  1. Hi Liz,

    Please advice if this book will be beneficial for candidates who want to improve in IELTS General writing from 6 to 7. I did IELTS twice and I am stuck at 6 despite getting 8 in the other areas. I really started to get confused and frustrated about what to study or do to increase this band.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Thanks,
    Abla

  2. Hey Liz,
    will this book be printable as I cannot concentrate well for a long time while I’m reading digital books?

  3. Hi Liz,

    I am not able to buy your ideas for essays book as my card payment is not getting accepted. I tried using 3 cards, buy still asking to use other card.. Any issue in payment site? Please advise asap as i am eagerly waiting to buy this book

    • If you have problems like that, try opening a paypal account and use that to buy the lessons. Or you could ask a friend to buy the lessons for you.

    • Hi Liz,

      I have created a new account now, as suggested, and have paid the amount. Will i get the ebook via email? Please advise

      • Once you have purchased it, you will get one email from Viddler with a link to the introduction video and then I will email you afterwards (within 1 to 2 hours) with the e-book pages. You should already have my email. Usually you get only one email, but due to problems with the system, I am emailing people personally.

  4. Wow!!! I can’t wait to get the idea e-book. Thanks Liz for your efforts to help people pass IELTS.

  5. Hello Liz,

    Excited to know that you are releasing the Essay ideas book on 6,7th May.I was waiting for the book.My last attempt scores were(L-7.5,R-6.5,W-7,S-7.5).My desired score is
    (L-8,8,7.5,7.5).I am solving mocks test but tend to score between 35-36 in L and R.Just need those extra 2-3 answers right.
    I am planning to take the test on 23rd May or 1st June.In the exam i tend to make mistakes in maps and mcq.Although I have gone through all your tips for maps and mcq, I find it confusing sometimes to solve the map questions .The mcq options are big sentences in the recent tests.

    Liz,Any special tips to solve these types of questions apart from practice.Also how much time would it take to prepare for writing from the ideas book.

    Regards,
    Parag

    • Both MCQ and maps are difficult – there is no easy way to tackle them. The key with maps is knowing the language and be familiar with maps. You could even try looking at various maps online and describing locations and directions to yourself. Any museum or gallery often has a guide – use them to practise. Also get used to the location of the numbers – start thinking what words you expect to come that would help you identify them. The more practice you do – the more preparation – the easier it will be in your test. You must get to know maps.
      For MCQ it is all about being able to spot keywords and also differences in the options. They are not easy questions to answer – even for native speakers. Go back through transcripts and check if there were keywords you spotted in the transcript that you didn’t pay attention to in the recording. the more you analyse listening transcripts, keywords, techniques etc, the easier it gets. Doing practice is not enough, you must analyse each and every answer. Write lists of vocabulary, paraphrases, keywords, traps etc. Start thinking more analytically.
      My e-book is about 150 pages in length and each page is full of exercises to learn ideas. You need to think how long it would take you to learn those ideas. It is a lot of ideas and a lot of vocabulary. Take a look at the sample chapter above and then imagine 150 pages like that 🙂

  6. Siddig awad says

    Hi, our respected teacher Liz. I have already purchased you videos about task 2 Essays. please notify me when your e.book (Ideas for IELTS Essays) is ready.

  7. Hannan Majeed says

    Hi Liz,
    Can you please tell me when will you publish your ideas book?

  8. Well done Liz , I’m waiting for it.

  9. Mahmudur Rahman says

    Dear Liz

    Could you please let me know when your book for “Ideas for IELTS Essay” will be available? I am eagerly waiting for this book. I have registered for IELTS exam which will be held on 23rd March, 2019. Is there any possibility to get this one before my exam date.

    I am looking forward for your feedback.

    Best Regards
    Mahmud

    • Sorry, there is a delay due to formatting. I hope to have it ready for the beginning of March. I will try my best anyway. I’ll let you know at the end of Feb when I hope to put it up for sale

  10. Hassan Ali says

    Hi there.
    Can you please update us regarding your ideas book availability? I am desperately waiting for your ebook. Unfortunately, I have failed 11 times and I believe, I might get 7 in writing with your ebook help.

