Thank you very much, Teacher Simon. I think that the way you put words together is very beautiful <3 <3 and I always try to memorise your phrases by imagining the context they illustrate! I find that way easy to feel the phrases and remember them^.^

I hope you have a nice weekend!

Excellent lesson! Simon, thank you so much for your effort to teach us very valuable lessons. I will take IELTS test in about a week. I am hoping for the best!

My regards


Hiii sir, someone say that u cannot use idioms in weiting task 2.Is that true or false?

This is what we want to learn,
Thank you sooo much

Yes, I totally with you, Simon. Such words are good to learn."Memorized words", in contrast, means that you rote-learn the whole sentence or you fail to put it in the proper context. So, it's better for us to study just phrases rather rather full sentences and try to use them appropriately, not like a kind of mechanism.

Thanks guys, I'm glad you found this advice useful.
