Comments to IELTS Liz 2018

Hi guys,

Please read this full page, particularly the thank you message for my supportive students at the bottom of the post.

As you know, I post regular lessons to help you prepare for your IELTS test. It is something I enjoy and I try to do this once or twice a week. My lessons are usually well designed and aimed to develop awareness of specific skills or to provide vital test information. These regular lessons are all free. I have also written over 300 pages of tips etc which are all free for you and are accessible through the red bar at the top of the website. You should all read those pages before asking questions.

Recently I have been receiving some angry responses from students who demand I answer their questions.

Let me make things clear: I do NOT offer a free answer/question service.  

  • So far, I have responded to over 20,000 comments. I cannot respond to ALL comments.
  • I currently have around 9,000 comments waiting in moderation (unpublished). I can’t answer them all – most will be deleted.
  • Ask a question, but realise you might not get a reply.
  • Do NOT demand free individual support.
  • I also do NOT offer a free marking service for writing.
  • Check the answers I have already given to other students – most questions have been answered before.

Holiday: For health reasons, I will be taking an extended break from this website in Feb, Mar and Apr. I will post a notice when I start my hols. It means I won’t be answering questions or posting lessons but I will keep certain pages open for up-dates.

I hope you all appreciate the work I do and the support I offer students. My website contains more replies to comments than any other IELTS website in existence. Let me give you four idioms relating to this issue:

  1. Give an inch and they take a mile.
    1. This means if you give one thing to someone, they demand more and more. Let’s avoid this.
  2. Respect is a two way street.
    1. This means you respect me and I will respect you.
  3. Pick someone’s brains.
    1. This means to get information or ideas from someone. I know you would all like to pick my brains, but I am only one person – take it easy on me 🙂
  4. Great minds think alike.
    1. This is used when people have similar ideas to each other. I hope, from this point onwards, we will all have similar understanding 🙂

The majority of students on my site are polite, kind and supportive – to you, I wish to say thank you. It is your support and encouragement that helps me continue 🙂

USEFUL LINKS for IELTS

Read this carefully:

  1. All main pages for IELTS (which contain 300 pages of free materials, tips etc) are accessed through the RED BAR at the top of the website. You MUST visit those main pages for the tips and lessons: Click on the Red Bar
  2. There are excellent, vital pages linked in the right hand side column of each page. Read them.
  3. Also read the comments boxes which contain thousands of extra tips and pieces of advice. Most questions have already be asked and answered before.
  4. For basic test information (using pens, pencils, handwriting, answer sheets etc), see the Test Information page.
  5. Again, let me repeat – there are over 300 pages of tips, model answers and lessons – all free. Use them to find your answers and use them to learn IELTS.

I wish you all good luck with your tests 🙂

All the best

Liz

  1. Hi Liz,

    I have subscribed to one of your advanced writing lessons ( opinion essay). Currently, I’m trying to practise to use the tips that were given by you in this video and I’m struggling with the balanced approach openings. If I include some reasons why I agree with something in the first paragraph and reasons why I disagree with it in the other body paragraph, can I start my second paragraph with an opener ‘on the other hand’? I know I need to make sure I don’t analyse advantages and disadvantages in this tyle of essay but I feel like I am not certain which sentence openers I can use for a body paragraph that presents reasons for I disagree with the opinion stated in the question.You, in the video, used ‚another point to consider’ but I feel like this one only makes sense if I support the opiniom.Thank

    • This is not about reasons why you agree and reasons why you disagree. It is about presenting a specific view point. Your own view. Do not confuse balanced approach with sitting on the fence and agree with both sides. It is about having your own view which is more moderate.
      For example:

      Question: Some people think city planners should build houses and not parks.

      Balanced View: This does not mean you think houses are good and also parks are good. It is about quantifying your view. “I believe cities where overcrowding is a problem housing should take priority, but in cities that are newly expanding, parks are more important.”

      Now we have quantified the view. It does not mean you agree with both sides. It means there are circumstances beyond the question that need to be taken into consideration. Do you want to try and post an essay question with a balanced view and I’ll comment back?

      • Hi Liz,

        Thanks for your reply. The essay question is: Due to the development and rapid expansions of supermarketu in some countries, many small, local business are unable to compete. Some people think that closure of business bring about to death of local community.

        Thank you

      • My balanced view is:

        In my opinion, local business are crucial part of local community culture; however they do not offer flexible services that chain shops do.

        • Your opinion hasn’t actually tackled the topic. Do you think the closure of local business causes the death of the local community? Yes or no? You need to answer this. You can’t just write about the pros and cons of local shops and large chains. Make your opinions be a direct answer. The essay question does not say “Which do you think are better?”. It is essential that you write more directly if you want a high score. Try the answer again.

