Dear Simon Corcoran ,

I want to author a book about the preparation for the IELTS Exam and have thought of finding a co-author for my book with the purpose of releasing a comprehensive book about IELTS that could achieve high sales on the book market. Fortunately, I have gotten the opportunity to see your distinguished works on your website and thought of you as a co-author.

Here is the book design :

Section (1) is your section:

In this section, your hilarious experience about IELTS will be tackled.

Section (2) is my section :

In this section, I will be addressing particular IELTS examinees who need to treat their problems related to handling the IELTS Exam.

Basically , I will address:

(a) the problems of the Middle Easterners and how they can be treated .I have been collecting a lot of information about the Middle Easterners' weak points and the reasons of their staggering in the Exam.

(b) the problems of the Chinese examinees .I have thought so much of excluding the Chinese examinees from the book ,since they have serious problems that can not be handled in just a few pages in a book.It is not easy for the Chinese to pass this Exam since the first time. They may take it 4 or 5 times, and this is attributed to their educational background and the fashion of learning English . They basically depend on writing skills on the account of all the other receptive and productive skills.This means that they need to treat the problems of developing the English skills before taking the IELTS Exam.Then I have thought of including this sub-section again for those who can genuinely benefit from it , taking into consideration that I have an experience with the Chinese in Canada and China.

(c) the problems of Latin American examinees. Although it is a small precentage of the Latin Americans who join universities in the English-speaking world , I have thought of dedicating a small sub-section for them .That is because I have had the opportunity of giving private tutoring for Latin Americans wanting to take IELTS Exam. Moreover, I speak Spanish and that helped me so much to understand their train of thoughts when they process the IELTS questions.

The book title can naturally be modified by you. I am just suggesting its title :

Main Title : Practical Guide to Pass the IELTS Exam
Sub-title : [Functional Tips with Sample Model Answers for all IELTS Examinees]
[ Probem-solving Guidance for the Middle-Easterners, the Chinese & the Latin Americans]

I look forward to hearing from you , Simon.

Please find attached to this email my portfolios.

Thank you Simon, your work on this page saved my future academic career. I will raccommend this page to every IELTS student that I will meet.

Now I give you back what’s on my faculty.

The type of test : General Training
Date of test : 30.07.16
Location of test : Boston, USA

Writing Task 1 :
The manager of the company wants to make a change to help the environment and ask to his employees some suggestions.
Include in the letter:
– What could be changed
– the effect on the environment
– how can it be done

Writing Task 2:
Some people think that giving a mobile phone to children is not a good thing, while others believe the opposite. What is your opinion?

Thank you again Simon!

Osman,perhaps your aim is to help students but mind you, no book can solve all the issues or most of them. If a book can, then why on earth we see still these issues? So far we have a horde of books available and none did the job because English a language which is closely associated with the western culture. Students from overseas learn English but they 'forcefully translate' ideas from their L1 to English (some time word to word , phrases to phrases or even sentence to sentence translation). Unless they learn English with its 'culture' they hardly overcome the language barrier. We sometimes call it ' making sense in English'. ESL students do not understand this because their 'sense' is in their language which is correct so how are they supposed to learn 'sense' in English? In fact, they write English with a non-native sense.

Apart from that, no IELTS examiners would reveal the official assessment -- be it an IELTS writer or ex-examiner. Most of them would try to 'brush up' than going into the details of the rubric.

If your aim is not about money but helping students, then you might as well research about this. Chinese students prefer to memorise essays. Even though a few students can use English, they try to use as many academic words they know because they think more difficult words will increase their bands. This is not true, however. They seldom reduce the density of errors and think errors don't affect the score. They may not even understand faulty collocations or etc.

Hi Kiran, Ali, yosuf

Sorry couldn't visit the website for last few days, I was in shock. Yes my result is withheld by Ielts investigation team. I appeared in Manchester. No idea, when they are going to release the result. Its pretty unfair. They couldn't even tell me a probable date for result. I am pretty upset. I heard they took a month starting from the test day. So hopefully around 12 August, we r going to hear from them and around 16th August, we r going to see our result, if everything goes fine.. Please do post here if anyone get any info regarding release of result. Thanks

Hi Rini, one of friend appeared on 18th June UKVI IELTS and he got his result on 21st July and another friend of mine gave IELTS on 25th June, she received her result on 26th July by post.

Both of them received an email on 13th day of test mentioning withholding of result and another mail 3-4 days before getting the result from the test center. Most probably we r going to see similar sort of thing.
Post here if u find any info. Thanks

Rini and kiran

If u have given academic IELTS, you are able to preview it online. I dont know exactly which date. I am assuming they will let us know an update abt the result out. I have given UKVI IELTS, so I cannot preview it online unfortunately. I have to wait for getting the result by post. However I have appeared again on 4th August. I don't take any risk. I have seen many posts of previous candidates those had waited for 3 months for their result. So its better to be in safe side. Although, I am not in safe side either. Few of the candidate's 2 subsequent IELTS result was withhold too for 3 months. So nothing is absolute. I'll recommend you guys to take the IELTS again.

Any body appearing for General module on 20th Aug 2016

Hi guys, I have just left speaking exam on 11th of August in Baku. So until that day If anyone remember cue card topics, would you please post here. Thanks in ADVANCE and GODD LUCK to everyone who has left any exams.
