Hi simon,

I got my result. 6.5 (L6.5,R7.5,W6,S6.5)
Though it’s my first attempt and I was able to practice hardly an hour per day beside job life, I am not at all satisfied with my writing score.

For my IELTS preparation, I only read this blog and completed Cambridge 1-7. I am really grateful to my only mentor IELTS-SIMON.COM.
I already realized what’s wrong with my writing, I practiced myself. I tried to write lot of articles on different topic. But nobody was there to review/correct my mistakes!

Thanks a lot for your lesson.

oh the 1st sentences in my comment does not have the comma.
the subject 'school' is a unidentified subject. :)

Hi, Simon. It is my first comment on your website after reviewing some essays. Could you please correct

my sentences through the email? Thanks a lot.

1. I wanna talk about my primary school in my hometown named Zhoushan, which is near Shanghai, about

four-hour bus trip.
2. The atmosphere at this school was very harmonious. You could have a lot of fun when sitting the

class.
3. It was one of the most important things I loved in my childhood at that school because it had my

heart opened to others. Well, you know. I was so introverted before attending Zhoushan Primary School.

But it changed me a lot when I made lots of friends there.
4. Sometimes I played cricket with my friend, James. He was so professional in that sports area and the

team would always win if he was in.
5. Besides, the math teacher and other staff at that school were so polite and generous to me.
6. Lectures were also very brilliant because they taught me tough subjects in the easier ways.

1. I am going to share my experience at primary school named... (discuss never followed by about)
2. The school atmosphere was very reliable.
3. One of the most important things that I love about my days in that school was...
4. Sometimes I played cricket with my friends..
5. Teachers and other staff were so polite and generous to us that...
6. The teachers were very intelligent and they taught me how to learn...

1.Iam going describe about my school Sir.C.R.R public school 2.The envirnoment of that school is pleasant and reliable 3.I love my school because... 4.Teacher and other staff are very friendly and generous to us 5.The lessons that was thought by teachers were excellent.

FROM SIMON:

Here are the problems:

1. We don't say "discuss about", and we wouldn't use "namely" in this way.

2. It sounds strange to say that an atmosphere is "reliable".

3. Several small grammar problems e.g. we need to put this sentence into the past.

4. "Some times" should be one word. "I was played" is wrong - it should not be in the passive.

5. We don't say "so much polite".

6. Wrong use of "as well as".

FROM SIMON:

Here are my suggested sentences:

1. I'm going to talk about my primary school, which was called...

2. There was a really friendly atmosphere at my school.

3. One of the main reasons why I loved my time at the school was...

4. Sometimes I played cricket with my friends.

5. The teachers and other staff were so polite and generous.

6. The teachers were also very intelligent, and they taught me how to learn.

Simon,
I believe it is 'taught' in the last sentence (6).

Well noticed Ravikiran! I'll change it.

Hi Simon, I like very much your IELTS teaching and instruction system. Here I would like to give a tips to the IELTS students to develop their speaking fluency It’s really very important to speak continually to develop English speaking fluency and listening power. But in our family and office surrounding we do not get any partner to speak in English. We can get more benefit if we can stay in touch with foreign people. But how can we get foreign people to speak? This problem is solved by speaking24.com. Thousands of foreign people are waiting there to speak and practice their English language. Additionally we need Skype with internet connection. IELTS Students can watch the below short video from YouTube first and from here they can get the process how to connect with these people by the help of speaking24 and Skype.

Great website speaking24.com.
Will definitely use that to improve my speaking.
