Hi Otabek,

You just need to keep practising and working hard. Try to follow the daily lessons on this site, use the Cambridge IELTS books for test practice, and try to find a teacher or native speaker who can check your work, correct your mistakes, and help you to improve.

Thanks Simon!

This is also one of the common mistakes that my students make! I hope they can read this lesson and avoid making such mistakes over and over again!


No problem Martin!

how to practice english speaking part alone sir?

Dear Simon,

whether we can use "Figures for" for chart showing some million number also? or we can use for only charts showing %?

Murali, you can use it for both. Simon mentioned this in one of his lessons.

Thanks Dan