    • It is not enough just to have ideas. You need to be able to present them clearly, logically, in a connected manner with good extending points. If you have taken the test 11 times and still not got 7, you will need to review your whole approach, not just build ideas. Did you get my Advanced Writing Task 2 lessons?

  11. please what exactly the time for posting your book for public?

    Thank you

    • There is no fixed date yet. The book is written, but each page needs formatting. It will take me time to do that because it’s a long book.

  12. Hi Liz good day, may I ask where can I order your e-book? How much is it and is it already available?

    Thank you very much and happy holidays 🙂

    • Not ready yet. I hope to know when it will be released by the end of this month. I’m hoping to release it in January, but it will depend on a number of factors I need to check.

      • Pauline Anne Tychico says

        Thank you so much for your reply. May I also ask how much should we pay for that?🙂

        God bless Liz. You are our angel💓😭

        • Not sure yet. It will probably be a bit expensive because it is a very long book – with great exercises for vocabulary as well as ideas. However, I will always offer discounts every couple of months for people who can’t afford it.

          • Thank you very much for replying.
            We utterly appreciate it. We do hope we can afford to have one😊🙏

            Sorry I think I replied twice to your message. Not sure if I was able to send it. Happy holidays and have a lovely day as well💓💗

            • The book price will not be low – it is a very large book full of very useful vocabulary and ideas exercises. However, from time to time, I will offer discounts so everyone can afford it.

  13. Hi Liz,

    I am eagerly waiting for e book with all 30 topics. Could you please let us know when will it ready?

    Thanks

  14. Thank you Liz. This is really great and looks completely useful especially vocabulary section. But could you please add an audio part to your e-book.
    In which Someone has gathered different audio file about different topics and that is really beneficial for people like me who have more time for listening rather than reading.

    • Thanks for the idea. However, my book will be very large. It will cover around 180 essay questions – it would be very hard for me to record all of them on my own.

  15. Very helpful in writing task 2 Preparation, Please share more.

  16. Wellington says

    Hie Liz

    When is this book ready. I really need it.

  17. Myssoun Mouhamad Mhrez says

    HI Liz
    you work is always perfect as usual.
    I hope and suggest to make a
    comprehensive IELTS book which includes all the 4 skills.

  18. hello mam
    pleasure to see this e-book on family
    mam can you make more e books on all topics like art money space etc

  19. As the title indicates, the ideas are very helpful! Thanks for sharing many good things to help others in taking IELTS Test.

  20. Khaing Thazin says

    Dear Liz,

    Thanks so much for organizing essay ideas in one book and I found that it is extremely useful and I am looking forward to it. When would it be about to publish?

    Best regards,
    Khaing

  21. NAVEEN SAGAR says

    Really your ideas are unique and helpful.
    Thanks

  22. its very helpful for everyone …thanks mam…

  23. Hello Liz, this is very nice. l think it will be useful to IELTS students. Keep it up and best of luck.

  24. Hi LIZ it’s really good and easy to understand I can’t find any error
    Thank you for this helpful book , i’m waiting for your next book

  25. Muhammad Ahmed says

    Dear Liz,

    I hope your health is good.

    Appreciate your efforts for this hardwork. My Suggession on behalf of all Ielts student is that you should make one complete PDF book of all contents written in your website , so that students can easily learn things from all stuff presented at one area ,rather they become confuse from the content written haphazardly(every where) on your website.

    Please take your time , i know it will take some time . Do some exercise daily to remain fit and healthy as we love your presence for our preparation. Ask some students to help you for the preparation of this complete E-book and sold it on lower prices , which can result huge profitability to you as the number ielts are too much who follows you.

    • About 85% of all my work on this website is accessed through the main pages which are shown on the RED BAR at the top of the website. All other pages are accessed in the right hand column or home page. It’s all readily accessible for online learning.
      I will continue to post a lesson or content once a week for free on this website.
      This e-book will not be sold at a low price, but I will be offer regular discounts so that people on a lower income can afford it – the same as I do with my Advanced Writing Task 2 lessons.

  26. Manivannan says

    Hi Liz,

    Happy to write you and I am one of the constant followers of your content from India.
    I am preparing for my ielts exam and when I practice writing task 1 letter writing I got a doubt.
    Based on the letter topics, I found that I am using lot of “I” in my letters such as I purchased, I am a, I used to. Anyway I can reduce this? If you didn’t make a content of this before, kindly do one.

