Thank you tremendously, Simon!

I was looking for IELTS tips and guides, and I just found your blog. It is literally a treasure! Honestly, I don't have enough time to go through all your tips and lessons because I just discovered your website! I was reading Cambridge and Barron's books for the past two months.

By the way, my name is Sara. I am from Saudi Arabia. I will be taking the IELTS Academic Test on July 30th and August 13th. I would highly appreciate it if anyone can be so kind to share questions, tips or ideas, anything would really help.I took the IELTS twice 4 years ago and I got 6.5.

Now, my target band is 8.

Please contact me at

My whatsapp number is private and I don't want to share it online.
Can anyone who has a whatsapp group email me his/her number to add me on their group?

Thank you.


hi, i am from india.My exam is on 28th of August,
plz help us with writing topics and reading passages

Dear Simon,

Thank you for your fantastic blog, tips and advice. Within two weeks, I got reading from 7 to 8, and writing from 6 to 6.5. Overall, I got 7.5. This was my second attempt and I am satisfied. I was not aware about your blog when I prepared for my first test. You are the Northern light :-)

Hi all,

If at all, its helpful, my tips are:
i). Reading: the keys are vocabulary and grammar. Some questions are just a pure test of synonyms. Some are just grammar test.
ii). Writing: If you'd just follow Simon's structure then you would get at least 6.5 like me, I think. I wasn't aware about this structure until I read from Simon's blog. His sample writings are super useful, both task 1 and 2. Secondly, try to make sure you answer the question, the micro topic, not the broader topic. Task 2 questions are super tricky. In particular, if you need 7 or higher.

Lastly, good luck to all of you, keep it up!
