  1. hello Liz,well I have this question that what happens when we get a good point on the test I mean does the university gonna support us their? where are we gonna stay.you know honestly I dont have the money so I want to know about it all.please answer me.If you answer me you are gonna save my life .thanks

    • My website offers information and lessons for the IELTS test. That’s all. You will need to contact each university and talk to them directly or with a student advice centre.

    • Hi Hannah,

      first of all, the IELTS test and any other English test has nothing to do with the university you are applying to. It is simply a standardised test to assess your proficiency in the english language and to provide a means to measure whether you reach the necessary skill to attend university/college/school etc. What you are asking for heavily depends on the University or (more generally speaking) on the country that your desired university belongs to. Many european countries offer subsidization, student loans etc. for everyone. But e.g. UK-based universities require a hefty sum of money for enrolment alone – not taking into account any accomodation costs and living expenses. Look for scholarships and as Liz already told you –> contact a student advice centre. Do your best on the IELTS test, that will increase your chance to acquire a scholarship! But always bear in mind that really the test has nothing to do with the actual university.

  5. Syed Bazil hussain says:

    Hy Liz,
    I am bit taking trouble for answering the speaking part 3??

    • Prepare lots of ideas for topics so that you have plenty to say. Remember that the examiner doesn’t actually mark your ideas, just your English – the more English you give, the better. Give plenty of examples and just keep chatty. The speaking test is informal so chat a lot 🙂

  6. Good job Liz. keep it going please. Love you!

  7. Hi Liz! I subscribed to your lessons but I couldn`t confirm my email. I tried a lot of time but I failed.

    • Try setting up a different email address. Sometimes automatic emailing systems have problems with certain types of email addresses. Try a gmail or something like that.

    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
