Hi Simon,

I just got my IELTS result;


I am over the moon now that I have achieved the band I wanted. Phew.

To those beginners, follow Simon advices and read all the sample essays and follow the techniques.

To those who can't achieve 7, try correct your grammars/tenses/subject verb agreement, this is really the part that brought down my writing band. it easily unaware to non-native speakers but once you get your essay corrected at least once, you ll see how horrible (grammar) is your essay.

To Simon, I am blessed to come across your website and perfect my writing techniques, all the chunks of collocations and all. Perfect and smart technique!

God bless you. I am certainly recommend your website to all sitting for IELTS. (Btw, getting UK visa is an uphill task now :")

Thanks a lot!

Swimming is a great workout because you need to move your whole body against the resistance of the water.
Swimming is a good all-round activity because it:

keeps your heart rate up but takes some of the impact stress off your body

builds endurance, muscle strength and cardiovascular fitness

helps maintain a healthy weight, healthy heart and lungs

tones muscles and builds strength

provides an all-over body workout, as nearly all of your muscles are used during swimming.

Swimming has many other benefits including:

being a relaxing and peaceful form of exercise

alleviating stress

improving coordination, balance and posture

improving flexibility

providing good low-impact therapy for some injuries and conditions

providing a pleasant way to cool down on a hot day

being available in many places – you can swim in swimming pools,
beaches, lakes, dams and rivers.

Make sure that the environment you choose to swim in is safe.

Sorry , I searched online and I personally agree with above benefits :)

Hi Simon

When the question says describe an activity, do we talk about

(i) just the benefits


(ii) details of the activity and what it comprises, in addition to the benefits?


Great suggestions guys. I'll finish the video lesson over the weekend, and try to use some of your ideas!


Congratulations Adrian!



It depends on what the task card tells you to do. However, you'll probably be able to describe the activity itself, its benefits, when you do it, why you like it etc.

-perfect exercise for those who are complaining arthritis
-creates a toned muscle
