Hi Sarah,
I am going for the IELTS 2nd time last in 2011,
Practicing for that nowadays,I'm also seeking someone to practice spoken English , I can not show my email and other details on web

Hello Manish,

It's great that you want to practise speaking, but I'm afraid that any sort of personal information is not allowed, which is why part of your comment has been deleted. We plan to introduce a forum in which users can contact each other in the future, but I'm afraid it will be some time before it is released.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team


The best place I can recommend for you is the British Council's page for IELTS candidates TakeIELTS, where you can find tips and suggestions, practice materials, mock exams and sample answers.

Best wishes and good luck!

Hello Narendra Nishadraj,

I'm sorry to disappoint you but I'm afraid we don't do users' exercises from other sources for them. If we tried to do so then we'd have no time for anything else as we would be inundated with such requests! These questions deal with a wide range of areas, from grammar to vocabulary. Using the dictionary on the site (on the right) and the grammar section (in the menu at the top) you should be able to work through these issues and then we'll be happy to answer any specific questions you might have

Best wishes,
