  1. http://Nicolas%20Raggi says

    Hello Liz!
    About this subject, there are also technical dictionaries. Those dictionaries explain technical words related to an activity or profession which sometimes can`t be found in the regular ones, or the meaning for the specific subject often differs from the general use.
    Your webpage is awesome! It helps me a lot.

    • http://Liz says

      Thank you! Absolutely! My Grandfather actually wrote dictionaries and one of them as a dictionary of medical language for foreigners. I’m shamed that I forgot it!!

    Hi Liz,
    Is it expected to hamper my band scope if I use a word or a phrase that is strictly not english. E.g., Ad nauseum or QED?

    • You have to explain it if you use it. Some expressions are actually used in English, for example “dejavu” which is a French word now used in the English language. But it is a foreign word, not used in English, make sure you explain it.

    Hi liz . in the topic of study I want to know what is the different between “My Subject” and “My Major” .. like i’m study architecture .. is it subject or major ?
    and thank you so much ^^

    • http://Liz says

      The word “major” is mainly used in degrees whilst the word subject can be used for degrees, school etc.

    Hello Everyone,

    I have found all this material very useful, however, I just presented the IELTS few weeks ago and I had this question about an historic event in my country. I have seen and there is no examples given for this answer, so I recommend you to keep it in mind.

    • http://Liz says

      Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚ An historic event could be anything – a war, a declaration, a new law, the day something opened or closed etc. Almost anything you can think of.

  15. http://Aamir says

    My name is Aamir. I have appeared in IELTS twice before and always get 7.5 band as an average score. Since my IELTS has expired I shall appear again on the 4th of coming march but I do not find any time to prepare for it.
    Do you think I could maintain my score with a daily practice of 1 hour?

    • http://Liz says

      IELTS speaking is an informal test so it would be unnatural to use such a word in speaking.
