Everybody who what to go to study abroad, they should pass the IELTS exam, or they will not allow to go aborad. I want to study in Australia, so I should pass the IELTS exam, it is not easy to get 5 in IELTS exam. If I want to go aborad I should study hard. I was taught by foreigners, and did not taught us more about IELTS exam, so I should study the skills of taking exam. If we did not study English, we will fall in the coming exam. There are many facts causing the result of the exam. If you too nervous you will not do very well in the exam. We should have a normal psychology. we should read the title carefully, or you will make some mistakes.

Daniel - Getting a band 5 in IELTS is easy. In the speaking test, make sure that you keep talking. You should try to answer the question, but even if you do not, you will still get 5. In the writing test, make sure that you write about the topics and write at least 150 and 250 words, as required.

Everybody knows that if you want to go aboard, you must pass an exam-IELTS exam. I feel it is very difficult for me. It should know much vocabulary and outclass knowledge, but I feel my vocabulary is limited. On June 19th, I will join the school’s IELTS exam. On June24th I will join the society’s IELTS exam. I am very worried about it Sad . I have no confident to pass Great 5. If I can not get Great 5, I can not continue to study in this school next team. Crying or Very sad I will work much harder than before, in order to pass the exam. Then I can realize my dream what is I can go aboard to study. Razz

Then, what kind of books I should buy, for example, business, life, or knowledge. I know that to go aboard is a lot of people's dream, I feel this kind exam is very difficult. I hope you can give some suggustion for me, make me have more confident for the exam. I will express my appreciation for your help.

Hi Daniel,

I have just set up a website to help students improve their writing skills in preparation for the Academic IELTS exam.

The academic exam is for people wanting to study abroad in an English-speaking environment.

My website offers sample questions, online exercises with instant feedback and practice tests with model answers.

You can find the site at www.successatielts.com

Have a look and see for yourself.

Good luck with the exam!

Jenny Bedwell

Hi,

At the moment, our site www.successatielts.com only deals with writing practice.

However, we are currently working on ideas to include speaking and listening practice too, hopefully by the end of December.

So....watch this space!

In the meantime, there are many ways you can improve your listening and reading skills on the internet.

Have you tried downloading podcasts from the BBC website for example? Or try the British Council's LearnEnglish website for more podcasts and learning material.

By the way, did you find our website useful for writing practice?

Jenny
