Hey sinister_rock, i took the test in Nov 8th too. I also got the answer as you gave but about question 25 in section 3. Are you sure with "font" because I heard it "form" because "font" has "t" as ending sound so it's easy to recognise. Are you sure about that?

@sinister_rock:
and about 26, I was absolutely "change" not "project"

Hi guys.who can share the writing topics which are hot ??

Anyone has speaking test on nov 12th? Please share..

Hey guys!

Could you just let me know whether it is content to use such introduction or not.

The question is.... 'When children use computers every day, this can have more negative thank positive aspects. Do you agree or disagree?'

And my introduction for this is..
'In recent years, computers have been settled as an essential part of people, the young in particular, in their everyday life. Although I agree with the statement that the use of computer by children entails more drawbacks overwhelming its advantages, I also believe that there are, of course, several significant positive aspects.'

I just wonder whether I can insist the positive aspects on this essay.

So confused....


Thanks in advance

@ Alan..v took exam frm India.

The bar chart represent statistics on the amount of which was spent on 5 various types of entertainment from 1995 to 2000

In 1995, total 184 billion dollars were spent on entertainment in the US, while his figure was 97 billion in Europe and only 67 billion in Asia. It can be seen from the chart that the main part of money was went to television and publishing in the world entertainment markets, when the remaining part was divided among music, video and cinema in the given period.
In the following five years entertainment expenditures increased dramatically, rising 73 billion to 257 billion in the US. Similarly, in Asia and Europe the money which was spent on entertainment went up by 43and 34 billion to 110 and 131 billion, respectively.

Hello, friends please give some feedbacks for this essay.. Do i need some changes on this or not?

Success means the desire was strong enough?To what extent do you agree or disagree?


In today's world, many peoples are getting chances to experience a joy of employment. Additionally, various sacrifices and knowledges can be the attributed for these generally positive trends. However, others believe that, without a lot of struggles as well, citizenries are able to embrace the goal.I will explain both sides of views and try to reach a conclusion.
It is true that, nowadays, in many parts of the globe, no one is staying on tensions in their lives. It means, they have become successfully experts to pull out a joy. Similarly, owing to their a good educations and cognizances on the concerned pre-plan, today they are now called as successful person. It is fact that, to get a high level of position, a typical person must has to graduates from a university. Considering this fact, peoples often prefer to gain their target, since their childhood. So their desire become strong enough to upgrade their intelligence, which is an enviable for them to grant the target. For instance, Ram Krishna Dhakal, one of the most popular singer of Nepal since his childhood, has now recently got an award of being best singer. He got this only because of his desire and sacrifice on this area. It means, only those could be fortunate one, who indulge themselves in desired plans.
However, other oppose these views. Firstly, they claim that, nowadays, peoples can easily be lucky enough in portraying the image of success. It is to say that, most peoples have their own known professional belongings, owing to which, it sustains them to acquired the level of that position. Similarly, it means that, no any solid desire and talent are indispensable to become famous in capability. Another aspect regarding this topic is, some inhabitants get an ample opportunity to be well known unexpectedly. For example, if certain people attend on seminar, where he or she have to exhibit his or her views and ideas, such thought could attract some third person, who would provoke him or her to be a part of concerned business, which fortify his or her lives consequently. Thus, a plethora of endeavaor and a huge strive can not be sometimes the factors of being success.
In conclusion, although behind some success has some prominent desire and struggle, but in some situation, this can not be the cardinal reasons.I personally think, without any sacrifice peoples also can achieve their goals.

Hi everyone,

Then he started asking me about seasons,about seasons in my country and what season I like most and why. then what people do in my country depending on seasonal changes.
My cue card question was: Describe an app that you use in your mobile/tablet. then the questions like what is that app how often do you use what for do you use and explain why this app is useful for you.
The follow up questions were about technology, like is it bad or good,what is the difference in teaching technology to young people and old people. what for do I use technology in my every day life.

idp Ielts test 13 nov 2014 in ludhiana (india)
Writing task two

Some people believe increasing business and cultural contacts between countries are a positive development .while others argue that it is a threat to identtity of a nation ?
Discuss both view and give ur opinion?


I write about globalization and its benefits for economy
In bp2 i write about some effects on culture ..i used sufficient vocab
But unsure about content relevancy.


Is it correct?

Task 1 was two pie charts revealing the proportion of energy sources of one country used for energy production .

Reading was tough as it contains about 15 (yes/no/not given questions)

Listening was fairly easy first two sections were mcq' while others contained almost easy blanks .


If anyone can shares answers it will be helpful


I'm just getting frustrated with Ielts. In my first sitting, I received Speaking 8, Reading 8, Listening 7.5 and Writing 6.5. On my 2nd attempt, I received Speaking 6.5, Reading 8.5, Listening 8.0 and Writing 7.0.
It's sounds ridiculous that my speaking suddenly can drop to 6.5. In cue card, I spoke for continuous 2 minutes fluently. I just don't get it.
Pls advise.

