Dear Sir,

I have finished the payment.

I am looking forward to your confirmation and the course.

Thanks again, Sir.

Thanks thong chung. I think you're the first!

Dear Sir,
Can i acess the course later on also or it will be available only for 1 week?

Due to my work schedule i will not be able to join course during those dates.

Hasnat,

Yes, I’m sure we can solve that problem. Just email me: ieltssimon@gmail.com

Dear sir
After going through the course ones,will all that videos or related material be permanently accessible to me. In other words can I have that stuff lifelong for any further revision on my own

Hi Simon,

I’ve paid for the upcoming WT2 course and am really looking forward to it! Before the course starts, could you please make lessons again on the “discussion + opinion” essay to help clear things up?

I’m now taking a writing course in my city and the academy uses your method and essays as the backbone of its course. However, yesterday I had an argument with the teacher about the difference between “discussion w/ opinion” & “discussion w/o opinion.” The teacher said that the two types are the same, because even when I discuss both views, those views actually all have my personal opinions in them. He then went that phrases like “it is argued/believed that” don’t exclude my own opinions, unless I write things like “I believe that…”, “In my opinion…”, or “it seems to me that”, which clearly state my personal opinions.

And then he said that the way you wrote the two main body paragraphs in the “discussion w/o opinion” essay in the below file is actually same as writing “discussion w/ opinion” one with a balanced view .

I recall your “museum” essay which is a “discussion + opinion” with a balanced view.
https://ielts-simon.com/ielts-help-and-english-pr/2011/05/ielts-writing-task-2-museums-essay.html

I noticed that in the two main body paragraphs, you don’t mention “I” or “my”. Only in the introduction and conclusion can I find “in my opinion” and “it seems to me that.”

So it seems that what the other teacher said makes sense, but somehow I’m still not sure about it. Also, could you please show us some other ways, which clearly include “I” or “my”, to write main body paragraphs for a “discussion + opinion” essay with a balanced view? I practiced the museum essay last week. I also hold a balanced view on it, but then I found it really difficult to write the topic sentences for the two main body paragraphs.

Hope to hear back from you. Thank you very very much Simon!

Hi Simon,
Thank you for preparing the WT2 course. I bet it will be to the point and exciting. I'd like to enrol to the WT2 course but I'd like to know if those course material will be available after the 16th of June? I reckon this bit is important as revisiting lessons would be really helpful for learners of English.
Cheers,
Onder

Hi Simon, is this course different with your video course cos I had bought it last time? Please suggest. Thank you.

Hi Simon,

Is it lifetime access course? Can I access anytime I want?

Thanks,

Michael

FROM SIMON:

Jasmine,

Yes, this is a different course with a new focus - for the first time, I'll be using the band descriptors as a teaching tool. The teaching style will also be a bit different - I'll be sending daily emails with worksheets and little homework tasks. Finally, you'll also have the chance to send me an essay, which I'll check in order to see if you've followed my advice properly.

...

Michael,

You'll receive the worksheets by email, and so you'll have be able to download and save them. The videos will be accessed via a link, and I can allow access for as long as you need.

Dear Simon
Can I access you video lessons after 25th of June ?

Dear Simon

Hi Simon,

I have paid and can't wait for the writing course.
I am going to apply for the TESL program of University of Toronto, which requires 8 for speaking and 7 for others. My IELTS scores (10 years ago) were L6.5 R6.0 W6.0 S5.5. This time I want to stick with you because the training I took in 2009 in Guangzhou was terrible!

Hi, Simon, I hope I am on your participant list . Paid up already.

Transaction:
6JA632176K908222G

I am also wondering if you could let me know how to use your e-book (which I have bought from you previously) together with your website?

You say in the book it's best I use the e-book together with your website, it there a specific section here you are referring to?

Thanks a lot

Dawei and ShangJu,

Hopefully you have received confirmation emails from me. I think I also answered your question by email ShangJu.

Hi Simon,

Could you please give me advice: I teach IELTS and somentimes I find it difficult to score Writing Task 1,2 as well as Speaking. In this case should I participate in "New IELTS writing course" or buy "How to teach IELTS" course? I appreciate your advice.

Hello,

I would love to attend, but I have only Turkish credits cards which are not accepted by PayPal. Is there any alternative method of payment for people in my situation ?

Iryna,

Both of those courses contain advice about scoring, so it's your choice!

...

Carmen,

I'm afraid the only solution is to ask a friend or family member in a different country to pay for you. Sorry about the inconvenience.

Hi Simon,

Just paid the course.

Hi, Simon, I hope I am on your participant list. Just paid the course! Looking forward to learning from authentic IELTS examiner!
