hi, I have a test on 10 of May in Iraq, Please share the Task2 writing and anything you remember will be helpful.

Task1: On 26 of April, I was given a table with the ratio of men and women in three years(10 years between each year, that makes total of 30 years) of a country in four areas of employment.
Task2: Negative impact of celebrities, due to their glamor and wealth on the younger generation. Do you agree or not.
Speaking; always try to read the last paragraph (as it is difficult and pressure of time makes it more difficult) and then 1st or 2nd. And copy the answers on your answer sheet. (I didn't know about it, I was told after 40 minutes to do so.)

Overall: 8.0

Thank you Simon for this wonderful website. I got some help for my writing as well and printed all the writing tasks. After 3 attempts I succeeded. Writing was always the problem for me. At first, I got L-8.5,R-8,W-6,S-7..2ND attempt L-7.5,R-8,W-6.5,S-7. From 6.5 to 8.5 in 3 months

Don't give up guys, remember that "Failure to prepare is preparing to fail". Reach for your dreams.Ask for God's help.

^
Those are really impressive scores, good luck.
I keep searching for my results, but it is always the NoResults page, I am not sure if my result is not there yet, or the problem is in the way I write my name :' (

Hello guys, I just want to share my experience in IELTS. after 4 attempts, i finally got an overall band of 7.0 that qualifies me to take post graduate studies abroad.

To be honest, this website really helped me a lot. Especially in WRITING. My advice in writing is just practice a lot and learn how to build the idea, structure, coherence and grammar like what Simon always say.

While in SPEAKING, download some applications that are available on ITunes that have TONS of topics. For me, you don't need someone to create a conversation, just record your voice and listen to it. Promise, it will help you develop yourself in speaking English fluently..

Then in READING and LISTENING, Cambridge books are good to help you practice these skills. There are times that you feel impatient in finishing the tasks, but this will help you to improve your skills on the actual exam.

And my last advice is, NEVER NEVER give up!! You will find more strategies and learnings while you do mistakes in your review.

Always ask God for guidance, especially on the exam itself.

Thank you SIMON! I hope there will be more students who will learn and appreciate your website.

Cheers

Dante from Philippines

@God answers prayers and @ Dante

Hi,
I had my speaking today all went well but in one of the question where the examiner asked to explain why do I think learning English is easier/difficult as compare to other languages.

While answering the above question, I put forward a point that English alphabet has comparatively lesser number of letters and said 24 letters instead of 26 by mistake (Tongue twisted .. an unfortunate event).. Does this affect my overall rating in speaking ???
I am really worried.. this is my second attempt and I really did well in other questions ...

My speaking question was:

Talk about the help you do to others
When do you help them?
Whom do you help?
What do you do to help others?

Can anyone help me with Reading,
Please give me some tips and suggestion.

Hi everyone : I have an IELTS test on 10th of May tomorrow in the UK , I will appreciate If anyone from Australia could share the writing task 2 question with me, Thank you very much in advance, This is my Email:

Ielts result for 26-04-14
W= 5.5 but ln February it was 6.6
Reading= 6 but last time it was 6.5
L= 6 but last time it was 7
Speaking= 5.5 but last time it was 6
I really don't know why,
Can anyone give me some advice
This time I thought it would be better but it was not

@grazzieh
How to aim such score in writing
Well, I never thought I will get 8.5. I was just aiming for an 8 although I just needed 7.
There are three things that I did
1) HAVE A MINDSET THAT YOU’RE GOING TO PASS IELTS WITH HIGH SCORES.
To do this I made a board, in it was these words and phrases:
50 days to go before (your test date)
L-9,R-9,W8,S-8.5 Overall 8.5

Doubt your DOUBTS. BELIEVE in your DREAMS. Don’t just dream. ACT NOW! Don’t procrastinate!

WASTED TIME is the most extravagant expense. Don’t waste time.

No matter how much a LAZY person wants something he will NEVER get it.
A HARD WORKER will get EVERYTHING he wants.

(This might be too much work but I have to do something that will push me to study. I used to tell myself, I will get L-9,R-9,W-8,S-8.5. At times I felt I was dreaming too much or I still cannot achieve those scores so I ended up sitting on my desk and practicing)

Do everything that will push you to do your best. Make a video of what will happen when you pass. Visualize it. Believe that it will happen.

2) I was not that good in WT1 so I printed all Simon’s writing and studied his e-book as well. I bought a notebook and wrote as much as possible. I TIMED MYSELF. At times I didn’t finish on time so I had to put “stop” on my paper but I still continued so that in case the same topic comes out I know how to deal with it.
Note: I didn’t do this but I guess this will help. Try to practice writing using the ielts paper as well so that you don’t need to waste time counting your words since you’re familiar with the paper. By just glancing at it you will remember that you reached the minimum words required.
3) My loving husband found an English expert to help me increase my scores. (if you are clueless of what you’ve been doing wrong and get stuck on band 6 0r 6.5, look for a tutor) My teacher told me that I was just doing few silly mistakes and that’s why I got 6.5.

@ sofia

For the reading I don’t have any problem since I was constant at 8.
I used to read the questions and underline the important words then I read the passage. During practice, I always aim to get 35/40. Make these your goal. I move forward when I can’t find the answer so I won’t waste time.
Above all, ask for God’s help every time you practice. That He may give you knowledge and wisdom to answer the test. May God bless you all.



I completed my IELTS speaking today (10 May @ Iraq), these are my questions that I remember:-
Part 1: Warming up
What is your full Name?
Can I see your passport?
Where do you live?
What do you dislike about the city?
What can be done to improve the city?
Computers
Do you like computers?
Are they beneficial?
Are they useful for children education?
Why are they better for education for children?
Being on Time
Do you were a watch? Why?
Do you like to be on time?
What do you feel if somebody is late with you? Why?
Part 2: Cue Card:
Talk about a sport that you like
Why you like it?
When do you play this sport?
What are the equipment & cloths you use when playing that sport
Part 3: Follow-up questions:
What type of sport is common in your culture?
Do people often play sport at your country?
What about women and sport at your company.
Do you think that Women sport will change in the future? Why?
What are the effect of government with regard do sport?
Why do children play sport professionally these day?
Is it good that children are taking sport professionals as models for them? Why?

Thank you Simon!!!

PLEASE GIVE US YOUR ADVICE

m from india. Is anybody having exam on 15th may? i hve my speaking exam on 14th may. could you please share Your questions with me. thx

Hi Nee.
Academic.
Just follow the Simon's advice, regarding this type and other type of questions.
Well you won't believe, I had to complete the fill in the blanks with appropriate words from the list for my last passage and I had only 5 minutes left. But due to time constraint, I manage to fill the blanks with most suitable words from the list without looking at the passage. That's why I wasn't sure about my reading task. But at the end I did great. :)
If you want me to advice you, then just go through all the sections of Simon's website, and you will do great. And do lots of practice.
Wish ya best of luck!

I had done speaking test by British council today at Kuwait . These were the questions.

Part One

Do you enjoy work ?.
Do you like rain?.
What time of year your country receive rain ?.
How does rain fall affect the country you live ?.
Do you wear watch? Why?.
Do you like to be on time? why ?.
What do you feel if somebody is late with you?. Why?.

Part 2 Cue card

Say something about which you like reading.

When you read ?.
Where you read ?.
Why you like ?.

Part 3

How has reading habits changed overtime ?.
How reading habits differ between old and young ?.
Differance between newspapers, magazines and books ?.

Good luck!...

Do you part and pray to God.