    • There is no way to reduce it if the letter is about you. One thing you should do is look at how many sentences start with “I” because this means you aren’t varying your sentence structures. So, the issue isn’t about avoiding the word “I”, it’s about sentence structures.

  27. Rawia Obida says

    Hi Liz,
    Thank you so much, that is exactly what I am looking for. It’s organized so nice and contains many useful vocabulary. I really liked it and can’t wait to have a print.
    please keep going😊

  28. Muhammad Irtaza Ali says

    good initiative liz it will help students that how to create ideas about any topic and you should cover all the topics uploaded in your websites. it is my advice that you should make a proper video on writing task 2 (essay writing) too as there is not any video.

  29. Very nice mam please send more ideas for different topics

  30. Dear Liz,
    I apreciate ur effort towards our sucess. Please, how much is the 3 advaced videos.
    Thanks!

  31. Hi Liz,

    Even though there are a lot of sources online, this is by far the most complete structure of exercises I have encountered for myself. Exercises like matching word and phrases, words and nouns and especially finding the “one extra word” are the most beneficial for me.

    These exercises combined with topic ideas present a complete package for preparing writing task 2. I wish there was more material in our disposal right now since my exam is in couple of weeks. Nevertheless a lot of people will benefit highly from it in the future, undoubtedly.

    Thank you for all your help!
    Pranvera

  32. we paid a huge sum to institutes to learn but never get stuff like which you provide us.
    thanks to you for your support mam

    • Hi Liz…..
      You are so helpful and doing a great job by providing information that is quite useful for a English language learner. I am appreciating your services and a bit excited about your e book. Thanks is a very small word of your dedication and hard work on this site however i can only say thanks a lot to you. You work helped me in many ways.

      Here i would like to suggest you a bit about e book. I think so its your first experience and you do not much about a book writing. Here are my suggestions…..
      The title of IELTS Liz is a bit prominent it distract while reading the content.
      I think so (+) ,(-) arguments are not much effective add some other thing if possible.
      Other work is good.
      Best wishes for your e book.

      • Thanks for your feedback. This is an ideas book which is all about ideas for and against certain issues – surely those exercises help you remember the for and against ideas. The aim of this book is not to complete exercises, but to remember the ideas. Does that help? When you say the title of IELTS Liz – do you mean the watermark? I can make it both smaller and also more transparent if that would help??

  33. Extraordinary!I must say. Vocabulary excercise are awesome. N yes,they are great help for people like me.☺ waiting for its complete version!!

  34. VIOLA YEHIA DANIEL GHOBRIAL says

    It’s brilliant. Thank you for your endless support.

  35. Thank you for the job well done. The ideas are greate

  36. Ruchi H Shah says

    This is going to help many candidates to achieve their goal. Its really nice.

  37. Hi Liz,
    I have purchased all your advanced lessons for writing task 2 and found they are extremely helpful!! Thanks.
    I am here to ask just one question, for the one-sided approach in opinion essays, it is sometimes impossible for me to think of 3 ideas. I usually can just come with 2 ideas and give supporting points. So, will I lose any marks if I write two body paragraphs only instead of 3 body paragraphs? My exam is coming soon, your earliest response is appreciated!

    Thanks for your time.

    • It is completely fine. You have seen in my Advanced lessons that sometimes there are 3 body paragraphs and sometimes 2. You choose how many paragraphs depending on the number of ideas you have. If you have 3, then it’s about 65 words per paragraph. If you have only 2, it’s about 95 words per paragraph.

  38. Dear Liz,

    This is such a great idea and it will be absolutely beneficial for IELTS students and others.
    An example of how each vocab will be used is extremely useful too, as remembering the word itself does not help. In addition, the example, of one or two ideas of paragraphs for each topic would be great too.

    Best wishes,

    Reth

  39. Hi Liz,
    Thanks for book. I think in the CHILDLESS MARRIAGES,
    The words in the box should be spaced out. Like “burdendevoted” and “responsibilitesrevole, it might cause confusion.
    also I would like to ask this
    CHILDLESS COUPLES CAN SPEND MORE TIME DEVOTED TO EACH OTHER.
    I don’t understand why it is “devoted” and not devoting”
    Is it lie …. which is devoted to each other” and we can drop “which is” out
    thanks

    • Sorry – I’ve just noticed the problem with the word spacing. That must have happened when I converted it to PDF – I’ll have to check how it converts. The sentence “CHILDLESS COUPLES CAN SPEND MORE TIME DEVOTED TO EACH OTHER.” is correct. It is the same as saying “Couples can spent more time dedicated to each other without the presence of another person in the relationship”.

