So very true!

Hi Simon,

Thank you for giving this valuable advice. I always keep that in mind. Knowing that my exam is due to at the end of this year, I try to remember as much advice as I can.

I was following this page more than a year because the method really worked for me, it helped me increase my overall band score from 4.0 (in May, 2015) to 6.5 (Sep, 2016). Now, I sometimes visit Simon's page like a habit.

Thank you very much, Simon.

Dear simon!

I wrote the whole essay about agree point of view.. i didnt write the other point... will i be able to get 7?? Last time i wrote both sides and i got 7..

Hi Simon

I am still new my first IELTS exam is going to be on 8/4/2017 please I need your help I am confused how to study and from where to start specially in writing and the passages.

Thank You :)

Love u Simon!!!!!

Help please :(

I absolutely agree with you and wish more test takers understood this. When someone who has an intermediate level of English says he/she needs a 7.5, for example, the first thing needed is to take steps to boost the overall language level. IELTS preparation on its own will not do that.

Dear Simon,

I am struggling to attain an overall band 8 for
the IELTS examinations. I have been achieving 9s and 8.5s for listening and reading, while getting 7s and 7.5s for writing and speaking, even with the extra private tutoring I am receiving. I would like to know if there is any consistent method for achieving my minimum score of 8 for each section. I am taking the general paper.
