Welcome back, Simon. After 8 fantastic years working on the blogs, you deserve all our thanks. I know so many students who you have passed the exam with your help.

Welcome back Simon.Thank you for being there for us.

Glad to have you here again! Sir.

Do you come across that there are IELTS PDF files circulating in the name of 'IELTS Journal by Smith Adam', which copies your teaching and what you've been posting here in your blog?

Glad to have you back, hopefully you are fully recovered and spent an amazing week.

I was waiting for you to ask a, in my opinion, crucial question which is ignored by most of us for Task 2.

There is a question on British Council website for writing task 2: A person’s worth nowadays seems to be judged according to social status and material
possessions. Old-fashioned values, such as honour, kindness and trust, no longer seem
To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?

The question is, on what we should give our opinion:
1. Agree on the point of view (i.e. I agree that nowadays people think its important, everyone assess each other accordingly). OR
2.The subject itself (i.e. I think social status and material possessions are not important to determine one's worth)


They also provide a model answer here:


Thanks for your kind and positive comments. It felt good to return to blogging today!

It has been good for me to have some time to reflect on my work (e.g. the purpose of this blog and the people whom I'm trying to serve). I'll share some of my thoughts this weekend.


I have a question, why is it so hard to get 9.0 from writing ?