  40. Hi Liz,

    Congratulations on this wonderful work. It’s really helpful and I appreciate your blogs and all the help you give to the students. Good Luck for your future endeavors. 🙂

  41. Do thu hang says

    It is really great work. Tkiu so much for your ideas which are so well organized and easy to follow.

  42. Thank you Liz it is wonderful, very practical. good job.

  43. Hi, Liz..sharing is caring really.
    Thanks for sharing this,its quite educative and informative.
    I want to find out however if you would be including tips to help on Speaking in the book,because I consider that very important. Many students do have phobia when it comes to speaking .Sharing common errors or ways to overcome the phobia won’t be a bad idea

    Adedeji

    • This is an e-book for ideas for writing task 2 essays. The ideas can also be used in speaking part 3 which covers broader world issues. I plan to make Advanced lessons for Speaking at some point next year hopefully – I’ll post a notice when they are ready.

      • MD RUKAN UDDIN says

        I HAVE READ THE SAMPLE ESSAYS .TO SPEAK THE TRUTH, IT WAS A COMPLETE SOLUTION FOR TASK 2. I APPRECIATE YOUR WORKS AND CONTINUATION OF LENDING HELPING HANDS. WE ARE EAGERLY WAITING FOR THE COMPLETE BOOK.MAY GOD BLESS YOU.

  44. This will go a long way in helping candidates preparing for IELTS. We are looking forward for its production.

  45. Its really helpful. Its a masterpiece of work . Good work done. Keep it up.

  46. Aulona Beqo says

    Hello! As a non- native English teacher, I say I really appreciate the excerpt and your lessons, but as sometimes it is difficult to find texts related to specific topics, the inclusion. Of such texts would be indispensable.

  47. Hi Liz,

    It is a wonderful job.
    It would be great if you can add one essay to each chapter by showing how to use the ideas and vocabularies in the essay format.

    Thanks and have a great time.

  48. The excercise was very helpful and informative

  49. Pls, Liz,am interested on dat book, when be ready, all ur ilet lectures are so interested, likewise ur book will be perfect.

  50. From the excerpts provided on the, “family and vocabulary”. I’d just say I like your style/methods. Its a very good way to learn new words and phrases. Your full eBook is expected with great anticipation.
    Keep up the good work.

  51. I really appreciate ur lectures, the way u lectured, and your pronunciation.how u present ur ilet speaking, is very helpful, to my own understand. Thanks alot.

  52. Your all ideas are very helpful for the IELTS preparation. You are doing a great job . I just want to say thank you for the all updates

  53. It will be a very useful and great book for IELTS students))) Thanks for your great support)

  54. Good day Liz, am so much happy for your lectures and all ur ilet teaching really helping both ur listening, speaking, essay, in fact, all ur lectures is so interesting, thanks

  55. You should publish it in an amazon book store. Where lots of people buying there. Like me as well.

  56. Hello Ma’am,
    I have some honest feedback, please do not take it negatively.
    1. The ideas were fine, but they seemed to be very closely linked and repetative in nature, just like same thing presented or said in just a different way by lil tweaking it. Ideas were so closedly link that it seemed one main point and other two can be just supporting view. Sorry but expected higher level of ideas or some through points that can be used to write better topic sentences in essays, like the points that you have in all your 3 advanced lessons.. A level 9 band main topic idea. ( though i know we are not tested on ideas).
    2. Vocabulary wasn’t that great and exercise were confusing, though i got all most 98% of them correct. Exercises are fine for advanced and intermediate, but not for elementary level. Exercise could be curated in more better way then the present ones from IELTS exams point of view. More of sentence completion, vocab exercises, add one word etc.. will help. Vocabulary was of elementary level, it could be upgraded. Adding more collocations w.r.t varied subjects would be of much help to us.
    3. In Smaller families nowadays, the first point misses “to” word – Can move to city more easily.
    Honestly i had a bit higher expectation post learning from your paid 3 advanced lessons because they fully deserve to be made a paid subscription. Full justice to the price paid and I just love them!
    But if this e-book is going to be of paid value, you must consider it revamping a bit atleast.

