    By this time tomorrow, I should be done with my Listening, Reading and Writing IELTS exams, as the Speaking was done yesterday.
    Liz, do you know I still can’t get above 32 in listening during practice!
    Have tried all the tricks, and now tomorrow is as close as next second.
    However, I must thank you for the free lesson. You are the best.

    • Listening is all about focusing on keywords in questions which will either be given directly in the recording or paraphrased. Those keywords will help you keep your place, but you always have to keep one eye on the next one or two questions so you are ready to move forward. Also remember not to get distracted by extra information. Your aim is not to understand everything, but to find answers – focus on that. Also pay attention to the grammar in the questions because it can help you decide your answers. Think about jotting down very short notes (not full words, just occasional letters) for any answers you might have missed. You can write and circle words all over your question paper. But you also have to accept that each person has a skill that is not their strongest. Anyway, I wish you lots of luck tomorrow!! 🙂 See this page:

    Hi Liz,

    Was this synonyms exercise a part of the test or it was something you created deliberately? The reason why I ask you this is because I’ve never seen a synonym exercise in the IELTS test before. (I’m studying for the General one).

    Thank you for all your hard work and dedication you put into these lessons for us!

    All the best!
