  1. Hi Liz,thank you for your wonderful teaching.ln speaking is it ok to call the examiner as madam or sir.

  2. hi liz
    IS IT GOOD TO GIVE A COMPLEMENT TO EXAMINER LIKE YOU ARE LOOKING GOOD OR YOU DRESS IN OUT OF WORLD. IS THIS INCREASE MY BAND SCORE IN SPEAKING

    • It will not alter your score at all. Particularly, when your compliments show mistakes in English or are learned phrases which are not appropriate for the situation.

  3. Very helpful, thank you

  4. Hi Liz,

    I’m thankful to you for guiding me through..I’m trying to go through all your work although I do not have time to like or comment each topic. Do we need to get western examples or using our own eastern examples is fine. Which we can we score high marks? My favourite movie, favourite novel or person..etc.

    • The examiner is not interested in your ideas for speaking. All the examiner wants is to hear your English. So, you can give any ideas you want and have any views you want. Just relax and be natural and chatty.

    Hi teachrt
    thank you very much for your efforts
    just i want to ask you about the best way to pracice speaking because i dont have a partner and live in arabic country

    • Hi,

      There are a number of things you can do to practice speaking on your own. Here’s a free video to explain how: http://ieltsliz.com/develop-your-ielts-speaking-for-free/. I also recommend students to keep an audio diary – you recorded what you did each day, who you talked to, what you plans are for the next days etc into a recording device. Do this everyday and listen back to it at the end of the week to see how you can improve it. If you practice adding more and more information to your diary, you will start to see improvement.
      All the best
      Liz

  19. Hi Liz,

    You wrote ‘camp fire’ in above picture and ‘campfires’ while we explained word firewood. Is it the same to write campfire or camp fire? Or are they really as you wrote; camp fire and campfires ?

    Thank you
    Anas

    • Thanks – it’s a typo.
      Liz

      • Thanks for clarification. So I can also understand it is campfire but camp stove, isn’t it?

        • Hi Anas,

          The word is campfire written as one word. This is a fire usually made from wood for cooking at a campsite. A camp stove is written as two words and is usually a portable gas stove for cooking whilst camping. Hope that helps.
          Liz

  20. thanks my teacher and keep on