    Yours Sincere follower,
    Pooja

    • Thanks for your feedback. My Advanced lessons are specifically aimed at technique. This book is not. The ideas are just a collection of usable ideas for essays. The level of your ideas is not marked in IELTS, only the relevancy. Some topics have very advanced level vocab – not all topics are like that. Not because of writing style, but because some topics such as Environment or Crime & Punishment have specific vocab.

      About the sentence “Can move city easily” this is correct. It is not about moving to a city from a town, village or the countryside, it is about “moving city” which means from one city to another city. This is the same as writing “move house” which means to move from one house to another house. We would say “Next week I will move house”. We can also say “I’m going to move city”.

      All said, I’m going to carefully go through all my chapters to up the level of the vocabulary and ideas. I’ve also decided to have a section at the end of the book that reviews vocabulary for each topic. That section will focus on the higher level vocabulary and check your spelling as well. I’m sure by the time this e-book is ready to be launched it will meet all my usual standards 🙂 As you know, my aim is always to provide the best 🙂

  57. Really stunning, can you please upload more chapters of the book, this really can help a lot .

  58. Tran Dieu Anh says

    I have purchased the three video clips (discussion essays, opinion essays and adv/disadvantage essays). They are excellent. Are you releasing the training clips on cause/solution essay and direct question essay so that i can buy them?

  59. Hi Liz,
    Congrats and I wish you all the best with publishing your new e-book.
    Generally, the overall chapter is coherent, good format, clear and straightforward. The chapter reflects the originality of your work and is well presented in a textbook style. Here are some thoughts at different angles which I would like to share with you and hopefully these could be helpful to improve quality of the book.

    In terms of format the chapter is well presented however, it still could be improved to achieve the consistency for the whole e-book or each chapter. For example, all the pages should be numbered to make it easy for the reader to follow. The header is quite close to the main text which makes it hard for me to catch the idea of each page; I also have to adjust my eyes sight looking for the information. I would also like to see all titles and subtitles are right aligned rather than center aligned. Line and paragraph spacing should be checked again to be consistent, for example it is single spaced in pages 6 but formatted differently in pages 7 and 8. In page 3, there are mistyping mistakes, these should be burden – [space] – devoted, and responsibilities revolve…; also needs to look at format of the vocabulary exercise in pages 6 and 7. However, these minor mistakes are in a acceptable level.

    Turning to the contents, I would like to suggest putting the question before the text in the way you presented in topic 1, page 1; or should be presented like the way for vocabulary questions but not for sentence completion questions.
    I assumed there are many chapters in your e-book, so the first two sentences under each topic should clearly introduce what the chapter is about and should be repeatable for every chapters. I would suggest to change to “Each of the sections below contains ideas and vocabularies….. for the topic of family”. I think it is not necessary to mention “the sections are based on…” as this is applied for other chapters as well. Also, “Do not memorise sentences…” can be put separately as an instruction at the beginning of the book, or italic/bold formatted as a repeatable important note for each chapter.
    In page 2, i think it is a good idea to use Causes and Effects as these are more commonly used than Reasons and Effects.
    I would also suggest to put questions in a consistent way for the whole book, for instance, in page 2 you said “match the words and phrases from the sentences with their definitions” and “match the verbs 1-5 with the nouns a) – e) to make common collocations” could be rewrite in a same style.
    Overall, the sampled chapter is very good material and I am very interested to see the whole e-book in a near future.
    All the best luck,
    Blessed you,
    Emma.

    • Thanks for your thoughtful comments. Here are some points to answer your suggestions:
      1. The information at the start of the chapter is only there because it’s a “stand alone” chapter which I have released. That particular information would normally be found in the instructions for using the book and the contents page. But I had to include the info in these pages today so people could learn directly and avoid errors.
      2. The page numbers won’t be added until all chapters have been written – they will be the last thing to be added before publication.
      3. Yes, the headings should be left aligned. That’s my error. All alter it in my e-book.
      4. I’ll go over line spacing more carefully.
      5. I’m going to have a video that goes with this e-book that explains how to use it – it will also explain the layout of exercises.
      Thanks again for being so thorough 🙂

  60. Fantastic, informative and unique in its style
    I am looking forward to purchase the book .

    Its really helpful..Thanks LIZ you are great.