          • Is this any better? I feel like it’s a bit too simple, but I’m struggling to think of anything else🙁

            In my opinion, closing down stores owned locally may seriously affect life of the local residents as not only the shops are the crucial part of their community culture but also history of the local area.

            Many thanks

            • Now you have changed your position completely rather than adapting the ideas you had to fit the question – that was the aim of asking you to tackle it again. It isn’t about just altering your ideas. It is about how you link them to the essay question. That often means being careful with your language. You need to include the keywords in your thesis and in each body paragraph.

              Your new thesis is weak due to the ideas – local history and the closure of shops is a very weak connection as it is based very far in the future, which is not really relevant. And you have not mentioned large chains at all. You can’t ignore part of the essay question. However, that wouldn’t be a bit problem as long as your body paragraphs connected the points. That is actually one reason why you always read the essay question before each paragraph to ensure you are phrasing your ideas correctly to fit the issues. Furthermore, you can see that taking a one sided view of this topic isn’t easy because of the limited ideas you can use. So, I would certainly stick with a balanced approach.

              BUT a balanced approach is all about how you present the ideas, as I explained in the Opinion Essay Video Lesson. It is not just the ideas, but how you write them and connect them. Also how you quantify them. X is good up to this point, then Y becomes a problem.

              Going back to your old ideas, you should have written them as: “In my opinion, although communities can benefit from large chains to some extent, the closure of many local shops will have a detrimental effect on the local economy and culture.” Note the word “many” – I an quantifying which is what I talked about in my Opinion Essay Lesson. I also clearly show my position – large chains are only beneficial up to a certain point, not beyond that point. As soon as MANY local shops close, they are detrimental. Also, in this thesis I present 3 main points. Always make sure how many main points you are actually presenting. The point about large chains “offering more products and choice” is detail to be presented in the body paragraphs. It is not wrong to put it in the thesis, but it is not necessary.

              Above I have used your ideas and related them to the health of the local economy which is what this topic is all about. I am not talking about pros and cons. From this lesson, I want you to learn that having the ideas is not enough – you need to think about how to present them so they connect to the issues in hand. Underline the keywords in the essay question and make sure your essay tackles them directly.

              Does this help or do you want to try one more? If so, please put the essay question and thesis in one post or I can’t find the threads easily. If I’ve repeated myself a bit, it’s because it’s 5am and I need to get back to bed 🙂

              • Hi Liz,
                Thank you so much for all your support and explanation.

                The question I’m work on at the moment is:
                With an increasing number of people wasting fast food, which is eaten too regularly and can cause health issues, some people think that the only solution is to ban it completely.

                My view after paraphrasing the question:
                In my opiniin, although it has been believed that eating fast food has a negative effect on our health, people need to realise the importance of healthy and balanced diet themselves rather than fixing new food regulations.

                Thank you

                Monika

                • Can you check the essay question. Are you sure it is about “people wasting fast food”? When you write your thesis, try writing the background as well so that you can see what language or points not to repeat. That means two sentences – paraphrase the background and the thesis. It’s better practice.
                  Again, be more direct. Do you agree that banning fast food will help solve this problem? Will banning fast food reduce the amount of fast food eaten? Is this a possible solution? What do you think? Is it the best solution? Again, this is about solutions and you need to express your opinion about that solution or other solutions. Watch your language and how you present your view. Try it one more time. Keep your view if you want, but make your opinion match the issue.

                • Hi Liz,
                  I’m really sorry about the mistake in the question- typing on the phone may not be the best idea😕

                  Anyway, the question is: with an increasing number of people eating fast food, which is eating too regularly and can cause health issues, some people think that the only solution is to ban it completely.
                  My background and thesis:
                  An increasing proportion of fast food consumers eat it too often, which can lead to serious health problems. It is considered that the only way to solve this issue is to totally forbid this type of food. In my opinion, while I agree that banning fast food from the market may be a feasible way to reduce the amount of fast food eaten by people, I truly believe that it is not the only and the most effective solution to this problem.

                  I feel like I know exactly what to do when I watch your lessons, but whenI get to write it myself I feel so confused. 😩

                  Thank you so much for your help!

                • So much better – well done 🙂 At this point, you could choose to put your other solution or solutions into your introduction or not. It’s a choice of preference, nothing more. Don’t forget that the most body paragraphs you can have are three, so you could have one body paragraph for the banning fast food solution and then either one or two body paragraphs more for either one or two solutions. You see, you can do it. You just need to be careful and thoughtful before writing. Always spend time thinking of what the issues really are – make a note of them using the keywords. Do that before brainstorming. Too many people start brainstorming and fail to spend think analysing the question. Anyway, well done – that would be a great essay 🙂

  32. Hello
    I hope that you will take a break and return to your normal state of health and strength . I was wondering if it would be possible for you to publish comments in one section of your website called RECENT EXAM QUESTIONS due to the fact that this section is quite helpful. If you let them publish on a daily basis, it would give us a lending hand to prepare for the test better. Thank you for making a special effort for to teach IELTS candidates how to handle this wild exam.

