      • Hi Liz

        My name is sofia, if im a student and i dont work, and the examiner asked me about my job, what should i say? Thank you

        • The topic of work is also the topic of study. The examiner will first ask: Do you work or do you study?”. Here are your possible answers:

          I work.
          I study.
          I don’t work or study at the moment ….

  22. Hi mam. I want to thank you for providing such out of the box tips for ielts. I want to improve my score in reading section(5.5) to (7) in my upcoming exam.

Also, how can i improve my vocab to understand text in reading passage easily?
