  7. Hello Liz
    Your teachings have been of great help to me.I am presently preparing to take my test by the month end.Please how do I get my essays and reading practices assessed?

    • Unfortunately, I don’t offer any marking services. On this blog, all reading practice exercises have answers. If you want to practice full reading tests, you should get the IELTS Cambridge books 1 to 10 (number 10 is the most recent). They are books with real exam papers published by IELTS. For writing, you will need to find an IELTS teacher to help you with assessing your level.
      All the best
      Liz

  8. Dear Liz,
    What’s the difference between “In regard to” and “With regard to”? Aren’t these the same in grammar and meaning?

    Would be so kind of me by explaining it.

    With regards,
    Mohan Anbgo

  9. Hi Liz,
    Why in paragraph two after 24 you wrote hour, and why not hours?

    • Hi,

      Because it is used as an adjective – a 24 hour period – “period” is the noun not “hour”. If the word “hour” is used as a noun then it should be plural – he travelled for 24 hours.
      Regards
      Liz
