Hi Simon:

you Know I couldn't find the uncommon verb (sport-shop) used in the recording,.. you know when I tried to write down its transcript,... I come across a two-word verb pronounced like (spot shop)or (sport shop),... At the end, I've decided to use the first one!!... although I cannot find the meaning of each one so far, neither in my hardcopied dictionary nor over the internet,...
On the other hand, I think this recording corresponds to the parts#3 & #4 in the IELTS' listening test, especially the speaker(s)-in which- will be talking so quickly!!and this in turn makes it harder (for many candidates) to respond perfectly... In this regards, I'd like you to do me(and other students here) a favour!!

Would you write something about how to get the most out of the listening parts "3" and "4" of the IELTS????

Thank you beforehand!!

Hi dear Simon,

I'll have IELTS on April 11th,

for the speaking part, when I practice at home, I can not remember and use uncommon words but I try to speak fluently as much as I can...what do you think about this problem? if I try to speak fluently with error-free sentences(without that much high level vocabulary) can I get 6.5 or more in this part?


Hi ,
There is an application in the App store called " English Radio" is really helpful, it contains many channels and I found it useful to improve listening and speaking , also some of the reports have transcript .
I hope this can benefit all IELTS candidates.
