    Good afternoon Liz.
    Thank you for expending time, energy and resources in impacting knowledge.
    I have a question, I’m having my academic test tomorrow, however I’ve not been able to write my task 2 essay within the 40 minutes except I use a stopwatch.
    My question is would I be allowed to use my stopwatch or would a clock be available in the test room? Thank y you.

    • There should be a clock available in the test room. However, if you have a normal watch, it would be better so you can place it on your desk. It’s a concern that you can’t write your essay in 40 mins. One reason is often lack of planning. Students start writing their answer and then make mistakes or have to chance things. You should spend at least 5 minutes planning each point and also planning how you will explain it and support it. It makes writing your essay must quicker in the end.
      All the best
      Liz

  4. Please let me know from where to practice online for reading section where answers are also there? Any website or anything else?

    Thanks

  5. Madam,
    Your videos are nice, have you made video on how to write long essay with unknown topics as in IELTS, any tips ?
    Thanks

    • Hi,

      Unfortunately I don’t have a list of ideas for all topics for writing task 2. Ideas are important to develop and without them you will struggle to get a good score. However, remember that you only need to write 250 words – it does not need to be longer unless you want to write more. I recommend you look online to build ideas for topics. Here is a link to some essay ideas but I only have a few ready at present: http://ieltsliz.com/tag/topic-ideas/
      All the best

  8. Hi
    In writing task 2,we can use pencile or only pen?

  9. Hi liz.
    In ielts writing task2,if the question is agree or disagree and iam 100% agree l have to discuss the other opinion (dis agree) ?
    Thank you

    • Hi,

      In IELTS writing task 2, the examiner is looking for a clear position throughout the essay. Those three words are the key “clear position throughout”. A clear position is a clear opinion (agree , disagree or a specific opinion). The word “thoughout” means that this opinion stays the same through the whole essay. So, if you agree with the state, then each paragraph must explain why you agree and the conclusion summarises why you agree.
      All the best
      Liz