  67. Hey Liz,

    I am following your lectures and I must say , all are very helpful for my IELTS preparation. These ideas made it so easy to write essay on any of the topic related to family. You are doing a commendable job. Thanks a lot.

  68. Prafull Kurale says

    Hey Liz, I have read your blog. And the information you give is always helpful to me. I am improving myself day by day only because of info you provide.
    Thanks for the same

  69. It is really so informative ..i think i ielts candidate should read these lesson…could you tell me when will whole ebook will be avialable ??

  70. Hi Liz

    I really like the way you have put the different topic ideas around family; This would definitely help the people like me who face difficulty in generating ideas. I really appreciate the vocabulary and usage of it as sometimes despite we know the word but still we face difficulty in using them
    I would also like to know how can we expand our ideas , by this I mean to say how to write expand our main idea. This may not be related to this e-book

    • Thanks for your feedback. Often when you expand your idea, it is about explaining it more fully. Just imagine that someone didn’t fully understand your meaning – then explain with an example or more detail. You don’t really need to have more ideas, just explain them more clearly than in only one sentence.

  71. Thanks for spending your valuable time to help the students. It’s Valuable e-book containing different sections of task 2 ideas. I’m struggling with writing part. Mam, could you suggest some tips and important resources like this e-book.

  72. Hello Liz,
    Thank you for sharing the topic and also for the suggestion. First of all I would like to congratulate you for this effort.
    As you are the expert in this area, there’s no need for any suggestion as it has written very well. I liked the way you stated the positive and negative both points, so that we can get an idea how to explain the topic more precisely in different ways however you can add few things at the end of the topic –
    1. The new vocabulary learnt in this topic.
    2. Question types related to the topic.
    Rest all is perfect.
    Really hoping to see more from your side.
    I wish you all the best for your future endeavour…👍

    • You can find question types and essay questions on this page for free: https://ieltsliz.com/100-ielts-essay-questions/. I’ll put a link to that page in the e-book. To learn the vocabulary for each topic it is best for you to write your own lists – specific words that you wish to learn. I’ll put a message at the start of the e-book about making notes as you go along.

  73. Hello Liz,
    Thank you for this attempt and this book will definitely be an added advantage. I would like to share a few thoughts.

    Most of those who are non-native English speakers tend to write or speak in the form of their own language. This result in multiple grammar mistakes and less formal approach. It will be helpful if this book addresses such instances.
    – Eg; Informal approach ‘ Something must be done about it”.
    Formal approach ‘Action is required to tackle this problem’
    – Examples could be provided for the topics which are frequently used.
    – Further to note, the same point / sentence could be written in band 6, 7, 8 levels, there by it will be helpful to understand how to improve the writing. Those who are good with ideas and essay structures but less likely to score in complex sentences could benefit from such information.

    Thank You and appreciate your commitment and great effort in this subject.
    Regards
    Rajitha

    • Thanks for your feedback. I think you are mistaking the aim of the e-book. This isn’t to improve your grammar or sentence structures or language. It is only ideas for topics. I am currently organising a Grammar List E-book for writing task 2 and I will put your ideas forward for that book, particularly changing informal to formal. Thanks

  87. Nisha Therasa says

    Hi Liz.. Congrats for the new step! I had a quick read through and here’s what i thought. You’ve listed out pros and cons as well as effects of different situations, but how about also adding in a section for balanced ideas too? Such as in, for example, the elderly people theme, a middle ground view where, the grandparents live close by and the family can drop in and check in on them. This way everyone gets to keep their freedom and at tge same time receive the family’s attention. The reason I suggest this is because I’ve seen many of my own students attempting a balanced opinion but seem lost for good ideas which are practical and practiced actually in reality. I feel including this too would make up for the student’s lack of reading and experience of the real world.
    All the best!

    • Thanks for your feedback. I like your idea and I know it would be very helpful. I’ll see what I can do – it’s not always possible to add that view – it depends on the topic. Let me see… Thanks 🙂