    • Sure. I will keep that page open and also the “Post Results” page as well. My website will still be running but I won’t post lessons and I won’t answer questions.

  33. hi liz,
    I just finished my IELTS exam yesterday and I believe i did good and that is all because of u, I seriously dont know how to thank you, you save many peoples lives and will always pray for ur health

    You are a good teacher and your comments are always helpful for me. I hope that they are helpful for other students as well.

    I wish that you recover from your health conditions and get well soon.

    Many Thanks,
    Monika

  36. Hi Liz! I hope you’ll recover from whatever health concerns you’re having. Our writing task 2 question last Jan 20 in the Philippines was about online business transactions. “Research shows that business meetings and training are increasingly taking place online. Do the advantages of these outweigh the disadvantages?” I’m not so sure about the exact verbatim.

  37. Sharanpreet says

  38. oh dear I really appreciate your effort and since I have known about your health problem , always I keep pray for you to enjoy healthy life with your family and friends

    • Speaking topics for GT? Do you think there is a difference speaking test for GT? There is only one speaking test for all students. ALL topics for speaking in this website are for both GT and academic students because there is only ONE speaking test and also ONE listening test. Only reading and writing are different.

  41. Abdulmajeed says

    Dear liz,
    I would like to render my thanks to you.
    I really appreciate your work.
    My best regards

  42. Thank you so much Liz for everything. Your website is a true measure of your generosity. May you find peace and joy with your upcoming holidays and i am wishing you good health..

  43. Dear Liz
    I’m a teacher who has recently come to IELTS because of a specific request from a new student (I generally just do Literature 😉 ). I cannot express adequately how much your site has informed and helped me get to grips with what IELTS is, and the best ways to approach it. I have endless gratitude for your hard work, for your clear website, and for your regular updates and ideas. You also amaze and humble me with your patience in answering queries. Sorry to hear that you’ve received less-than-polite messages: so unfair and unwarranted. While I’ll miss the daily emails, I fully empathise with, and support, you in your extended break. All teachers suffer burn-out. Go and restore, reinvigorate and reassess. You deserve it. Much luck x

  44. Nisha Therasa says

    Hi Liz.. we’ll miss you ..take care!

  45. Hi Liz,

    Thank you very much for everything you did and you continue doing for us Please enjoy your holiday we will happy if you are happy.

    Suleiman

  46. Dear Liz, Since you’re taking a break for health reasons, I think you should shut down the sight completely for the period you’re away. Health is wealth and there’s no need for anyone disturbing your rest period. We will make do with the red bar where the lessons are contained. Thank you. Remain blessed.

    • Thanks but I will keep the Recent Questions Page open – it’s really useful for students to share the topics and it doesn’t exhaust me to run that page. Even three months will not be enough for me to regain my health – it will take at least one year or more. But three months rest will help 🙂

  47. Hang Nguyen says

    Liz, thank you so much for free useful lessons, tips and your kindness. Hope you’ll have a great holiday.

  48. Hi Liz
    Firstly,I would like to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your job is really excellent and shed light on my road to IELTS. Your advice,guidance and your valuable lessons helped me get the score I need.They are exceptional and incredible.I couldn’t thank you more.I wish you are in good health and happiness.

  49. Dear Elizabeth,

    I once heard: for every negative remark, six compliments are necessary to embellish the emotional effects. I always thought that this is a real shame and lived my life trying to gain the most from the positve for my own sake. I wish you health, prosperity and success and moreover, hope you will continue your work for those who appreciate it.

    Thank you, Yoram

  50. Moyosore Idowu says

  66. Hi Madam,

    I had one doubt. If I missed (s) in plural word, I miss full 1 mark.
    Example: chocolate instead of chocolates
    Artist instead of artist

  72. Seifollah Jalili says

    Hello Liz;
    First of all, I would like to thank you for great effort to transfer your experiences to the non-speaker English people. I am a teacher, although not an English one, and learned from you a lot. You are a wonderful teacher, your patient, your clear and prompt response to many questions are characteristics which no one can have them except who is in love with his/her job. When I read or listen to your materials I feel you are a great person, who the human kind needs. So, please please do not bother with stupid people. Unfortunately, in this world, there are many stupid people who you can not find any word to describe them. As a teacher who believes transferring our knowledge to others request you remain steadfast in your job and keep continuing. Great people should not bother by stupid people. We all need you and your valuable job.

