Hello BeautyCat,

You are welcome to submit your short writing pieces here and to ask for feedback from other users. I'm afraid that we aren't able to give feedback ourselves, as we are simply too small a team with too much other work to be able to do this. Sorry!

All the best,

This is very helpful. Thank you.
I am going to take the exam soon. Is it possible to get 8.5 ? I need that band for some reasons.

Hello Derbas,

I'd suggest you refer to TakeIELTS – it has all kinds of useful information and advice.

Good luck with your exam!

Best wishes,

hi krik
Is it important to learn expressions for ielts exam?
your sincerely

Hello bazan65,

Yes, it is! In fact, the higher the mark you want, the more important it is to learn expressions. Probably the best to do this is by reading extensively – see our Frequently asked questions page for advice on improving your vocabulary. I'd also suggest you check out TakeIELTS, which has lots of useful information and advice for preparing for the IELTS.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

I think everyone has his/her own ways to pass the exam. It depends on your English skills so dont stuck with one advice. Try to find out your strength and weakness points so work on them to improve your English.
