Thank you for your kind words, Evan. I am flattered to have your attention. It is Simon who constructed the path to our success and we are all much obliged to him for his invaluable lessons.

hello every one,
I want to take IELTS test but I cannot, because I have stress and don't know how can I improve my IELTS skills.
please, help me, if any body read my comment.
can you help me how can I manage my time for learn English and what should I learn.

thank you

Thank you James Z. I read most of your comments on this site and realized that your journey had been similar to me. Many times you posted "tired", "frustrated", as how I felt the same. But your sharing when you passed really motivated me. I believe that if you, me and many others following this blog could overcome the difficult nature of IELTS, anyone who work hard will certainly be successfull

Thats very encouraging. Thanks for sharing your experience with us, Evan. Wish you all the best.

Great. Congratulations. Hard works alway pays off

Congratulations Evan .

I am not as hardworking as most of you out there ( July's temperature makes me sluggish and I gave myself a good summer break oops EXCUSES again :)

Does anyone have a lazy learning for hot summer ? Just trick my brain to learn more without thinking I am actually preparing for a boring British test ?

Congrats Evan! Your words are really inspiring and demonstrates how useful and impacting Simon's tips and advice have enriched you. I also share the same with you.

Wish you a successful adventure.

thank you so much for sharing your experience!

I am sorry for posting about something else.
Since I'm learning English for IELTS as well, I couldn't help but notice this point and would be appreciated if anyone could clarify it to me.

Is this sentence grammatically correct?
My journey to achieving my IELTS goal has been very difficult and frustrating as I have been stuck with either writing or reading".
I think it should be "frustrated", not "frustrating".

I've never taken any real IETLS test. So I am sorry if I am wrong.

Don't get fooled by other "IELTS TEACHERS" online. They exist for money and fame. Don't waste your money by buying their books and other IELTS preparation materials. I've been there, I've done that.

One simple thing to do, "TRUST SIMON and his website".

Enough said.

hi Evan! Congrats! what was your initial level in october 2016 when you start to study? Thank you

waaaw ,those words really inspired me to go on
thanks man and good luck

Hi, Evan


Your message represents how I feel. I recently took IELTS on August 12 and the result was surprising. I got overall band 7.5 which was higher than my initial goal. Writing and Speaking were my biggest weaknesses of the four parts of the test, but I got each part band 7, something that I wouldn't even dare to imagine months ago.

I totally agree with you that ielts-simon.com is just enough. I couldn't afford for preparation class and Simon's tips and techniques were the only help I could get.

Although I didn't have the same struggle as yours, the frustration was real, but I kept on practising. On the test day, I strictly followed Simon's advice on how to "read better, not read faster", Writing part 1 structure of paraphrase - overview - body parts, Writing part 2 of paraphrase - 2 body parts - conclusion, and how to tackle Speaking test like you mentioned in your message.

It turned out that nothing could go wrong if I followed Simon's techniques. The fact that I came to know this website for only a month and could only practise after work and during the weekends means this website is highly effective.

I strongly recommend ielts-simon.com for anyone who is preparing for IELTS.

Thank you Evan for sharing your experience and I hope you would succeed in whatever you are preparing with your IELTS result.

And thank you Simon for your great help through this website. I wrote about your website on my blog, https://lifethusiast.blogspot.co.id/2017/08/berlatih-ielts-secara-otodidak.html, and I hope more people will get to know your useful website.


Hi Gabriela,
