Hi, Mr Simon.

They say it is better to do the practices of official cambridge books from cambridge IELTS 7 to cambridge IELTS 10 because the test style is similar to today's tests. What do you think about this view?

Thank you!


Hi, Mr Simon.

Most people recommend to do the practices of official cambridge books from IELTS 7 to IELTS 10 rather than other cambridge practice books because the test style is similar to today's tests. What do you think about this?

Thank you!

Hi Simon,

Is it a good idea to use linking words as "actually" and "definitely"? I will paraphrase two answers from your speaking lesson 2 as an example.

Do you like sport?
No, I'm not really a sports fan.
Actually, I'm not really a sports fan.

Do you think children should all have to do sports at school?
Yes, I think children should all be encouraged to try ...
Definitely, I think children should all be encouraged to try ...

Thanks in advance.


ROSHAVBG can i ask you some questions if you don't mind.

my email hobbitblue@mail.ru



Books 4 to 10 are all fine, in my opinion.



Both words are fine, but they won't raise your score. Yes and no are just as good.


Books 1 to 3 are not so good to practice?


what about speaking fast in the exam?

This is my problem and ı hardly finish time.

Will This effect my score in a bad Way?

hi Simon
are you agree with this division of speaking Part in the IELTS exam?
part one: informal,friendly–consider this to be like two friends chatting over lunch.

Part Two: semi formal, informational – consider this to be like you making a presentation to colleagues you work with.

Part Three: formal, academic – consider this to be like a job interview, where you are using your most formal language, sentence construction and grammar.

please help me to right understanding from speaking part in IELTS...

there is one thing that I need to know more, could I watch the video lesson several time if I paid for that ?
Actually, I think I don't have the ability to get every points for just watch one time.
