Hello Tai le,

I'm happy to try to help you with the sentence but I'm not sure what exactly the point of confusion is. What exactly in the sentence is not clear? Is the use of one of the words or phrases confusing, or perhaps a grammar structure? If you can be as specific as possible then we'll be better able to help you.


Best wishes,

Hello Mousa,

In the IELTS you can hear many different accents, not just one. We try to have a variety of British accents in our recordings and videos. By the way, if you are preparing for the IELTS, I'd recommend you take a look at our IELTS section and at TakeIELTS, where there is lots of useful information and free practice materials.

All the best,
