Hi Simon,

Will listening to news improve my listening skill? I find it quite difficult, not just because of the speed but because there is no transcript so I don't know if I listen right or wrong or learn new vocabulary.

Hi simon. Got my ielts results already. I feel disappointed though. I got the following scores :L8 R7.5 S7.5 W6. It was my second try and i focused on the listening part since before i got L6 R8 S7 W6.5..i already tried all your exam tips and teaching about writing.im just wondering if there are addtl methods that we can learn from you. I am proud to say that i did not enrol in any review centers (like what most of my friends did) and only subscribed in your daily lessons which made me a better English user. Thank you Sir! Will look forward on your next writing lessons.

Congratulation Ione! But will you do it again? because I see your overall result being high. However I would say goodluck to you.

Good morning Simon and all. I have written task 1 pie chart can u plz guys comment on it and if u give me feedback that wd be great.

Question; task 1
The pie chart shows the amount of money that a children's charity located in the USA spent and received in one year.


The pie charts give information about the revenues and expenditures of the American based children's charity over a year.

It is clear that most revenues come to children's charity from donated food and significant proportion of it they spent on programme services. It is noticeable that total revenues are enough to cover the expenditures in one year.

The American children's charity received total 53561580 dollars donation and majority of it came as in a form of donated food, at 86.6%. second major contributor was community sources and programme services with 10.4% and 2.2% . By contrast, government , investments income and others gave only 0.2% each and 0.4% respectively over a year.

The total expenditure which children charity spent on different services was 53224896 dollars. The significant amount of money spent on programme services, at 95.8%. Only 2.6% used on fundraising and figures for management and general stood at 1.6%.

HI simon, can we write revenue or revenues


thanks

Hi Ione. Obviously, it's only writing that you have trouble with. it seems to me that your problem is grammmar and structure. Try using complex/compound sentences - and combine them with short ones. Good luck!

Hello Simon.

I am sahadat. I want to band overall 6.5. but my confidence level is band 5. how improve my skill and band score. Please Help me.


Hello Simon.
My name is Paek from Korea. I'm wondering if I have to write prepositions in the answer sheet. For example, if the question is "where do you need to pick up the ticket?", do I have to write "at the post office" or just "the post office", or even "post office"?? (in case of no more than 4 words) I'm thinking that this could be the reason why I've got a low score when I thought that I perfectly understood the passages and wrote the right answers.

Thank you qo duoc! I will. Definitely.. Yes Mon thanks for that. And I will add collocations too~! Thanks!!
