Hi, Can you post answer for the above passage?

The number of people leaving the UK for 12 months or more reached a record high in 2008, with an estimated 427,000 people emigrating. This was up from 341,000 in 2007.
There has been a large increase in the number of people emigrating for work related reasons, particularly those with a definite job to go to. In 2008 an estimated 136,000 people emigrated from the UK to take up a definite job, compared with 100,000 in 2007.

Hello Simon,

Yesterday I wrote a task 2 topic about the Internet, and then I was wondering if the new words such as "vlog" and "youtubers" were regarded as "authentic" and"acceptable" words in IELTS. What do you think?

I look forward to seeing your response. Thank you!

All the best.

Hi Fann, I am still learner like you, but I think that depends your wording, and your example.

Another concerns is that IELTS is a essay not a dissertation

Overall, I would say you will be fine.

PS: If you get unsatisfied score, top priorities are checking your grammar and cohesion and coherence.

Hello Simon,

I have a question that's a bit irrelevant to your exercise. Is it alright if I use expressions like "hit the bottom", "join the competition", "gain shares" to describe consumption trends of goods in a line graph?

Looking forward to hearing from you. Thank you!
