Hi Simon,

I can't get the meaning of the following sentence. It's an excerpt from your previous reading practice. Could you please explain it to me?

"Putting trust in highly educated technocrats, it is naturally less interested in public debate."

Thank you!

Hi Simon,
listening to this recording, I realized that there is a reverberation effect while the speakers are talking.
Is it a technique that you use to do the listening more challenging or it just came across?

Hello Simon,
I have a confusion regarding one of the ielts questions that came up in recent exam,
We can learn a lot more from teachers than other sources(internet) Do you agree or diagree?
So my question is if we agree with the statement
Then we only need to describe the role of teachers in the whole essay? Or we have to write a second paragraph regarding other sources ? Kindly give the stratedy of how to describe this question. Im looking forward to yyour answer.

there're 2 words i missed: 1. check out "of", i didn't notice that "of" ; 2. and the brain "really" is telling us...i knew i missed out sthg but unsure what

James,

I'll try to explain:

"It" refers to the "big data" approach to politics. The text is saying that this approach means listening to suggestions based on statistics rather than public opinion.

...

David,

For my exercises, I find bits of audio on the Internet, and the quality isn't always perfect. The quality should be much better in the real IELTS test.

...

Zara,

If you state a stong opinion in the introduction, don't write a balanced discussion in the main body of your essay. What you could do in your second paragraph is write about why other sources are NOT as good as teachers.

Thank you Simon for your kind reply. I really appreciate it.

Best wishes!

Hi sir,
I am facing quite trouble in Listening. During note completion, i am unable to write a word that is actually single word (But i am writing in two words – Example: I wrote “mini Bus” instead of “minibus”). So, i need a bit help or suggestions to overcome this problem. Then, i have another problem in writing numbers. Can we write the numerals in terms of words (Is that wrong or write)?
Thanks in advance.

The fact is, multitasking is a myth. Our brains cannot do it. It is simply that become less efficient and more distracted and your error rate goes up 50%, and it takes you twice as long to do the same task.
Listen what Tim Jenkins has to say?
He is co-fact of point B, a leading business consulting firm
There is a fallacy out there that folks on multitasks are more effective. There are times when it's just important to focus on one thing. I think we also need to give people permission to check out of the communication network temporary to get things done. Because when you are always online you always distracted and the brain really is telling us that very unproductive mode to be in. So the always online organization is actually the always unproductive organization.
