  4. Hello Liz,
    Thank You for your lessons, all of them are useful for me!
    kindly check the last soundtrack, I thick some number is missed. you mentioned No.3 then No.5.

    That is all.

  5. Hi Liz,
    I am used to cursive handwriting, and i am afraid of the markings on cursive handwriting. What shall i do for this? And can we write the listening and reading answers ALL in CAPS ?
    Thanks in advance !

  6. Hi Liz,
    I’m sorry, but I don’t like the sound of who talked in listening!

  7. Hi Liz,

    How should we say 1,750,000? One and three quarter million or one and three quarters million?

    Hi Liz,

    thanks a lot for all the useful information you have in your blog! I’d like to ask if it would be a mistake in IELTS listening test to write a number 12000 (meaning twelve thousand) instead of 12,000 (with a comma)?

    • It is still correct without the comma. However, I always recommend using the comma because it makes it easier to read and less chances to mistakes with marking.

      • hi Liz i am trying to contact you because someone is using your materials for business without your permission i guess. please keep in touch

  9. Hi Liz!
    To get a high score on writing, how important is memorasing essays?
    Thank you!

  10. Dear Liz,
    If I found the question about currency (ex: $45) and the sign of currency ($) is in the question, should I write it again in my answer or only its number (45)?

    Thanks before 🙂

    • If the symbol is already given, you don’t put it in your answer.

      • rayhana ferdousi says:

        hi Liz. if the answer key written is ($25/twenty five dollars(refoundable) instead of that if I write 25 DOLLARS then what happen? is my answer correct or wrong.and what they mean” refundable”.would you please explain that.
        thanks in advance

  11. Hi Liz,
    I am from India, I need your help to get some kind of mock test papers with answers to practice, i am ready to purchase, especially i am looking for Listening and Reading sections of General Module
    waiting for your reply
    thanks in advance

  12. I meant, if you could guide me to the page on your website where I can find separate exercises/lessons for section 1, 2, 3 & 4?

    Thanks !

    • I haven’t divided the exercises per section, only by question type. To practise all sections, you should get the practice test books: IELTS Cmabridge books 1 to 10.
      All the best

  13. Hello Liz

    Could you help me with what Deepak Khatri mentioned in point 2 of his comment above?

    Many Thanks, Be Blessed

    • He means that you should practice section 1 many times and then practice section 2 many times. Each section you should practice separately. You should purchase practice test books to do this either online or at your local shops.

  18. Hi Liz
    Actually I don’t have the right word to thank you for your best effort that you introduced at your presentation You have the right skill but it requires an excellent student to understand and follow such a wonderful teacher like you
    Really I spent much time listening watching and writing down every single word you said that will be a very important tool for me while teaching my students in Egypt
    Finally I enjoyed your presentation so much
    Again thanks a lot
