 7.

In my writing, I got an easy topic in both the tasks. I have achieved the task response in both,especially task 2. My queries are,I wrote 160-170 words only in task1. And, I made two spelling errors in both the tasks,i.e, one in each ( respondent- respondant; Alleviate- aelivate). Besides that, I assume I have progressed logically in paragraphs and have not made any major mistakes in punctuations or grammar.

So,depending upon the information I have given here, please suggest me how badly will the mistakes I have done would affect me? I cannot afford taking up another IELTS, as I need 7 in both speaking and writing.

I thank you in advance for the valuable help you are doing for me.

Thanks a lot.

Thanks @mandy for sharing! does anybody know something about the ACADEMIC writing tasks in the Pacific zone and in the American zone? Many thanks in advance!

Any prediction for writing task 2 on 30 th may genreal Test?

I am giving Ielts on may 30,june 6 and 13. I am following these updates about question asked on same day in countries ahead of time so that people livjng in time frame behind can get benefit. These people think questions are same and repeated but believe me they are never. I used to follow in one of my ielts but then i stop following updates from countries ahead in time frame from mine.
Did any one got lucky that same questions came in exam which were asked in other countries.?

Hi @scorpian! yes, you're right it doesn't make sense during the day of the exam because the questions are different depending on the time zone. I've been following the questions since January and I've seen that sometimes they repeat part of the exam in next dates in other regions. For example the questions, the question about animal extinction (if it's ok or not to spend money on that) appeared on the 31st of January in APAC, on the 18th April in the UK, and on the 25th of April in America (not exactly the same, but very similar). The same the questions about banning mobile phones in public places and another about the noise that people can make. Both appeared in two different places on different dates.
The same about task 1. A diagram about smoked fish appeared on 18/04/14 in APAC and on 09/05/15 in America.
So, I follow updates just to practice. Even when people post their questions two days later, for me is useful. You never know if that questions will appear later in a different region.
Some parts of the texts and listening where the same as well. Of course you cannot memorise all the listening and reading tests, but maybe have a previous idea or it can sound familiar to you...some people remember the reading test al find the article on the internet and post it...
So...I'd like to say to all the people here that sharing their questions whenever you have time, it's highly appreciated.
If someone knows the ACADEMIC writing tasks in APAC (Asian-Pacific) and in America, on the 21-05-15, please, I'd like to know something about that. Only people from MEI/Europe shared the questions on that date.
Thank you very much!! :)

You are right Lau02 . I have been writing down the essay questions since January and I've found that some of them were repeated . I sat on the 16th of May and my essay was about foreign film industry . I was shocked after the exam when I found the same essay appeared on 2012 . So , it is a good idea if anyone spend sometime on looking for the last 2 or 3 years . Here in simon website you can access easily to the old lessons .
Thank you .

Hi Lau02,

I use the black writing ieltsking prediction book to predict the answers because they are planned.

We always predict answers in Asia with a good chance.

It is a free book. I think the new one is available on the ieltsking.

any recent speaking topics pls

Dear Simon

Hello, good day.

This is more of a spelling and etc matter and it doesn't seem to go along with the most of questions here but all the other pages were full, so please understand.

The answer was '3 times' and unconsciously I just put 'three times'. Putting numbers in words would this matter? I understand that it is a risk or just can be accepted but is it always case by case? Where can I see the official IELTS policy about acceptable answers?

I appreciate your time. :)

Hello! Goodluck to everyone! Thank you for sharing your exam questions!

message from Hong Kong
Just sit for 9 May 2015
it finds the result quite horrible. I got writing 5.0. Now, i am planning the appeal for this paper.
In speaking, the examiner discussed the building I knew.
Hope helpful

I also find that the assessment standard from Youtube is not same as actual situation.
I think my speaking is quite more fluent than the youtube quy who claims the mark to be 7.0. However, i just get the score 6.5 only even I am confident my grammar and speed correct
