  1. thanks Liz for these blog

  2. Hi Liz,

    I am really liking the material that you are sharing for ielts aspirants.
    What is your opinion on Barron’s IELTS book for preparation along with practise papers on this website?

    Thank you !

    • You MUST use the IELTS Cambridge test books because they are real IELTS tests published by IELTS. There are about 13 books and each book contains 4 tests. Book 13 is the most recent. Barron’s IELTS book is fine to use after you have completed all the IELTS test books.

  3. Hi please let me know if I am making wrong attempts especially loosing the track of Information shall I redo the exercise.

    • It is your choice how you use these lessons. If you want to listen twice to practise, it’s fine. But in the real IELTS test, you can listen only once.

  4. Hi Liz,

    I’m going to take my IELTS test tomorrow ( LRW ) . Could you please confirm me if I can write all the letters of a word in capitals for reading and listening .

  5. Thank you Liz! Your material is great and has helped me get through exam.

    Does any of the reader remember Dr.Owens and Joel passage discussing agriculture topic on July 28 General Training Test?
    Q21 – Q26

  6. Thank You so much Liz 🙂
    Your tips and tutorials are too helpful.
    I have one question from listening and reading. Do answers of all the question types are given in order?
    If no then what are those?


    • For listening, answers come in the order of the questions. For reading, it depends on the type of question – each one has different rules.

  10. Priya Khiwal says:

    Hi Liz, please advise if in listening section a word is spelled, then do we need to write the hynated word or normal one?
    E.g. “scathold” is spelled, then do we need to write s-c-a-t-h-o-l-d in answer sheet ??

  11. Abdelbasset says:

    1/ C
    2/ B-F
    I would like to thank you for the work you are doing. This is fantastic !
    eventhough I found your website at the last minute, i will definitely recommend it to my friends,
    today I had the speaking test, it was a bit difficult for me ^first time to hear about parenting skills* ???
    i will take the listening reading and writing by tomorrow <
    With Love

  12. Hi
    The practice tests that I got from idp are very tough, especially listening. Why is it so? Will actual test be so tough where it’s very difficult to follow the speaker(s) as they speak very fast?
    Some practice tests are way easier too. I’m a bit worried about that.

    • I suggest you get the IELTS Cambridge test books from 9 to 12 – they are real tests published by IELTS. You can judge the level of difficulty from those tests. My lessons are only for practising skills and are made by myself to provide free practice. So, check the real tests.

      I picked the same options too considering the fact that several literary materials were listed. Thank you Liz for providing this practice tests and answers.

  19. Thanks for all your efforts. much appreciated.

    However I have a question about this part ..now you mentioned “written work” and then gave couple of examples , dont you think its very confusing? Since all books are considered written work?

    Again thank you so much for your time 🙂 ♥

  29. HI

    I just would require a suggestion on remarking/revaluation. I had taken my exams on 2 dec. I am little worried on my score related to reading, hence would like to if its worth to apply for a reval will it be of any use.


    • Reading scores and listening scores are based on answers which are either right or wrong. The score is not based on examiner interpretation or examiner decisions as in speaking and writing. I have never heard of a score for reading or listening changing after a remark. However, nothing is impossible, so it’s your choice.