    All the best
    Seif

    It was little complicated 😑
    Writing task 2 was some people say that government should spend money in their own nation for unemployed and homeless people instead of on international aid . To what extent do you agree or disagree?
    Reading was fine
    Passage 1- about plastic clay aerosol
    Passage 2- donot remembr
    3rd- related to future i guess

    Listening section 1- birthday celbration and hotels
    Section 2- donot remember
    Section 3- 😑
    Section 4 – chemicals

  84. THank you Liz for helping us a lot , this is highly appropriated and we know that all of this is free and from your generosity, we are taking lot of your own time and you didn’t ever complain against that . By the name of my colleagues you have my apologies . Really I feel a shame after all you have done for us .

  85. Hi Liz,
    I gave my ielts test today and in writing task 2 , there were 2 statements in the question . I was disagree with the 1 st nd agree with 2 nd one but I wrote disagree in my introduction paragraph.
    Is it wrong ?? and if yes how much it will affect my score ??
    Essay topic – some people think that it is wrong to make school students do homework daily and others claim that children of all ages needs to do extra study to succeed in school.

  86. I agree with Masood
    In my culture we have a similar saying …. the more the ripe and delicious fruit is, the more the hitting is….

  87. Thank you Liz for everything
    BTW your voice was guiding me through the exam

  88. I wish to sit for the IELTS Examination. But while I’m doing past papers I feel very poor in English. How to improve my knowledge.I want to improve listening, speaking more. What shall I do for that. Please help me to score 7.5

  89. You are doing brilliant Job Liz. Don’t bother about stupid angry comments and demands from idiots. Good Luck

  90. JAFAR YASIN SHAIKH says

    Each finger is different. That’s the way not all readers are same. I personally follow this (my) idiom and keep myself going. Your efforts are truly fantastic and no one is available with same sort of knowledge and courage here. I wish good luck. Health is wealth and I am sure you gonna follow it for other upcoming aspirants in future. Best luck! Words are not enough to say thank you, specifically teacher like you!

  91. Hi liz,
    I had given IELTS exam recently on 6th jan. This was my 2nd attempt .
    In my 1st attempt I got 6 band and now again I got 6.5 band overall.
    please help me to get 8 7 7 7 in my 3rd attempt.

  96. Masood Zamani says

    Dear Liz,
    This is to thank you very much on all your sincere efforts on variety tips for the students taking IELTS tests.
    You are well assured that all your supports have not only assisted many students from all around the world in doing best in their tests but also contributed to the upgrading of the English language as the latest communication technics have been well elaborated by you which in return have boosted the students’ style of interacting with their environment quite outstandingly.
    You are absolutely right about the idiom “give an inch and they take a mile..
    In Persian culture there’s a more or less similar saying ” the tree with a lot of fruits will suffer a lot as the people beat it with wooden stick to pick the fruit more and more ” which is painful for the tree but the tree will keep bearing fruit as it is destined to feed the mobs.
    Scholars suffer a lot to enlighten and enrich us resembling a burning candle to get us out of darkness.
    Liz you are a great person, though I have been an IELTS teacher in Iran since 15years ago , but believe me your highly technical and useful teachings have been considerably helpful to me and my students.
    I sometimes think, how Liz can answer so many students’ questions so patiently and regulary.
    Once again appreciate you a million and wish to be your student forever.
    Sincerely,
    Masood Zamani,

    • A great idiom! I always feel that English is not a very expressive language – it’s a bit “flat” (without poetic expression). Your idiom of the fruit tree will stay with me forever – marvellous 🙂

      • Masood Zamani says

        Liz ,
        You are great,
        In Persian poetry,
        It is believed , the abundance of fruit in a highly rich fruit bearing tree makes the tree humbler and more patient.
        Your patience and humbleness impresses us quite a lot.
        Keep well
        Masood

  97. Thank you so much Liz for your efforts . To me, its the best IELTS teaching website. I wish you ll get back soon. You ll be very much missed.

    Kind regards
    Sana

  100. Hi Liz ,
    Your website is so great. I am following it and the comments from 2 months which help me in my today’s exam and it went great

    In writing
    Task 1 i don’t remember exact words but some thing like this
    Write a letter to friend that you are coming for holiday ( foreign country )
    Tell him some places and the reason
    Take some advice for accommodation
    And some activity you will do with him

    Task 2
    Some People become famous at young age
    Is it good thing or bad thing ?

    Task 2 fustrated me i think we use ‘thing’ word for an object anyways and question is so small I give introduction then I give 2 paragraph in one I describe the benefit to become famous and in other I wrote negative
    And I give my personal view point in summary
    I just want to ask if my format is correct or not ?
    Thanks alots
