Hi Simon,

Thank you very much for putting up this site. I found it last night and my test is tomorrow. I wish i had found it earlier. You've put up some really good examples and tips which have helped me iron out some issues and understand what the examiner is looking for.

I didn't get the time to join-in and answer your questions but still wanted to thank you for the time and effort you have dedicated to this site.

Wishing you all the best.

PS - my answers to this question were B & C. :)

The ‘learning styles’ theory is based on the observation that most people prefer an identifiable method of interacting with, taking in, and processing stimuli or information.

some time i do not well in ielts... because of pressure of time... it forces me that do not read passage

Hi Simon,
I've just started using your blog and absolutely loved it. Thank you for providing us with these great exercises and amazing content.
I've started reading the blog from the very beginning and would love to ask a question here. Not sure if you check old topics as well but would love to hear from you.
--------
The text reads;
The idea of individualised ‘learning styles’ originated in the 1970s, and acquired enormous popularity.
--------
The question reads;
The idea that people should learn according to their preferred learning style became popular around 40 years ago.
--------
I have answered both questions correctly but my query is that can we understand from the passage that ''preferred learning styles'' gained popularity 40 years ago? What's mentioned is that the idea of ''learning styles'' initiated 40 years ago but there is no specific date as to ''when it gained popularity''. The other 2 choices were definitely not correct so I chose B as well but would love to hear from you if that exercise was a T/F/NG. How would your approach be?
Thanks in advance.
