Thanks a lot Simon, your blog have been very useful for all, i have been following it and finally got 7.0 in writing 9.0 in listening 7.5 in speaking and reading. I am grateful to you from bottom of my heart, it was a big battle for me. I will always remember you for your kind support. wish you and family a merry Christmas and a happy New Year...

Hello simon
I would be pleased if you answer my Q.
I am following your way to answer TASK2 writing ( introduction - 2 main paragraph and conclusion ) but my tutor told me that I miss my opinion when Q ask for even when I stated in introduction and conclusion, he said that I have to add opinion to each idea I write and each paragraph.
honestly, I have been confused because I used to your way and it is hard to change it.
do you agree with him , or you advice me to keep on yo way?
thank you

Dear Friends
I am Petonia. I took my Ielts exam on 17th November and I got 7 in speaking. However, as I got 6 and 5.5 in other skills I need to take an exam again. Now, I am looking for someone to speak to for my speaking task in order to get 7.5 in the next exam.
If you are interested in, please contact me by email "petonia_t@yahoo.com" and we will able to talk with messengers online.

Congratulations on such great scores Maia! Happy Christmas and New Year to you too.

Good luck in the rest of your life,and of caurse I can't find any word to thank you Mr Simon.

Dear Simon
I would like to ask you about this formula
Should we say:
A and B showed an increase of 10% over the period . Or
A and B showed increases of 10% over the period.
Please help me, I'm struggling to talk about this

Dear Simon,

Can you please write the second paragraph on the concrete production as well? I tried to write the full 150 word essay but it seemed that I was short of words (I managed to write only 100 words). Do we need to compare the two processes here?

Thanks a lot.


Simon, I've had the same problem of Li. I've written the essay but it was very short. I don't have enough criativity to improve this specific question. What is your sugestion?
Thank you!!
