I would like to ask you what is your opinion about a problem I faced today. I did a reading test and later I noticed that on a "heading-paragraph matching" task if I link a heading to a paragraph incorrectly, I exclude the used heading as an option. Then later when I reach to a paragraph which is the right choice for the already used heading I try to find the most suitable one from the remaining and it leads to another mistake.
Do you have any advice for this problematic situation?
Thanks.

Hi Mitko,

My advice is to 'keep an open mind' about the answers. In other words, you can never be completely sure that you've got the right answer, so it might be best to check the ones you've crossed out just in case.

Thank you for your answer Simon.
I wish you a happy new year!

Hi,

It's my pleasure to post my answers here on your blog. This exercise is really great indeed, thank you very much! TheIELTSSolution.com

Thank you.

The graph below show the proportion of the population aged 65 and over between 1940 and 2040 in three different countries ?

Hi Soma,

Are you asking for advice about that question?

Yes please ! Simon what kind of sentences shell I us to talk about predicted dates ???? For example in my second paragraph I wanted to say that it is clear that the precentages of the poulation for elderly people in all three countries are expected to see a significant increase by the year 2040. Japan predicted to see the highest rose ! Is that ok Simon ??

When I reread what I wrote I feel like the word * see * is not suitable to use I mean I am sure there is better word to use instead of * see * ?? BDW simon My IELS test is on next saturday I practiced a lot through your lessons they are very usful although I only found your website last weeek :( Honstly I still don't feel like am ready to take the exam but no choise I have to do it :( I hope I achieve what I am aiming for which is 7 Or 7.5 or 8 ! God Help Me :)

Hi Soma,

Your sentences with "see" are really good: "are expected to see a significant increase" is exactly what I would write! Just write "Japan IS predicted to see..."

You can also write "experience" instead of "see", or you can miss the word "see/experience" completely e.g. "The proportion of... in Japan is expected to rise to... in 2040."

Good luck on Saturday!

Hi Simon
Can I say Household __was____ _'the_____ highest' in the transport category instead of 'hightest'
