Governments should spent more in sports and arts for children in school rather than in professionals. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Government should give an equal importance to both sports nd arts in school,and professinal athelets and must spend equally on both ,so should i DISAGREE with the question or PARTLY agree in order to answer the question,,
i understand SIMON s too busy so please OTHERS feel free to answer my question,
Sunday, December 02, 2012 at 12:17

@ Maysam, where you took your exam? It seems yours and mine was the same.
@ Ammar my speaking cue card was to describe a recent programme or sports I watched on the TV.
1. Where was it
2. Why it was important to me
3. Who was with me
On the 3rd part related to the topic was-
why people need entertainment, why most people choose weekend for this, what people in my country do on the weekend, what is the significance of weekend in people's life etc.
wish u good luck

Took the IELTS General test at Canada on 1st Dec, 2012. Here are the writing Task 1 and Task 2 Qs for the test held
You have recently celebrated 90th birthday of one of your relatives. Write a letter to the hotel manager where you celebrated the event.
Give details of the event?
Explain what was different so the seniors enjoyed it?
How did one member of staff made this even more memorable?
There are people who have achieved success in life inspite of not going to school.
What are the factors for success?
What do you think makes for success in life?
I am writing from memory and the above may not be the exact wording of the Qs as in the test, however I have tried to give the essence of the Qs themselves.

I can hardly express my gratitude for the invaluable help I’ve got from your blog.
I appreciate all the time and effort you have put in every single lesson. I didn’t have much time to prepare and on top of that I decided to take the Academic just as a challenge, even though I am taking the IELTS for work related purposes. I had only one opportunity to take the test and I couldn’t count on a second attempt.
I feel that I owe my results in the writing section to you and Dominic Cole.
It initially took me a while to sift through all the teaching resources available online. After my research I decided to trust you both. Now that I know my results I don’t regret my decision:
I think I’ve read everything on your blog and I find the WRITING TASK 1 and TASK 2 related articles enormously useful.
And a final twist in my story…during my preparation I have written all in all 3 essays. I am not saying this is the right way to go though. But the truth is that it isn’t a matter of chaotically producing quantity. One has to analyze his own mistakes and deconstruct good essay examples – the kind of examples I found here and on Dominic’s site. Then I would suggest reading very carefully the “how to put together” kind of advise that accompanies a lot of the texts here.
Once again I admire your straightforward approach to teaching and the fact that you are shearing this knowledge for free. If I could I would pay for your services.

Thanks for your feedback Petya, and congratulations on such great scores!
Monday, December 03, 2012 at 15:05
For listening and reading, you must use pencils. For writing, you can use either one.
Monday, December 03, 2012 at 15:58
Monday, December 03, 2012 at 16:46
for the ones who have already took the test: in the READING, did you find the questions in order in the reading passage?
I really appreciate an answer because I'm ensure about what technique to use for this part of the test!
Thank you in advance!
@shir: either of the two is possible but I'd prefer to use a pencil because I can simply erase what I've written with a rubber
Monday, December 03, 2012 at 17:51
Does it influence the score if the examiner notices that a candidate's speech has been copied from books?

Dear Simon, I just have one quick question, is it possible that the IELTS test version is not always the same version code ? In my case, I took the test on Nov 24, 2012 in Indonesia.Whilst I got Listening, Writing & Speaking version 12112 (0381/4 ; 0382/2), however I got Reading version 30329, which is not the same version like the others section,in addition the reading part was very hard to me to accomplish. I got my result as follow: L 7.5 R 5.5 W 6.0 S 7.0 Overall 6.5, Huge gratitudes for you, Mr. Simon for your remarkable efforts to IELTS takers. Eventhough, I still need to take another test in the near future.

Dear all future IELTS test takers, especially those who will take the Academic IELTS on the 5th of January, 2013 in New Zeland or Australia!!!

If someone post the questions before my exam, I'll get extra hours,therefore, will get a chance to be ready. Thanks a lot and I wish all test takers to get the maximum score on the IELTS!!!!

Monday, December 10, 2012 at 10:21

All I do is, follow this blog and practice from those books. And, yes if you search in this blog you will find some post, where, Simon recommend these books.
So, don't worry and prepare.
Hope this help,

I just want to share my experience in taking the IELTS Academic Module. The first time I took it last October 13, I got fairly low scores in Writing and Speaking tests (as I need a band score of 7 in each category): L=7.5, R=8.5, W=6.5, S=6. But this didn't caused me to give up. I studied harder and speculated every mistake that I may have incurred during my practice tests. I therefore took another exam of the same module last December 1 to give it one more try. Today, I got my results and here they are:
I'm so happy and satisfied with the scores that I got. Thank you so much for this great and helpful website Simon. I'd certainly recommend this blogsite to my friends and colleagues who would also want to take the exam.
Just a piece of advice to those who will be taking the exam whether it's the GT or Academic module- Complacency and just relying too much on luck won't ever improve or give you your target scores. You really need to study hard and learn from your mistakes, and of course, stick on to your faith. Good luck and Godbless to everyone :)
Friday, December 14, 2012 at 02:57
Hello Simon & Friends,

Friday, December 14, 2012 at 18:24
Hi Reena Chetan Gandhi
That's great band score you've got.
Can you share your experience to do the Ielts test well ?
I don't know that the level of difficulty in reading and listening of the real test same with those in Cambridge books?
I've never taken the test before. I feel that the two sample tests of British Council is much more difficult than Cambridge books. So I can't imagine the difficulty of the real test look like.
I Wish that you can help me and everyone
Thank you !

Which type did you choose to do that essay in your real test?
I don't think we can give balanced idea in this type of question.

@ Sofia, I can't give u my email add yet due to some personal reasons, but I'll be making another account so we can communicate regarding your concerns in IELTS.
By the way, I just want to share some of the questions/things that I had encountered when I took the IELTS exam last December 1:
"What is your full name?"
"How do u want me to call you?"
"Describe the place where you live in."
"Do you work or study?"
"What is that thing that you like the most about your present job?"
"In what situations do you become stressed out with your present job?"
"Why do you think other people would like to have a the kind of job that you have right now?
"What do you usually do during your leisure time?"
"What do you usually do when you make use of the Internet?"
"Do you know anyone who doesn't know how to use the Internet? Why do you say so?"
"When do you use email and an electronic postcard?" (I think this question tests your ability to compare two things)
Describe an unusual job that you would like to try.
-What is that job?
-Why are you interested to try that job?
-What makes it unusual?
Explain how would you able to take the this kind of job.
"Do you think other people would also like to try this unusual job? Why?"
"What skills are needed in this kind of job?"
"Do you think that on-the-job training are important? Why?"
"Do you think that there are jobs that do not really need a formal education? Why?"
Nowadays, most organizations provide their staff an opportunity to work in their homes for at least a day in a week. Do you think this a positive or a negative development?
(As far as I remember, these were the questions that were asked of me during my speaking and writing tests.)
goodluck to everyone

I had same odd result on the test I took on 1December
L8R7.5 W6.5 S5.5
I was very sad because I usually score 7-7.5 in speaking
Took the exam to increase my writing score from 6.5 to 7 but to my surprise the speaking score decreased from 7.5 to 5.5and W score remained the same
IT IS IELTS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!,!,!,
