  1. Hi Liz,

    Got 4/4!

    Great learning with you!
    When u take lessons it feels that you are right in front of me.
    Thank you so much for your support.
    Really grateful.

    Warm personal regards

    • I’m really pleased. It’s important to gain confidence in IELTS as well as understanding. MY lessons will certainly help, but don’t forget to do full practice tests at home from the IELTS Cambridge test books 1-13.

  2. got 4/4

  3. Thanks Liz. It’s interesting and informative

  4. 4/4
    4 mins
    Too much time

  5. no 2=enough quality.. is it correct answer??

    • Do you mean question 1? That would be marked wrong. The word “enough” is given in the sentence. Your task is to provide the missing words (this means the word that are not given).

    Will the questions in original IELTS exam be asked in the same level of difficulty like above Questions ?

    • For the academic reading test, it will be the same difficulty or possibly more difficult. Get a copy of one of the Cambridge IELTS books from 1 to 10. They are sets of test papers published by IELTS. You can use them for more practice because they are real tests.
      All the best
