Dear all,

I need some advice for my coming General training IELTS test. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Firstoff, I give the information about my past IELTS test results:
March 2009 academic:
L = 6.5
R = 6
W = 6.5
S = 6.5

March 2014 general:
L = 7
R = 6
W = 7
S = 7

April 2017 general:
L = 8.5
R = 6.5
W = 6.5
S = 6.5


My weakness is Reading and I am disappointed. My next test is 6 July 2019. I really do not know if studying about 2 hours/day for 1 and half month is sufficient in order to improve my reading and writing. I need the result for immigration purposes and I need 7 in R,W,S and 8 in L.

Please advice me how I can improve my Reading, in addition to Simon's website which I found very helpful?

Thank you all.

hi sir. I have trouble doing the true/false/Not Given questions.Any advice?Thanks
