Hi Simon! Thanks a lot for all sharing.
I'd like to ask a question about IELTS reading practice. I have been working on IELTS Cambridge. My Reading score is more or less 30/40, which is relatively band 7. I have been trying to improve my score to band 8, but most time I struggle with T/F/NG and Y/N/NG questions. Please give me some advice. Thanks!

Sir , can you give some ideas how to analyse it in details?

Sir , I had taken IELTS test 4 time but could not earn above 6 in any skill. How long to study to get 7 for me. Your help is great, sir. Thank you

Sir, I have two phases but i don't know which phase is correct. " 60th anniversary" and " 60 years anniversary". Please help me. Thank you


The statistics show that you are far more likely to achieve 7.0 in writing if your reading and listening scores are 7.5 or above. How long it takes to get there depends on several factors: the time and effort on your part, whether you can surround yourself with an English-speaking environment, the quality of tuition, and so on. In my experience it would take well over a year just to acquire the necessary vocabulary and collocations (or perhaps less for French and Spanish speakers).
