What is a good overview, Teacher Simon? Thank you<3 <3

I mean, what do I need to include in overview so that I won't lose mark for this part in terms of its content?

Dear Sir,I have a question about the intro statement. can i use present perfect tense in intro like this... (The comparison of 'x' and 'y'in terms of 'car use' has been given by a table chart.) plzzz send me a nine band solution of task one so as to get better score

Sorry for every one, today i have appeared in IELTS exam i want to post the questions, where can i do it?

hi simon
here in my city my teacher got a email by Cambridge univer. and they written that if you want to get bands you have to follow this pattern


I'll do another lesson about overviews next week.



No, I don't recommend writing the introduction like that.



Cambridge IELTS staff don't write to teachers with tips like that. And they don't train examiners to favour a particular essay structure. Please believe me on this - I was an examiner myself, and I speak to current examiners all the time.


Please click on "recent exam questions 2" in the "information" menu on the left of this webpage.

Firstly, they allow learners to study in a flexible way, meaning that they can work whenever and wherever (is/ are) convenient, and they can cover the material at their own pace.

In this sentence, I am a bit confused the selection between is or are. Could you please explain to me? Thanks.

Thank you very much, Teacher Simon! I look forward to next week's lesson!

the overview reflects the core of your article. So I thought it is very important to make some attractions.

Hi Simon,

It is ok if we task 1 gives the information in separate years like 2000, 2005. And we state that from 2000 to 2005.

Thank a lot,