Hi Simon
THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!
I'm from Hong Kong and it was my first time sitting the ielts.
I only had 2 weeks to prepare for it and this was the only website that I read before I took my exam, but it really helped me a lot.
I lacked confidence in writing and speaking so I read a lot of your writing samples and followed your way of doing it (the paraphrase-overview-details-details approach)
I thought I did really badly in speaking but it was surprisingly better than my expectation.
I got an overall 9, with Listening9, Reading 9 Writing 8.5 and Speaking 8.5
I'm really satisfied with my results, thank you sooooo much!

ahhhhhhhhhhh such bad luck.. i got
Listening: 7.5
Reading: 6.5
Writing: 7.0
Speaking: 7.5
Overall: 7.0


damm u Reading passage 3.. was so tough, it was something about Fastfood and effects etc, but was very confusing and bamm 6.5 :(

I am hoping someone can help me with this query...
For the following essay, can we write maintaining a right mix of younger and older employees is better?

Some people think older employees are more useful to a company, some people believe younger employees are more useful in modern society. Discuss both views and give your opinion.

Lesson for you if repeating exam: Never write "th", "st", "nd" after the dates EVER in IELTS test. Never EVER!! By doing this, you will take the uncertainty out of he way. Pass this message to your friends as well.

It helps to structure your own answer to whole lot of answers

Writng
Ryan's task 1 and 2 books are very valuable with simon's e book.

There is nothing to say about the importance of simon's blog and his way of writing . Always keep in touch with simon's posts and always read the questions of recent exam questions posted here. There is a very high chance of repetition in speaking and task 2.
To my suprise i saw reading passages were also repeated.

Listening, practise by quickly focusing full attention to multiple choice questions and maps , which are the most difficult. What i did was to underline the key words and got the idea of each stem of the multiple choices, soon as the paper was given without looking at the first page. Even when the recording is going with the example, i kept on concentrating on MCQs , only when they start the recording for the second time, i started looking at the first 6 questions, since those are definitely easy, can concentrate while listening, which will never succeed in MCQs and maps.
Also used the extra time given to check the answers , to clearly read the next set of questions and to be clear on what areas we should focus on.
While reading circle whether it should be 1 , 2 or 3 worda only.
After all 40 answers are taken , then the following time will be adequate to re check the answers, with spellings and correct wording.
Recording might say "touching " but the answer should be " touch"
Also "every month" should be " monthly"
Also " 25th October" should be " 25 October"
That time is enough to check all those

If you need more information in writing , please contact me on gamage.tav@gmail.com
I am happy to share, what i feel worked on me, eventhough every thing differs according to the individual.
Best wishes to all.

@ Avanthi
Can you send me some tips, writing books about Academic writing???

Best wishes......

Hi Guys,

got my results for the test held on 1st Nov 2014. Its actually disappointing for me.
Listening 8.5
Reading 6.5
Writing 7.5
Speaking 7.

I want 7 in each band. I never scored under 34 correct answers in practice tests [within 1 hour's time] but I felt that the real exam was much more difficult.Specially the last section. What do you guys think?

Anyone had done 3rd section of reading first? as with the counting down it is even more difficult!

Thank you
Nishma from Sri Lanka

@ Nishma

I have given ielts 3 times and yet not succeed in getting 7 bands in each module. I may not be very good but I am definitely not bad to achieve 7 in each. I am pretty sure that IELTS has become the money making machine. They have a very intelligent and smart system which refrains people from getting 7 in each band. Do You agree ?

@ tinash
Sorry for the dekay.. you have written in the easy in the "Discussion " format......you wrote as" both sides will be discussed before a conclusion is made" this is correct in discussion only....this is clearly an argumental essay....so you should say .....your position ,,,,whether you agree or not in the introduction....not in the conclusion....

Then second and 3rd para can be on .....2 main facts to say why you agree ....

Hi Guys,

Would like to share my experience with IELTS on Nov 1st, because this website and practice tests were the only source of my preparation for this exam. Your insights, discussions were very useful for me to crack this at the first attempt.

Got my score as below:
Listening (8.5) Reading (8) Writing (7) Speaking (8) and overall 8

Have to say was lucky enough to know about this website only 5 days before my exam and till then only prepared using practice ielts tests.

My tips for listening is very simple, practice tests and that is it, concentrate on the audio and you will surely crack the listening. If you miss any question then leave it there and concentrate on the audio, orelse you will miss the whole section trying to find what the answer was for that one question.

For reading, have always had problems with True\False\NG so have decided before the exam that will only take that section at the end. My preference was fill in the blanks firt, then the headings section, followed by match the following. Because have always noticed that t\F\NG are very confusing and might not be a strong scoring point. so dont waste time on those and end up having no time and loosing marks on easy sections.

Writing: Have to say that time management is the most important in writing. Myself took 30 minutes for first task, i.e. letter for accommodation which nearly proved very costly for me. I then had to rush through my second task and was always running short of time. When the invigilator said last 10 minutes still had to write around 50 words and also the conclusion part. Rushed it and somehow could not conclude appropriately. when the timer was at 5 minutes, stopped my essay there and made sure to cross check the 2 essays for spellings and grammatical errors. I think it is very important to make sure that what you write is correct grammatically rather than focusing on how many sentences you wrote. Clearly could find around 3 -5 mistakes which I was able to correct first and then used up the last 2 minutes to write a quick conclusion. I thought not able to conclude properly might cost me a 7 but after the result was very happy that going through the essays again and correcting any errors was useful in impressing the examiner.

Let me know in case you guys have any queries so that can help you. Once again appreciate all your help and this website for helping me crack the exam at first attempt!!!

Hello, everyone!
Somebody says that we must not write dates in this way : 28th October , for example. However, in the answer sheets of many books that is correct...
What is really true? How to write dates in the IELTS: 28th October or 28 October?
